It is very important to observe, How active your baby is. You might not observe or think of the first few weeks of your baby’s life as being a time when baby is very physically active (although you may feel that you and your spouse are being run dirty in caring for her!). True, Baby is certainly not able to run through the park or play a ball with another child at this age, but there are still many opportunities for her to begin to develop.
For example, you must have noticed that your infant has started kicking during the 2nd month of life? As this movement is mostly reflective at this point, before long baby will be able to flex and straighten her legs whenever she wants to. By the time when baby is 3 months old, he/she may be able to start kicking herself over from her front to her back (later, by 6 months of age, infant start rolling from back to front). At about 3 to 4 months, when you hold your baby upright with her feet resting on the floor, baby will push down and straighten her legs as though he/she were standing on his/her own, and baby will probably discover that she can bend his/her knees and bounce.
