Your Baby's 36th Week of Life

What's Happening with Your Baby

Your baby is starting to recognize himself in the mirror. Play peek-a-boo with him, while standing together in front of a mirror and be prepared for some big giggles and grins! Your baby's awareness of his surroundings may have some drawbacks. He may have started waking up again in the middle of the night when he had been sleeping through it.

Taking Care of Yourself

Minimize the clutter and confusion in your life. Once a week, rotate your baby's books, toys and stuffed animals. Leave out just a few for his playtime. Too many toys can cause overstimulation, confusion and frustration. Your baby will be much happier when he can focus on one toy at a time, and your life will be easier if you have less to put away when your baby is finished playing.
