What's Happening with Your Baby
With speedy progress, your baby is now able to move from a tummy position to one where she's sitting up all by herself. As your little one becomes more independent, you may be tempted to intervene when she's trying to solve a problem; allow her to discover things on her own. Carefully supervise, and step in if she becomes overly frustrated, but by not allowing her to explore things, you will deprive her of important learning opportunities.
Taking Care of Yourself
As your baby enters the separation-anxiety stage, where she's anxious when you leave her sight, you may find it more challenging to get time for yourself and maintain your outside interests. Continuing to see your friends and do things for yourself is still important. Since your baby is still a pretty good traveling companion you might want to consider taking her right along with you. If you want to get out for a bit on your own, scheduling your departure when your baby is not overly tired or hungry will make it easier on your little one. Take heart
