Babies between three and six months old have have come a long way in the first three months and they are usually very social  beings who delight in being with you.  Parents have usually learned enough of their baby's ways and messages to get their responses right for most of the time. Early troubles such as feeding difficulties and crying have often settled down.

The Raising Children Network website has a lot of information about babies, including information about development, behaviour, fitness, health and daily care. As well as articles there are several videos. The Raising Children Network site has been funded by the Australian Government.
