Starts between 4 1/2 weeks – 5 1/2weeks

Harvey’s Week:  11/03/2015-18/03/2015

Leap1

Summary of leap 1:  This leap sees the rapid maturation of metabolism, internal organs and senses.  Together with a growth spurt in head circumference, a baby will be able to notice more of what’s happening in the world around him.

After this leap, Harvey

  • looked at things longer & more frequently;

  • responded to touch differently

  • was more awake and alert

 Note:  Harvey didn’t give a social smile until around 8 weeks.
