Is it normal for a baby to move in your stomach at 3 months?

Is it normal for a baby to move in your stomach at 3 months?

Probably not: Most first time moms feel their baby moving around 20 weeks gestation. Women who have had children can sometimes feel the baby a couple weeks earlier.

My baby is 4 months old and likes to sit in her walker.She is now pushing it around. Is that bad will it mess up the development of her legs.

My baby is 4 months old and likes to sit in her walker.She is now pushing it around. Is that bad will it mess up the development of her legs.

If she's in It <10%: Of her waking hours, was full-term & has typical development, probably not. You have to baby-proof your house sooner- especially re: dangling cords to hot appliances, stairs & open doors & monitor her closely. Walkers abduct the hips, not a natural position for walking. Gross (large) motor skills progress head-toe the first year, so tummy time is best for play. " crawl before you walk" is true. ...Read more
