Your Baby's 20th Week of Life

Fun Activity

Babies love to play with their feet and who can resist those cute little toes? Playing "This little piggy" will be great amusement for both you and your little one. To jog your memory, here's one version. (Start with the big toe and wiggle each in succession as you say the following lines.)

This little piggy went to market,
This little piggy went home.
This little piggy ate roast beef,
This little piggy had none.
And this little piggy went wee-wee-wee all the way home!

Safety Alert

Avoid exposing your baby to direct sunlight during his first year -- and especially when he is under six months of age. Until recently, the American Academy of Pediatrics advised against the use of sunblock in babies under six months of age. Now they recommend, "For babies under six months of age, sunscreen may be used on small areas of the body such as the face and the back of the hands if adequate clothing and shade are not available. For older children, test the sunscreen on the baby's back for a reaction before applying it all over. Apply carefully around the eyes, avoiding the eyelids. If your baby rubs sunscreen into her eyes, wipe the eyes and hands clean with a damp cloth. If the sunscreen burns her eyes, try a different brand or try a sunscreen stick or sunblock with titanium dioxide or zinc oxide. If a rash develops, talk to your pediatrician."
