Dr Claire Halsey tells you what developments to expect in the first two months
In the early weeks, your baby is totally focused on his relationship with you and close family and is more likely to be soothed by people who sound and smell familiar. He'll make eye contact from the moment he's born, and if he's crying, holding him will help him calm down. At around 6 weeks, you should get your first smile!
You can help your baby's development from day one by stimulating her senses.
