Overview: Weeks 11 – 16

Here you are, a mother for three months already. Where did the last few weeks go? You’ll start to feel more accustomed to your new role with every month that passes, and the day-to-day activities that seem daunting today will be routine next week. That’s not to say you won’t be overwhelmed or confused from time to time, with brand new concerns popping up amidst the excitement.

That’s where we come in.

Continue to follow Babble’s month-by-month Baby’s First Year guide to break down everything you might be concerned about – from your baby’s new sleep schedule to introducing the bottle. There will always be varying degrees of “normal,” and perhaps some of your concerns are covered in previous or future guides (like returning to work, teething or cradle cap), but we’ll try to provide as much insight as possible into the third month with your little one. Also check in with our reader tips to find solutions for other pressing problems.

As you’re reading through these pages, remember that all of the experts, studies and guidelines aren’t nearly as important as your own motherly instincts. So read for understanding and reassurance, but also remember to listen to your own intuition. After all, moms are usually right.

    I have a 3 month old beautiful baby boy. I’m breastfeeding and my baby will only fall asleep on my breast even though he is full. My baby does not have a set schedule or scheduled sleeping times. I don’t know where to start or how 2 start with getting him used 2 a schedule everyday. Any suggestions??

    Hi Suzie. I have a 3 month old little girl who wasn’t on a set schedule and I felt like feeding / sleeping was all over the place. So I read the ‘tizzie hall save our sleep book’ which has wonderful advice on baby’s sleep cycles. I followed the suggested schedules for a few days in a row, making sure the schedule was the same but also being flexible. Now my little girl is into a great routine and sleeps through the night.
