Your Baby this Week
Your baby is learning that he has hands and fingers, feet and toes. He’s also starting to talk more. Not with words, of course, but by cooing, with increasing goos, gurgles, and grunts. This will mark the beginning of language development. Talk to your child often. You will be able to hold his attention through a transition from a low to a high pitch the singsong style that parents in every culture tend to use when talking to a child. Some of you may still have trouble getting your baby to breastfeed correctly. In such a case, it often helps to try out different breast feeding positions.
