24 week old baby

At around six-months your baby will be able to distinguish between different emotions and facial expressions and may get excited when you are happy or become upset if you are sad. She is also starting to understand where things live in the world in relation to her, so if something is out of sight, she can move to see it and if something is hidden in a toy box, she may attempt to find it. She also loves to mimic you. Try playing peek-a-boo by putting your hands up to your face and she will probably try to join in. Poking your tongue out, blowing raspberries and acting like a goon has never been so much fun. Sometime soon she may be able to turn to hear very quiet noises and will turn to find your voice even if you are some distance away.

Your 24 week old baby may also be able to sit unsupported for a while as her limbs, neck and back muscles become much stronger. She may still topple over from time to time when gravity gets the better of her so don’t leave her without cushions or a soft floor around her.

You this week

Hopefully the weaning process is going well, and your baby has experimented with a few first fruits and vegetables. You may have also encountered the first ‘solids’ poo! It’s a good idea to remind yourself what your 24 week old baby should and shouldn’t be eating:

At six months old your baby can now have gluten and wheat products and citrus fruits. From 12 months your baby can have whole cow’s milk as a main drink, honey, pate and soft cheeses.

Try to avoid products that contain nuts in them until your 24 week old baby gets to four or five.
