Your Baby's 14th Week of Life

Fun Activity

Let your baby practice his most recent skill -- rolling over. Place him on a quilt, on his tummy and show him a favorite toy just out of his reach. If he tries to roll, help him out so he begins to understand the cause and effect of rolling.

Safety Alert

You may have heard other parents talking about starting solids around three months of age. Often they are started with the hope that it will help their baby sleep through the night. There is no research to back this up. The American Academy of Pediatrics states, "Exclusive breastfeeding is ideal nutrition and sufficient to support optimal growth and development for approximately the first six months" of a baby's life. If you have a family history of allergies, deciding when to introduce solids to your baby's diet can be particularly important. Discuss this issue with your baby's health care provider.
