What's Happening with Your Baby
Your baby is becoming much more vocal as she is beginning to make two-syllable sounds, including some vowel-consonant combinations. Your little one also is getting stronger; she can now hold her head level when she is pulled to a sitting position.
Taking Care of Yourself
You may feel as though you're stumbling through parenthood and that your baby isn't following the book. But books are based on the average baby, and every baby is unique. Enjoy this time when your baby is establishing her personality. Invest in one or two books about your baby's care and development and discuss your baby's progress with other parents to reassure yourself that your baby is maturing at a normal pace and that you are doing a great job parenting.
