Your Baby's Seventh Week of Life

Fun Activity

Play patty-cake with your baby's feet while she's lying on her back. Patting baby's feet together say, "Patty-cake, patty-cake, baker man. Bake me a cake as fast as you can." While rolling baby's feet around each other say, "Roll 'em and pat 'em and mark 'em with a B and put 'em in the oven for baby and me." (Bring baby's feet up to her face.) You just might be blessed with a big smile.

Safety Alert

Carefully read the directions on any medication you might give your baby and consult with the pharmacist or your baby's health care provider for the proper dosage. Because your baby is so small and tends to keep medicine in her system longer than an adult, even the slightest amount above the prescribed dosage could result in an overdose. It is important to keep a record of when you give your baby medication -- just in case you forget.
