The problem is they don’t really do that much to begin with. This can come as a bit of a shock to the first time parent of a new baby. You have spent nine months anxiously waiting for the arrival of this precious little person, the cute clothes are all hanging in the nursery which is beautifully kitted out with lovely things to amuse and stimulate him or her.
Then they arrive – and they do very little. Let’s see - crying (a lot and usually for no discernible reason), sleeping (never enough), feeding (if they can stay awake long enough), weeing and pooing. That really is about it, but somehow this baby manages to occupy every moment of a new parent’s day (and night).
But within a couple of months, their personalities start to shine through and the sleepless nights seem a bit easier when your baby smiles when they see you.
So here are a few things that babies commonly do that you just might not have been expecting!
Babies usually do most things when you are least expecting it as anyone who has ever changed a nappy can probably testify! But that’s what makes them so much fun. And if you have a video monitor, it’s like having your own non-subscription channel to baby TV, twenty four hours a day. So watch, enjoy, and feel free to share your funny baby stories.
