WHAT SHOULD HE BE DOING AT 4 MONTH
Dec 1, 2008 5:46PM
MY BB IS 4 MONTHS TODAY AND I WONDER ABOUT WHAT SHOULD HE BE DOING BY NOW.
SOUND MAKING, MOVEMENTS OR STAFF LIKE THAT.
WHAT IS YOUR BB DOING NEW?

the trouble is that every baby is different, but I find this website really good as it gives you what they should be doing, what they are learning to do and what some babies could be doing if ahead
for 4 months -
MASTERED SKILLS - At 4 months old, most babies can:
??????? Hold head steady when upright
??????? Sit in an upright position with support
??????? Can bear weight on his legs when supported
??????? Coo when you talk to him.
EMERGING SKILLS - may be able to:
??????? Start to roll over from front to back, but not able to roll from back to front
??????? Grasp a rattle or small toy
??????? Reach for an object.
ADVANCED - a few babies can:
??????? Imitate some simple sounds like da-da or ma-ma
??????? Sit without support.
My lo is 4 1/2 months - she can sit without support but has only rolled from front to back once
(by accident I think lol) and can olny roll from back onto her side.

baby is nearly five months and after reading what everyone else's lo are doing i think he is really behind! he hasn't got full control of his head yet. started sitting him with support but the problem i have is that is scrunches his stomach and he brings up his milk and for this reason can't give him a lot of tummy time so he can start rolling. he is very attentive though. grabs objects. the animals on his play gym get a right battering and pulling

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
