1. Baby has learned a new word! In addition to “mama” and “dada,” Leila says one other word like “hi,” “bye” or “no.”
2. If I haven’t yet, I’m installing safety gates at the top and bottom of our stairs. Baby wants to climb and explore everything, and I want to keep the stairs off-limits!
3. My baby might become less interested in breastfeeding or bottle-feeding at this age — Leila is so interested in looking around and exploring, Leila doesn’t have time to sit still! I encourage Leila to eat by taking Leila into a quiet, dark room where there aren’t so many distractions.

4. My partner and I are making time for intimacy this week. Even if we don’t have time for sex, we’ll have an intimate conversation and talk about something besides just baby.
5. I’m helping baby learn to entertain herself. I play with Leila for a few minutes, and once Leila is engaged with the toy, I step back and let Leila play by herself. I’m patient with this, and I come back if he gets upset. Sometimes Leila gets so absorbed in the toy, Leila doesn’t even notice when I step out of the room for a minute!
6. I don’t want a picky eater, so I’m offering baby lots of different kinds of foods! I give Leila different types of grains like quinoa and barley, lots of vegetables like cauliflower and zucchini, and various fruits like cantaloupe and pumpkin.
7. My partner and I sat down with each other and any other caregivers to make sure the rules for baby are always the same. Consistent rules will help Leila feel secure.
