Your Baby's 29th Week of Life

What's Happening with Your Baby

Your baby is beginning to express her opinions when it comes to mealtimes -- reaching for the spoon as you feed her and turning her head away when she's full. Your little one's skill for throwing some of her food overboard could be an expression of her culinary preferences or simply interest in how you will respond. The only way for you to figure out the difference is through experience and intuition.

Taking Care of Yourself

Running a household with a newly mobile baby at your feet can definitely be a challenge. But there are ways for you to minimize the amount of time you spend cleaning and maximize Play time with your little one. Find all the shortcuts you can. Keep a stain-removal stick high on a shelf near your baby's changing table and wipe it on stains as you remove your little one's clothes. Put your baby's socks in a mesh lingerie bag so they don't get lost in the wash. Wash everything you can in the dishwasher, including dishwasher-safe toys. Finally, keep it all in perspective. Will you look back and wish you'd kept a cleaner house or that you'd had more fun time with your little one?
