3–6 MONTHS RAISING HIS HEAD

Decoded message:

I want you near me so that I can see you.

Suggested actions:

Staying close

Go see your child and talk to him.
He will babble away at the sound of your voice.
Hold him in your arms, when possible, and give him your undivided attention.

Promoting play

Hold your child in a sitting position, so that he can clearly see your face.
Be careful to support his back.
He can now grasp objects.
Make sure soft rattles and plush toys are within his reach.
Set him down on his belly on the floor and lie down in front of him.
Your baby will try to raise his head and chest to see you.

Providing tender loving care

Cheer him on.
Tell him that he will make it and encourage him to raise his head again.
