Your Baby, Week 24

Just like babies come in all shapes and sizes, they come with different personalities, too.

  • Some babies are easy-going
  • Others are easily upset
  • Some babies are very active
  • Others are more laid back

 

Your baby’s temperament is primarily an inborn trait. Identifying and respecting your baby’s personality--rather than trying to change the parts you don’t like—will make parenting easier now and as she gets older.

If you feel that you have an especially “high-maintenance” or unhappy baby, check with your pediatrician to see if there could be a medical reason behind her behavior.

Pacifiers have been used by parents to comfort children for years. Even so, they have their pro's and con's. Learn what they are and decide for yourself.

What are birthmarks? What causes them - and will they fade?
