My boy Robert is 6 weeks old and i feel he is doing things a lot earlier than he is meant to. He was 52 cm at birth and within four weeks had already grown 6.5cm. He smiled at 3 weeks, rolled on his side around the same time. Lifted his head from birth. He is already showing signs of holding thins and will stick his hand being a dummy to stop it falling out and then try and push it back in if it does. He was 9 days overdue and had was delivered via c-section after a failed induction. He is bottle fed. I don't know whether to be proud of him or sad in that he is growing up so fast. Anyone else found the same thing. Is he developing quicker than most babies and is this maybe because he was overdue?
