Babies this age cannot obey or disobey parents. Their minds are not developed enough for them to know right from wrong. However, they may do things that are unsafe or that you think are wrong. For the next year or so, we need to help baby learn how to behave. Discipline really means teaching, not punishing.
Food habits are usually formed during childhood. If a variety of foods are offered in the early years, children will learn to eat a variety of foods throughout life. Babies copy their parents, brothers, and sisters. If baby sees her family eating healthy foods, she probably will too.
Teething often begins during the sixth month. Baby may drool more than usual and be uncomfortable and fussy. Cold teething rings and teething biscuits can soothe sore gums.
