When alert, your baby will likely focus on your face. Babies are especially drawn to higher-pitched voices, so give into that urge to use "baby talk." You are introducing your baby to language and your baby will enjoy it.</p> <p>Doctors use these milestones to tell whether a baby is developing as expected. There's a wide range of what's considered normal, so some babies gain skills earlier or later than others. Babies who were born <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/parents/preemies.html/">prematurely</a> reach milestones later. Always talk with your doctor about your baby's progress.</p> <p>Here's what your newborn might do in the first few days after birth:</p> <h4>Communication and Language Skills</h4> <ul> <li>turns his or her head toward a parent's voice or other sounds</li> <li>cries to communicate a need (to be held or fed, to have a <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/parents/diapering.html/">diaper changed</a>, or to sleep)</li> <li>stops crying when the need is met (your baby is picked up, fed, or changed; or goes to&nbsp;<a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/parents/sleepnewborn.html/">sleep</a>)</li> </ul> <h4>Movement and Physical Development</h4> <ul> <li>moves in response to sights and sounds</li> <li><strong>rooting reflex:</strong> turns toward breast or bottle and sucks when a nipple is placed in the mouth</li> <li><strong>Moro reflex</strong> (startle response): when startled, throws out arms and legs, then curls them back in</li> <li><strong>fencer's pose</strong> (tonic neck reflex): when head is turned to one side, straightens the arm on that side while bending the opposite arm</li> <li><strong>grasp reflex: </strong>holds a finger placed in the palm; toes curl when touched on the sole of the foot</li> </ul> <h4>Social and Emotional Development</h4> <ul> <li>soothed by a parent's&nbsp;voice and touch</li> <li>calms self when upset</li> <li>has periods of alertness</li> </ul> <h4>Cognitive Skills (Thinking and Learning)</h4> <ul> <li>looks at and follows faces when quiet and alert</li> <li>stares briefly at bright objects placed in front of the face</li> </ul> <h3>When to Talk to Your Doctor</h3> <p>Every child develops at his or her own pace, but if there's something that concerns you, tell your doctor. Also tell the doctor if your baby:</p> <ul> <li>doesn't suck well at the breast or on a nipple</li> <li>has an arm or leg that seems weaker than the other</li> <li>is extremely irritable and difficult to soothe</li> </ul>El desarrollo de su hijo: 3-5 díasLos médicos utilizan estos hitos evolutivos para saber si un bebé se está desarrollando según lo que cabe esperar. Hay una gran variabilidad en lo que se considera normal, de modo que algunos bebés adquieren habilidades antes y otros lo hacen después.https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/es/parents/development-3to5d-esp.html/b3158daa-388e-4a9b-8f93-bd46a5ee9704

Communication and Your NewbornFrom birth, your newborn has been communicating with you. Crying may seem like a foreign language, but soon you'll know what your baby needs - a diaper change, a feeding, or your touch.https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/parents/cnewborn.html/804c85f1-c9ab-4f9a-b025-1d0c3005e81a
Learning, Play, and Your NewbornPlay is the primary way that infants learn how to move, communicate, socialize, and understand their surroundings. And during the first month of life, your baby will learn by interacting with you.https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/parents/learnnewborn.html/43b40b93-3a6c-4eb0-9bdf-7cf7662f3a2f
Movement, Coordination, and Your NewbornIt may seem like all babies do is sleep, eat, and cry, but their little bodies are making many movements, some of which are reflexes.https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/parents/movenewborn.html/bc155a68-b011-44aa-8599-a1f5e773df0a
