2-3 months
In his first couple of months, your baby is becoming more responsive to his world. He’s not quite ready to laugh, but he’ll light up when you pick him up for a fun game of peek-a-boo. He’ll even hold your gaze. As he moves into months 3 and 4, he’ll start to explore by stretching his arms and legs—putting him on the path to a greater understanding of the world around him. And you’ll see more of his personality starting to shine through. Make sure he has the stimulation and good nutrition, including DHA, he needs to help him reach his milestones. The nutrients in a well-balanced diet (whether you’re breastfeeding, formula feeding or both) are especially important in the first stages of life.
