Your Baby's 22nd Week of Life

What's Happening with Your Baby

Your baby can probably roll over... and back. Soon he'll discover that he can roll to get where he wants to go. He is on the road to becoming quite mobile. Your little one is also now capable of copying some facial expressions. Smile, crinkle your nose and stick out your tongue and see what he does.

Let your baby practice rolling back and forth across paper or magazines -- the crinkly noise will encourage him to roll more. Don't use newsprint, as it could contain chemicals harmful to your baby.

Taking Care of Yourself

As your baby begins to expand his food repertoire, you might be feeling like you spend too much time in the kitchen preparing special foods. Make things easy on yourself. Puree steamed vegetables or fresh fruits and freeze the mixture in clean ice cube trays. When frozen, place the cubes in Ziploc-style freezer bags. Simply thaw the cubes when your little one is hungry.
