Your Brilliant Baby in Week 28: Following Items Out of Sight
What your infant learns this week
Week 28 Brain Booster
Yams, peas, peaches, splat, splat, splat. As your baby moves from her first solids and into finger foods, your kitchen (and your patience) may be stretched to its limits. Keep in mind that by dropping each food, Baby is proving to herself that no items ever actually vanish—instead, they all end up on the floor.
If this game of dropsy with food exasperates you, play it instead with toys. It’s fun, baby-style, and an appropriate way to engage your child exactly where her learning lies.
