Toddlers 3-month-old milestones

There are many different milestones that a 3-month-old toddler can reach. They may start to roll over from their back to their stomach, and vice versa. They may also be able to grasp objects and hold them close to their face. Some babies at this age will even start to babble and make other noises. It’s important to keep track of your child’s development and note any progress they make. If you have any questions or concerns, be sure to consult with your pediatrician.

It’s also important to provide your toddler with plenty of opportunities for exploration and learning. Make sure they have a variety of toys to play with, as well as safe areas where they can crawl and play. It’s a good idea to put your toddler on a regular sleeping schedule so they will be able to fall asleep without being fed, rocked, or held.

Here are some of the major milestones you can expect from a 3-month-old:

Lifted head while lying down

A little girl wearing a hat

babies often lift their heads when they are first born, but this usually stops by the time they are a few weeks old. Some babies will start lifting their heads again around 3 months old

Rolled over

most babies can roll over by the time they are 3 months old, but some may not do it until they are 4 or 5 months old

Grasped toys

babies often start to grasp things in their hands and even bring them up to their mouths as early as 3 months old, although it will probably be a little while before they can hold toys

Tries to sit up with the help

your baby may sit up with some support at first, but then quickly begin to show signs that they are trying to sit up by themselves. This is a sign that they are growing stronger

Tries to push up on arms

if your baby rests on their stomach, you may notice them pushing up onto their elbows or forearms. They will likely show signs of trying to use their hands as well


many babies start babbling around 3 months old, and their babbling will become more complex as they get older. You may even be able to understand some of the words your baby is saying made other noises – your baby may start making other noises, such as cooing or gargling, around 3 months old. This is a sign that their speech development is starting to take off.

Of course, every baby develops at their own pace, so some of these milestones may happen sooner or later than indicated. If you have any concerns about your baby’s development, be sure to consult with your pediatrician. They will be able to help you figure out what is normal for your child and what may require further attention.


As a parent, it’s important to be aware of the different milestones your toddler can reach each age. This will help you to better monitor their development and ensure that they are on track. The milestones listed here are just some of the things you can expect from a 3-month-old toddler. If you have any concerns, be sure to consult with your pediatrician.
