Your baby this week

Research shows that babies in their fourth-month can understand all the sounds that make up their native language. With this in mind, it is important that you talk to your baby as much as possible. Give everything a name and provide a running commentary to what you are doing, for example, ‘shall we change Millie’s nappy? Come on Molly let's go upstairs to your room’.

Your 14 week old baby may begin to be able to repeat sounds she hears you make, but they will probably sound more like ahh, boo, caa than anything that resembles a word. When she makes a sound like ‘ahh-coo’ repeat it back to her so she can hear what it sounds like.

You this week

Whilst the government recommends that parents sleep with their baby’s cot in their room for the first six months, some of you will be co-sleeping with your baby and some of you (especially those with noisy, snuffly babies) may have moved your baby into her own room already. There is no right and wrong here as long as you practice safe sleeping habits. Look at our article on safe sleeping and read encouraging good sleeping habits for a sleep-safety update. As the weather changes constantly and you worry about what to put your baby in at night, why not invest in a few baby sleeping bags with different togs so you can be sure your baby is at the right temperature for her environment.

Your baby’s third set of immunisations should happen sometime this month now your baby is 14 weeks old.
