Your baby

Now your baby can hear and may be able to recognise you and your partner's voice, some experts think it may be beneficial to sing or play music to her. The cells which develop conscious thought are now developing too. The connections between your baby's brain are also developing, especially those that are responsible for sensations, emotional, perception and thinking. This means that your baby will be starting to remember things and learn from her repeated experiences in the womb.
