Baby’s Development – Week 44
Climbing is your baby’s newest trick. If you don’t have safety gates installed, he’ll be on step five by the time you turn around. Falling from even a small height can be pretty traumatic and dangerous for a baby of this age. So keep your eyes peeled.
Coming to terms with a disability
Learning your child has a disability can be big shock for parents. There can be disbelief, anger, worry, sadness. There are numerous supports, though, to help parents make the challenging transition to becoming the parent of a disabled child.
Urinary problems in your baby, such as dark and very concentrated urine, could simply be a sign that your baby isn’t drinking enough fluids. Or it could be something more serious, such as a fever, a blockage or an infection. It’s important to seek advice from your doctor if the problem persists and if he’s not wetting his nappy regularly (around five times a day). Offer him plenty of sips of cooled boiled water throughout the day to keep his fluids up.
