Roll, sit, come here. These almost sound like dog commands, don’t they? These things are actually some of the milestones baby will be reaching soon. You’ll be amazed how quickly they develop new skills!
Starting solids is a big deal! There are a lot of questions:
When do I start?
What should I give baby first?
How soon can I give them their second food?
Answers to these questions and more on our starting solid foods blog post.
Tummy Time Isn’t Over
Rolling over doesn’t mean Tummy Time is over! Keep it up! Tummy Time is a great way to play with baby. Peek-a-boo and singing songs helps keep baby’s interest. Lay baby on a blanket, mat, or carpet to give them the sensory experience of feeling many different textures.
Baby’s teeth will be popping in soon! Don’t be surprised if they chew on their hands or their gums are a little swollen. Chill a wet washcloth for them to chew on for comfort, but don’t give them anything frozen solid. Start brushing as soon as baby’s first tooth appears.
