Your Baby this Week
After your baby masters the ability to grasp an object, an exciting step follows; finding his dominant hand. For now, your baby will experiment with both of his hands. A bias may be apparent around 9 months, but even then, some kids tend to be ambidextrous, sometimes until they start school. Most experts agree that babies and young children thrive in high quality child care. However, a child with special needs to keep in mind when you are choosing a day-care centre. When you visit a nursery, look at how the caregivers interact with the children. Are they responsive when a baby cries or gestures? Does the caregiver smile and seem happy? Is there a lot of body contact, such as cuddling, rocking, and cuddling? Ideally, the children build a secure attachment to their caregivers. At the same time, there is no guarantee that the person you choose is going to be sticking around through toddlerhood and beyond, so try to find out if the caregiver has a long-term commitment to the job. Do your research and make the best decision for your baby.
