The first six weeks can be a real trial. Hold on to the thought that right around that six-week mark you will be rewarded with one of the most gratifying milestones in your entire parental career--your baby will beam a genuine smile at you. Yes! Your baby can now track objects with his eyes, and can be put on his tummy several times a day for short periods of time.
Even at this young age, your newborn can recognize voices and focus on your face or a toy if it is close to his face. He is learning to track objects with his eyes.
In your baby's second month, he'll flash his first intentional smile. His movements become more voluntary and less jerky, and your baby gains control of his neck. He also starts batting and kicking at toys.
