If you've been considering carpeting or rugs for your wood floors, now's a great time to invest. Baby will soon start testing out his legs, and the softer the floor for him to practice walking (and take some inevitable tumbles) on, the better.
[tip] As baby gets better at using his hands, he also gets better at putting things in his mouth. Keep objects smaller than an inch and a half (four centimeters) away from him at all times in order to prevent choking.
