My Baby – Week 14

Can you believe that your little one has already begun his fourth month of life? He is probably babbling and talking to you with long open vowel sounds, like ahhh or ooooh. He may also be strong enough to do a teeny, tiny push-up, lifting his chest up off the floor – even if only for a few seconds.

You may also notice that she has begun to notice when you are gone, and she may even cry when you leave the room or are out of sight. And her smile may be becoming bigger and better every day!

Mr. or Miss Wiggles…

As your infant grows stronger and stronger each day, you may find it increasingly difficult to keep him still during diaper changes. Some changing tables have straps, which are great for keeping your little one safe; but if you don’t have this option, it’s best to get down on the floor or place him on the center of a large surface, such as your bed, for a wiggly, safe diaper change. Remember, as your baby gets stronger and wigglier, it's extremely important not to leave him alone, even for a second, when he is on a changing table, or any other raised surface!

Choosing Safe Toys

  • Now that your baby is most likely shoving anything and everything into her mouth, it’s important that the toys you give her are safe. Below, you will find some tips on selecting safe toys for your infant.
  • Adhere to age guidelines. If a toy says ages three and up, steer clear until your baby is older.
  • Be aware of safety recalls. The website for the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has information on infant toy recalls at
  • Check for choking hazards. Button-size plastic eyes on stuffed animals, and other small parts, can be deadly. A good rule of thumb… if any part of the toy is small enough to fit inside a toilet paper tube, then it is too small for your infant to play with.
  • Be wary of sharp corners!

General Safety Tips

Now that your baby is getting closer to crawling, have you…

  • Put medicines out of reach?
  • Locked all cabinets containing cleaning products?
  • Put together a first aid kit?
  • Put non-slip pads under your rugs?
  • Put plastic plugs in all your sockets?
  • Secured any trailing electrical cords that your baby could become caught in?
  • Removed all tablecloths that your child could eventually reach and pull on?
  • Purchased safety gates for the tops and bottoms of your stairs?

My Baby – Week 14

Tell us what you think!


  1. My granddaughter was 2.40 Kg and length is 46 Cm at Birth, now it is 4.70Kg and 62 Cm by 17th week. Are weight and length Ok?. Except weight gain, she is very active and absolutely normal. We are enjoying every moment of her growth.

    • Megan Klay says:

      Hi there – She is definitely at a lower percentage on the average growth charts for weight, but as long as her pediatrician isn’t concerned, I’m sure she’s coming along fine! Just be sure to address any concerns with her pediatrician to make sure she’s getting enough breast milk or formula. Best wishes!
