3—the number of days it takes for your baby’s poop to change from black and sticky to green or yellow
6—the number of wet diapers your baby should have by day 5 (a sign that your baby is getting enough to eat!)
8—the number of months before your baby can see clearly across a room (eye color also becomes fixed around this age)
9—the number of months before your baby connects words (bye-bye) with gestures (waving)
12—the minimum number of months the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends mothers breastfeed their babies
18—the number of months before the soft spot on the front of your baby’s head closes completely
20—the number of primary teeth (10 upper and 10 lower) most children have by age 3
24—the minimum number of months the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends mothers breastfeed their babies
29—the number of vaccinations (not counting yearly flu shots) children who follow standard immunization schedules will receive by age 6
1,000—the number of words children typically master by age 3
Countless—the number of hours a parent spends worrying about their child; hours better spent cuddling, comforting, singing, reading, and laughing. Cherish these moments.
