What's Happening with Your Baby
A new sound may come booming out of your baby this week -- a squeal. It will delight her when she realizes how to repeat this new noise. As with other newly developed skills, she'll likely repeat the squeals until she finds something else of interest. Around this time your baby may also begin teething. To help your little one through this often-difficult process, provide many different (safe) objects on which she can gnaw -- but beware, nearly everything, including you, is fair game for your teether.
