    This board makes me giggle! I thought I was the only one who thought of newborns as lumps.

    I agree, lumps through 2 months mostly, my Dear Daughter has started to be more fun after 3 months, each week brings more personality. She’s 15 weeks now (3 1/2 months) and has been giggling for 2 weeks and gives us big smiles. She’s light years better than she was even 1 month ago.

    At two months my daughter started laughing and responding to silly faces. I agree with most of the other PP’s though. The older the better.

    For us the magic time was 3 months, which was unfortunate because that’s when I had to go back to work and she began daycare.

    I’m the minority and prefer newborns, because they just sit there and you pet them. I’m also CFBC though so….

    KoiKove:  I babysat my niece four days a week from the time she was six weeks old until the time she was sixteen weeks old. She got really cute and fun around the 16 week mark, however, now that she is ten months old, I will have to say five months or so was such a fun age. I would maybe wait until the baby is about four to five months old.

    I started to really enjoy my son at 6 months. He was interacting a lot around 4 months. The older the better really.

    My LO is now 4 months and has gotten really interactive in the last few weeks- “talking”, laughing, making faces, rolling over, Etc.

    Three months is when they reach “full gestational age”- when they’re about the stage of development when they SHOULD be born. They’re super cute at that age! And they’re a bit less boring with smiles and whatnot.

    BubblesandCupcakes:  Human babies are born a bit before they’re “fully cooked”. They’re born at a significantly frailer state than most other animals. This is likely Mother Nature’s attempt to balance baby head size with mother pelvic size. If human babies were born when they were a bit more comparable to other animal babies they’d be born closer to the three month mark when they’re less delicate.
