Your baby knows you now. In fact, he will be able to distinguish the people he sees at home from their voices. At the same time, when he sees you, he will be excited and wave his arms. When you enter your baby’s room, he will follow you with his eyes, and react to your talking. It is important for the baby’s development to react to the sounds he hears.
Your baby is now slowly getting to know himself and the environment. For this reason, you can observe that your baby constantly examines his hands and puts the objects he has captured in his mouth. This behavior of babies is caused by the desire to recognize the object. With the help of a mirror, you can make it easier for your baby to recognize himself. He will quite enjoy this.

Diaper rash problem in 3 month old babies
Diaper rash is usually caused by the moist diaper irritating your baby’s leg. Not replacing the dirty diaper immediately causes irritation to the baby’s skin and may cause bacterial growth.
The best remedy for diaper rash is to change your baby’s diaper frequently and keep the diaper dry. You should use a diaper rash cream recommended by your doctor and clean your baby with warm water. You can use a soap special for babies. But, you have to make sure that you dry your baby well. We recommend that you call your doctor if the diaper rash gets worse, lasts more than a few days, or if wounds occur.
