What were some of the milestones your March baby has had

My son is now 4months old and he was able to stand with support from me at 4 weeks and 3days…I have a pic of it on my profile, anyway his growth is normal,. His height is normal, but he was holding is head up very well around 6weeks, at 3months 2weeks he was starting to take steps with support of his hands, now at 4months he goes faster and the steps are more steady, he is also able to hold on to the coffee table, and toy bin, with no help from me, but I do stand right by him incase he decides to just let go…LOL
I started him on foods about 2weeks ago and many people told me no!!! he’s not even 4months yet, but I looked it up and it said that as long as your baby can hold there head up very well then they are ok to start foods, and it also said that a baby will let you know if they are not ready. He loves the cereal (oatmeal) and the fruits. I do the cheesy airplane sound as I bring the spoon to his mouth and he opens up wide…its so freakin cute!!!

My son could hold his head up at birth. Started smiling at 2 weeks. Scooted on his belly when he was 4 days old, and been scooting since. Standing with support around 3 weeks, and taking small slow steps around 4 weeks. He started laughing about 2 months old. Rolled over both ways at 11 weeks 5 days. Started solids at 13 weeks 4 days. Fed himself with a spoon 16 weeks 2 days. Held his own bottle for more than 30 sec at 17 weeks old. Sits with no support at all at 18 weeks old. And can stand with no support and use furniture to walk at 18 weeks 2 days! He is a very early developer. Weighs over 16 1/2 lbs and is 27 in long he is 18 weeks 5 days old. I also have pics and videos documenting each of these milestones :)

my son is 4 mos 2 days. He started rolling over front to back at 3 1/2 wks.... at 7 weeks, he began rollling over back to front.. now he can't get enough rolling over!
He just started scooting backwards..he started this at 3 mos 3 wks (last week)...
he loves standing and does it ALL the time if i let him! ... he started this around 7 wks old...loves walking up me...I'll let him "walk" on the floor to his daddy as he holds my fingers ..he loves it

He is only BF...haven't started him on any solids yet...probably going to try out some cereal this month, he's quite happy with just milk though but is starting to eye my food :)

as of 2 wks ago, he was 15 lbs 3 oz..not sure how big he is yet..we go for his 4 mo check up on tuesday (aug 3rd)\
last time i was told he was 95% for weight, and 90% for height, 75% for head :)

I would not let my baby jump into things that she is not yet ready for. She is 4 months 2 weeks almost, not yet started solid. She holds her head well and rolls over. Stand, no way, I don't think baby's bone at this age is strong enough.

Your son sounds identical to my son... lol, especially the stand up thing. At three weeks I played a game with him where I would count to three and I would stand him up. By the third time he pushed up on his own (and he still loves that game - I just can not use the word three too often, he thinks its time to stand). My son will be 5 m in two days and he has already taken steps to crawling (he loves the rocking back and forth thing) and he is already starting to pull him self up in his crib. I need to baby proof living room because he is so moble. My husband wants to note that he also likes to play with DVD's

He just started 2nd foods yesterday and its going well. I feel like Kimberly with I think I will pick up a new veggie tomorrow :)

Earlier this month he was weighted at 14lb 10oz, but this week I need to get him the size 3 diapers, size two are getting too tight and 3's will give him some more room to move around. Oh yeah and I feel sorry for Kimberly, the walking up the body thing, yeah I know that one, and then its a killer once he reaches my chest area.. lol

My son was rolling over at three weeks, from his stomach to his back. He's been able to hold his head up well from about that time as well. He's standing well, with little support and takes steps as he stands. He likes to walk up my body!

He's eating solid foods very well now. He's had rice cereal and oatmeal as well as carrots and squash. I'll let him pick out a new vegetable tomorrow!

He's into the size two diapers. He's just over 24 inches long and was nearly 14 pounds at his last weight check around a week ago.
