  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    First query pertaining to diet for your baby, only breast milk if that is not available then formula milk is given exclusively till 6 months .
    About development of a 4 month child is that at this age baby should have consistent eye to eye contact and social smile.

    Development at 3-4 months:
    Your baby is busy sorting out the basics of emotions and communication. She’s learning about the link between your words and your facial expressions.

    Your baby loves your face, but he might be finding new faces really interesting too.
    Your baby might occasionally cross her eyes, which is normal in the first few months. Your baby knows your voice and will turn her head to you when she hears you speak.
    Around this age your baby might start trying to have a conversation with you. When you talk he’ll listen, and try to reply. When he’s alone, you might even hear him trying to talk.
    Your baby is beginning to express herself more and more and might laugh out loud, smile when she sees and hears things she likes, and say things like ‘ah-goo’.
    Around this time, any extra crying and fussing settles, usually around 12-16 weeks. Babies cry for many different reasons, but sometimes there’s no obvious cause of crying.
    Your baby will reach out a lot to grab things like rings or rattles. He’ll love playing with them and might take a long look at them, give them a shake or put them in his mouth. Mouthing things is one of the main ways he’ll learn in the next few months. And now that your baby is using his hands more and more, you might notice him staring at them in wonder and amazement.
    When you hold your baby or sit her up with support, you might notice she has better head control and her head and neck don’t need as much support as they used to.
    Around this age, your baby will probably start rolling from tummy to back. In tummy time, he might lift his head high or push up on his hands. He might even sit up with some support behind and on each side of his body.

    When to seek help:-

    See your child and family health nurse or general practitioner if you have any concerns or notice that your four-month-old:
    1. isn’t making eye contact with you
    2. doesn’t pay attention to faces
    3. isn’t making any sounds
    4. can’t control her head while sitting
    5. isn’t lifting her head
    6. isn’t mouthing objects
    7. isn’t reaching and grasping for toys
    8. keeps hands in a fist most of the time
    9. crosses eyes most of time
    10. isn’t following moving objects with her eyes
    11. isn’t responding to noises
    12. experiences a noticeable and consistent loss of skills she once had.

    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back with follow-up questions.
