Your Baby, Week 22

Your baby has learned to turn over from her tummy to her back.

baby sucking on toes

Babies usually roll this way first, since it’s easier, and later learn to roll from back to front.

 

  • While she’s lying on her back, your baby is likely grabbing her toes, and maybe even sucking on them!

 

  • Your baby can also sit propped up, but will topple over if not supported.
