14 Week Old Baby Development

Eat, sleep, poop. It’s all about routine, mama! Plus, who’s taking care of you??

  • 14 Week Old Baby Milestones 👶

    This week, you may start to notice your little one is able to look at you and their eyes are able to follow you around the room. This is because their head and neck strength is building and their visual tracking is improving. Try testing out her tracking abilities by moving an object from one side to the other to see if she will keep her eyes locked on the object, moving her head from side to side.

    As you notice your baby’s strength increasing, try sitting back and observing this miracle unfold. It is so important to let them figure out their body in their own way—and in their own time. Resist the urge to place them in a bouncer or hold them upright for too long. Baby’s learn best when they are given the chance to let their body lead the way!

    Your routine

    At this point, your little one is also starting to form a bit more consistency in their daily routines. Because baby can now go longer without eating (their stomachs are about the size of a plum!), their sleeping patterns, eating schedule, and even their poop schedule are all starting to become more and more clear to you.

    Try to stick to these simple routines as much as possible. Providing consistency and predictability early on helps ease stress and frustration in the early years—and particularly during periods of transition like the four-month sleep regression. Babies thrive on routine and consistency—keep the flow going, mama!

    I Think I Can, I Think I Can

    Baby Week to Week 14 Mama Natural I Think I Can, I Think I Can

    The whole gang at National Family Running day.

    I walked my entire pregnancy—even walking over four miles on the day I gave birth. I thought being so active would help me bounce back quickly, so I jumped back into my routine post-baby.

    To my surprise, even casual walks with my baby in the carrier were too much. After one early walk, I struggled to get out of a chair after nursing my baby. Once I got up, I could barely lift my feet off the floor to take a step. My abs were so weak.

    After some research and an at-home test to check for diastasic recti, I went to my doctor. She confirmed I had diastasis recti, a condition in which your abs separate. It’s a complicated condition, because it can be very painful and there are few effective treatments.

    The diagnosis hit me hard, but I resolved not to let the disappointment and frustration defeat me.

    I committed to strengthening exercises. In just a few weeks, I felt stronger and the gap between my muscles had decreased from four fingers to about one and a half. I am now able to run a few times a week (3 to 5 miles), and I lift weights twice a week.

    Before my diagnosis, I had lots of mama guilt about putting myself and my health first, but this experience made me realize that I need to take care of myself so that I can be present and active for my kids. — Nicole M.
