49 Week Old Baby Milestones 👶
How are those baby teeth coming in, mama? Around this time, she may begin to develop her baby molars (the large bottom teeth in the back). And with these new teeth sprouting up, you may find yourself faced with more restless nights and a baby who is more fussy and clingy than usual. Keep her as comfortable as possible during this teething process, and remember to give these natural teething remedies a try. Also be sure to check out this baby teething chart for a better understanding of when (and what order) teeth usually pop up.
With all of her big leaps in cognitive and physical development, may come a few regressions as well. This is totally normal, as she adjusts her understanding of the world around her. With all of the changes she is going through, both cognitively and physically, she may find comfort in staying close to her secure base—and that’s you, mama! Take comfort in the fact that this is just another phase. In the meantime, give her the extra cuddles and one-on-one time she’s craving to keep her feeling safe and secure.
