Four months baby girl at play

The baby may be rolling over now but do not worry if they don’t until the next month or so. The normal range for this is quite large. The baby should be rolling by 6 months. If all the development of the baby is normal but 1 thing is late, then the baby is normal but has just one thing delayed. That is OK and if you read the two-month-visit page, sooner is not necessarily better. You should start using a spoon to feed your baby. It is still OK to put cereal in the bottle or feeders. If you are still only breast feeding, keep it up. Babies only require breast milk or formula for the first 6 months and do not require cereal. We will start the veg. & meats at 6 months. Only give rice or oatmeal cereal. Apple and bananas are OK. You also can give non-citric acid juices like apple, pear or prune. There is a tremendous increase in saliva, drooling and chewing. It still is not teething although few babies will have teeth now. The later the teeth erupt then the teeth are usually stronger. The increase in swallowed saliva and the increase in physical activity will cause more spitting up of milk in this age so do not worry. They also will have bonded with the parent and cry when they leave the room. They will bond most with the person who does most of the feedings. The other parent will get their feelings hurt when the baby cries when the other parent leaves but this is the normal bonding to the baby’s parent. This is not spoiled. You do not spoil them till 9 months or older when
