Your Baby Is 25 Weeks Old!

Baby's halfway to his first birthday! He's becoming quite the little charmer and loves to smile, laugh, and coo at you and other loved ones. He adores attention, which makes now a good time to start introducing the concepts of right and wrong. Change your tone of voice depending on baby's behavior, and soon enough, he'll start to catch on.

Roller Baby
Baby loves to move around, whether it’s by rolling, sitting, crawling, or lunging. Just keep a close eye on him to make sure he’s not rolling into some type of trouble. Keep him in comfy clothes that let him move around easily rather than fancy outfits that can irritate him or inhibit his movement.


[tip]  Once baby sprouts his first tooth, wrap gauze around your finger and use it as a toothbrush. No toothpaste necessary yet; just be gentle — baby’s teeth are still soft.
