Baby’s Development – Week 32
If your little one is an early starter, she might be attempting a wobbly stand by now. This usually begins with pulling herself up and leaning on a coffee table or chair. If you haven’t thought about it yet, now’s the time to start spotting and childproofing potential dangers.
Making time for reading before a nap or at bedtime is a great way to calm your child for sleep. As well as creating a lovely, quiet bonding time for you both, it will sow the seeds for a lifelong love of books.
The benefits of the family bed
Some parents work hard to encourage their child away from the family bed in the quest for a good night sleep, feeling it’s best for baby and mom and dad. However, research has shown that the family bed has enough physical and emotional benefits that it could be worth re-thinking the rush to the cot.
Underarm temperature readings
Some doctors recommend taking the auxiliary temperature (under the baby’s arm) over other methods. It’s convenient, safe, and can be easily taken with a regular digital thermometer.
Food to make you beautiful
While you might not have the time, or the finances, for massages and facials just yet, there are simple things you can do at home to make sure you’re looking and feeling your best. Making simple changes, such as upping your water intake, stocking up on vegetables and fruit and saying ‘no’ to processed and saturated fatty foods will make the greatest changes in the way you look and feel. Increased energy, great skin, not to mention a loss of extra baby weight, will have you feeling amazing in no time. Adding some supplements to your diet can also work wonders.
