What's Happening to Your Baby
It is very common for babies of this age to continue to wake during the night. You can help your baby to learn that nighttime is quiet time. By following a relaxing bedtime ritual and not providing stimulating activities as bedtime approaches, you will help your little one learn how to calm down for bed. When he wakes at night, do not turn on the overhead light when changing a diaper or feeding him
Taking Care of Yourself
This may be the week for your first postpartum checkup. At this visit, your health care provider will make sure that your body is recovering normally from giving birth. As always, bring your questions with you and discuss any concerns that you and your partner may have. Though frequent and exclusive breastfeeding during the first six months will reduce the likelihood of another pregnancy, you may wish to discuss birth control options with your health care provider.
