Your Baby's 25th Week of Life

Fun Activity

Hide a few of your baby's favorite toys inside an overturned basket or plastic bowl. At six months your little one is capable of remembering that the objects are present, even though she can't see them -- provided you show her a few times. Once she catches on, you might leave the objects under the bowl overnight to see if she discovers them the next day. A study conducted at the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand, found that children between six and twelve months were able to copy a simple demonstration that they were shown the previous day.

Safety Alert

Because your little one is likely to swallow without chewing, do not offer her peanut butter, raw carrots, nuts, whole grapes, popcorn, raisins, chips, uncooked peas, celery, hard candies or other hard, round foods. If offering hot dogs or other similarly shaped meats, they should be cut lengthwise and then into smaller pieces.
