Baby Checklist. Week #6
1. I’m getting really good at knowing what my baby is saying. I’m learning to read Johnny’s cues, and know if Johnny’s hungry or tired — usually even before Johnny starts to cry.
2. I thought all those freezer meals I prepped when I was pregnant were going to last forever, but now they’re starting to get a little low. Time to start cooking again.
3. My baby’s immune system isn’t fully developed, so I’m making sure to protect Johnny from germs. When we’re out in public, I keep sanitizer handy, and I never give Johnny a toy or pacifier that’s fallen on the ground.

4. I’m making sure to stay hydrated, especially if I’m breastfeeding. I bought some extra water bottles so I can always keep one filled and nearby. 
5. My partner and I have talked about choosing a babysitter. We’ve started making a list of instructions about our baby’s bedtime routine so we can get an evening babysitter when we feel ready.
6. My baby startles easily. If Johnny hears a sudden noise or if I put Johnny down too quickly, Johnny throws Johnny’s arms out and then pulls them back.
7. I love talking with my baby! Johnny doesn’t talk back, but Johnny does imitate my expressions. You should see her smile!

Baby Checklist. Week #5
1. My baby is starting to pay more attention to the world. Johnny notices sounds and looks around to try to figure out where the sound came from.
2. My baby tries to reach for things! When I put Johnny in the play gym, Johnny looks at the different colors and bats at the hanging toys. Baby doesn't really have control of Johnny’s arms yet, but Johnny seems to enjoy trying.
3. If I’m breastfeeding, I’ve talked with my lactation consultant about how my food affects baby. We’ve discussed whether I should make any changes to my diet.
View full
4. My doctor said I can start regular exercise, so I joined the gym! I plan to work out in the evenings while my partner spends some quality time with baby.
5. My partner and I aren’t ready to leave baby with an evening sitter yet, so we’re planning some “date nights in.” We’re taking some time to focus on each other and stay connected.
6. I had my 6-week postpartum doctor visit. I talked with my doctor about my birth control options and about whether I’m ready to start exercising.
7. Before I start pumping to save breastmilk, I’ve learned about how to store breast milk so I can reuse it later.

Baby Checklist. Week #4
1. Milk or formula is all my baby needs! I know not to give baby any water. Even if it’s really hot outside, breastmilk or formula gives Johnny all the hydration Johnny needs.
2. I’m giving baby a chance to experience different textures and colors. I put different fabrics on the floor for Johnny to touch during tummy time so Johnny can explore the sense of touch.
3. My baby is starting to get better head control. I still support Johnny’s head when I lift Johnny, but it doesn’t feel like lifting a bobble head toy anymore.

4. I’m getting plenty of opportunity to use those cute bibs I got at my baby shower! Baby drools a lot, so I keep a bib on Johnny all the time.
5. Is it really time for me to go back to work already? I decided to start back on a Wednesday to give myself a short first week back. This will help me ease back into work.
6. I’m going to spend some quality time with baby! — I signed up for a Mommy and Me class like a yoga class or a postpartum exercise class.
7. I got my hair done! I told my stylist I need something that’s quick and easy for me to style at home.

Baby Checklist. Week #2
1. It’s never too early for tummy time! I’ve started laying my baby on Johnny’s belly for a few minutes every day to help baby build Johnny’s neck and back muscles.
2. I’ve been feeling a little down and stressed. It may just be the “baby blues,” but I’ve scheduled an appointment to talk with my doctor about my risk for postpartum depression.
3. How do I feel about pacifiers? My partner and I have talked with our lactation consultant and decided whether we want to introduce a pacifier.

4. My baby knows me! Johnny turns Johnny’s head toward my voice and studies my face while I’m talking.
5. Ouch. If I had an episiotomy or tear, I’m adding a few drops of tea tree oil in my bath to help me heal faster.
6. I’m getting my energy back! If I had an uncomplicated vaginal birth, I might be ready to start light exercise with a short walk around the block.
7. Baby is sleeping most of the day, but only for a few hours at a time. I’m doing my best to sleep whenever baby does so I can get some rest during the day. We probably won’t be sleeping through the night for a while!
