Your Baby Is 52 Weeks Old!

Happy birthday to baby! It's perfectly normal for parents to feel a mixture of pride at seeing how far you've come and sadness at how quickly your little one has gone from baby to toddler. Enjoy your day together — this is the beginning of an exciting new stage in both of your lives.

In addition to a fab first birthday party, baby needs to fit in a doctor’s appointment this month. Your ped will check baby’s growth and development, just like previous well-child visits.

To-do:

[tip]  Take your car seat to your local National Highway Traffic Safety Administration office to make sure it fits safety standards.
