Your baby may begin to find great amusement in playing peek-a-boo. You can play it while changing her diaper, in line at the grocery store (when your baby is in a sling or secured safely in the grocery cart's infant carrier) or while down on the floor playing together on a blanket. Use your hands or a diaper to cover your face and then uncover and say "Peek-a-Boo," smiling at your little one. Though it will still be several months before your little one initiates this game, she will find great joy now in watching you act so silly!
When flying with your baby, the Federal Aviation Administration strongly advises that you use her car seat and strap her in her own airplane seat. (Check your car seat to make sure it's labeled as suitable for use in airplanes.) Concerns go beyond the fear of crashing. If you've ever been in an airplane that hit severe turbulence, you know it's difficult to maintain your balance. The down side of the FAA recommendation is that parents must purchase a seat for their baby when otherwise they wouldn't have to until their baby is two years of age. In recognition of this fact, some airlines offer half-price fares for children under two.
