Your Baby's 39th Week of Life

Fact of the Week

Theodore Wachs, a Purdue University professor of psychological sciences, has determined that children from highly noisy or chaotic homes experience less cognitive growth, delayed language skills, increased anxiety and have difficulty mastering their environment. To tone down the level of noise in your house, don't use the TV as background noise, establish a quiet place for your child to be by herself and read to your child in a quiet place.
