Your Baby's 12th Week of Life

Fun Activity

As you change your baby's clothes -- and his diaper -- you may notice his new delight in being naked. Why not give your little one some time to enjoy playing without any clothes, or diaper? Playing without clothes will give him the chance to try out his new skills without any of the restrictions they can provide. He will probably delight in experiencing the feel of different textures on his body. Of course, keep your little one warm and safe -- perhaps allowing him to play on a beach towel in a warm, sunny room, with you right next to him on the floor.

Safety Alert

Don't let your guard down when your baby is on the changing table. He may not have rolled over on his own yet, but before you know it he will be reaching for objects that he sees and he could easily propel himself over the side. Always keep one hand on your baby while he's on the table, regardless of whether your table has a railing or a restraint strap. It might help to focus his attention by hanging a mobile directly above his changing table.
