Your Baby This Week : 8 Month Week 1 Old

Your Baby this Week

Your child will understand what object permanence is by now. Also, your baby will soon begin crawling around, exploring the house. Observe your home from your baby’s vantage point, crouched low to the ground on your hands and knees to get rid of hazards. Move extension cords and other electrical cords up and out of reach. Install covers on electrical outlets within the baby’s reach. Take away long table cloths. Move delicate or heavy stuff to higher ground for a while. Keep poisons and other hazards away. These include household cleaners, nutritional supplements, pharmaceuticals, detergents and cleaning agents, as well as knives and other sharp objects. Add babyproof locks for cabinets and drawers that contain items that are sharp or otherwise dangerous.
