At this age, your baby will likely be able to hear loud noises, look at your face from a short distance, and lift her head up briefly.
She may also:
- have a spontaneous or almost reflexive smile
- have a social smile that occurs in response to something, like when you talk or sing to her. Keep in mind that some babies develop the social smile a little later, when they are one to two months old.
Normal GrowthAfter they lose weight during their first weight, babies then begin to gain about half an ounce to a full ounce each day. This rapid weight gain helps them to get back to their birth weight by the time they are two weeks old.
Don't worry if your baby surpasses her birth weight though. That usually isn't a sign of overfeeding, and usually just means that your baby didn't lose much weight during her first days because she was a good feeder or your breast milk came in quickly.
