Your 17 week old baby
How is your 17 week old baby doing
Your baby is now able to play with her hands and feet for a few minutes. Your baby is fond of using her hands to do the same thing over and over again. She may try something different to see how it feels.
Your baby is able to amuse herself. You should continue reading books to her or flicking through pages.
You may have guilt when you leave the baby with family, friends or a trusted baby sitter. It is okay to feel guilty but you should know that you also need to take a break. If you’re planning on going back to work, being apart now may be beneficial. You should also note that as your baby grows and develop, she has to learn to socialize with other people. Leaving your 17 week old baby with other people will be beneficial to her.
It is important to get a good and trusted baby sitter. This makes it easier to leave your baby with her.
