Your Baby's 17th Week of Life

What's Happening with Your Baby

Your little one may now be noticing small objects, staring at them intently. It will be longer, though, before your baby perfects her pincer grasp and is able to pick up tiny things -- but that won't stop her from trying. Your little one's world is really expanding. She can now see across the room. Soon, she will begin exploring her interesting new world.

Taking Care of Yourself

This week, unwind with a facial. Save some money by giving yourself this special treat at home. First, cleanse your face as you normally would. Then, lie down for a minute with a warm washcloth on your face to open your pores. Next, lightly massage your face with a gentle cleansing scrub for a couple of minutes to dislodge any dirt. Finish with a warm water rinse. Then treat yourself to a facial mask. Apply the mask, making sure to avoid the eye area. Lie down and relax while listening to your favorite calming music. In just 15 minutes or so, you will feel completely rejuvenated. It can be very relaxing to trade facials with your partner as your little one is napping.
