At this stage, growth and development are very important for your baby. Take a glance at your baby’s social, language, cognitive and physical development at the age of 4 months.

Social or Emotional Development

Now, your baby has started expressing his or her emotions through smiling, laughing, crying or babbling.

Keep lots of toys with sounds and textures around your baby to explore more. However, avoid giving small objects, as they might cause choking hazards.


At 4 months, your baby enjoys playing with you and other people. When you stop playing, he or she might cry.

He or she can imitate some gestures or facial expressions, such as smiling or frowning.

Looking at people, your baby can smile spontaneously.


Language or Communication Development

At this age, your infant is learning to communicate and started using his or her voice.
