What's happening with Your Baby
Your baby is developing his pincer grasp ability. This will serve him well as he begins to feed himself the little morsels you place on his highchair tray. However, remember that this technique will also allow him to find even the tiniest speck of food or dirt around your house. Your little one is also showing an interest in grabbing the spoon while you feed him. Some moms have found that giving their baby a second spoon during mealtime helps occupy their little one long enough to get a few spoonfuls into his mouth.
Taking Care of Yourself
Breast cancer is not a threat to take lightly. According to the National Alliance of Breast Cancer Organizations, more than 70 percent of women diagnosed with breast cancer have no identifiable risk factors. Take the time each month to monitor changes in your breasts. You owe it to yourself, your baby and the rest of your family.
