Your baby’s ninth week
Your little one is growing every day. He may seem even bigger as he begins to stretch out his body. He’s growing strong enough to roll over and move around. Be careful to supervise him closely, especially when he’s laying on a changing table, bed or other piece of furniture. Don’t trust safety straps to hold him in place. You’ll be amazed at just how mobile he can be even at this young age.
Life takes on a new perspective as his legs strengthen enough to bear most of his weight when supported. He’ll enjoy this new outlook. Offer him new views each day by wearing him in a sling or forward facing baby carrier as you go about your daily business. Continue to narrate your actions as you cook, clean and socialize. The more words he hears now the easier it will be for him to imitate sounds and build his vocabulary later. And, you just might teach him a bit about cooking and cleaning so he can help you when he’s old enough!
