Your 15 week old baby
How your 15 week old baby is developing
At 15 weeks , your baby is ready for new physical challenges. Try placing the baby on his belly. He may lift his head and shoulders up , using his arms for support. He may be able to roll from tummy to back. It will be at least a month before he can do it the other way round. You can encourage rolling over by jiggling a toy next to the side the baby usually rolls to.
It is important to let your partner have a turn with baby duties such as calming the baby down. This will give you a break and will help your partner build his confidence. It will also help baby and dad to bond.
You can help and encourage your partner but it is also important to leave him to experiment and learn on his own. Your partner may still need help when it comes keeping an eye on the baby’s needs such as feeding and managing gassy babies.
