It's important to note that all baby's grow at different rates, but to help you here's what to expect when your baby is one month old
In the first month, new parents and baby will be struggling to get used to each ther and, for mum and dad, it can seem like a constant stream of questions – Is my baby getting enough to eat? Does the crying mean she has colic
By the end of the first month, you'll have got the hang of breastfeeding, bathing, burping and handling your baby and will have settled into a comfortable routine that, though still exhausting, is much more manageable.
Although your baby has been able to recognise you since she was a few days old, by four weeks she might even be showing obvious signs of recognition and will react differently towards you than she does to strangers - making the sleepless nights and worry all worthwhile.
