    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Four month developmental milestones
    Dan Brennan, MD posted:
    At four months of age many babies will start to laugh and squeal, adding to the happiness of your day.

    Their hands tend to be more open (and less fisted) so they will be interested in reaching for objects and may try to bring it to their mouths.

    If they get enough tummy time, you should expect to see your 4 month old attempt to roll from front to back.

    At 4 months, babies are much more social and you will notice that they are generally happier when they are upright and can see what is going on. You may notice that feedings take longer if there are a lot of distractions, like older brothers and sisters playing in the same room.

    Enjoy this time with your baby, the fun is just getting started

    Dr. Dan
