Babies follow a quite predictable line of development milestones during their first year. First they just sleep, then become a bit more awake, starts to smile, then talk etc.
It is fun to know what to look for and what you can do to encourage your baby.
But don't become competitive! Babies are different. If your baby rolls over early or late compared to the average says absolutely nothing about the prospects of him becoming a doctor or a rock star or a happy person for that matter...
Our oldest son didn't walk until he was 20 months old. That is considered quite late by any time table. Was it a problem? No! Was he abnormal? No! He just liked crawling, I suppose!
Most kids are completely normal, whether they are early or late compared to the statistical development milestones.
Of course, if you are worried that something might be wrong with your baby, promptly talk to a pediatrician!
A newborn baby doesn't need all that much stimulation. But the older your baby gets, the more interested will he become in his surroundings and in playing.
