Your Baby Is 28 Weeks Old!

Baby still gets most of her nutrients from formula or breastmilk, but be conscious of the nutritional value of any solid foods you serve. Cereal and mashed fruits and veggies are great first additions to baby's menu. If your family follows a vegetarian diet, talk with your doc before choosing the same path for baby.

Bustin’ a move
Baby’s fine motor skills (like picking up things with fingers and thumbs) develop faster than her gross motor skills (like crawling), which require the still-growing muscles in her arms, legs, and feet. Help her out by placing a toy just in front of her so she can practice moving toward it. Her improving agility makes keeping your home baby-proof more important than ever.

To-do:

Keep mealtime safe
Relieve baby’s teething pain
Talk to Bumpies in your area

[tip]  Watch the salt: Babies between six months and one year need no more than 250 to 750 milligrams of sodium per day. Look for baby food that contains 50 milligrams or less per serving.
