There's nothing more exciting that watching your baby discover and do new things. Whether it's the first time she giggles at a silly face you make or the look on his face when he learns to crawl, these special moments are ones that make a mom's heart swell with joy. Even on the early end of the infant phase there are big things happening with baby on a regular basis. But aside from the more obvious milestones, there are some barely noticeable skills your baby should probably have by 3 months old. And chances are your kiddo is totally nailing these developmental benchmarks, but you may have thought it was typically baby stuff.
Once your little one rounds the corner from newborn to infant, you'll start to notice changes in the areas of movement, vision, and hearing, as well as development in her social and emotional connections, explained Healthy Children from the American Academy of Pediatrics. Your 3 month old is staying busy with tummy time and surprising you with responses to your words and actions. But even actions that seem commonplace or ordinary can tell you big things about your baby's growth and learning. These five barely noticeable skills are your little one's way of letting you know she's crushing her 3 month old milestones.
