Infants


November Newsletter

Our babies are adjusting nicely, it is a joy caring for them.
One goal I have for them, once they hit 6 months, is to start
with food that has small chunks, such as: cooked carrots,
green beans, and bananas. Our kitchen schedule is available
online for you to view or you can bring in your own meals for
your baby. If you decide to bring in your own meal, please put
a date and name on the item. Additionally, please date each
bottle on the cap and bottle itself.

Every week, I do something new with story time and
singing songs; for November we will sing 5 Little Turkeys and
5 Little Ducks, then for story time we will read “Baby First
Thanksgiving” and “Five Silly Turkeys”. As an addition to story
time, we do puppet stories with a cow or pig.

Babies 3 to 6 months will participate in tummy time and
rolling side to side. Babies from 6 months to a year need
exercises that include sitting, rolling over, and standing,

We go outside if the weather permits, so please bring
warmer clothes, hats, gloves, boots, and one piece, zip up
snow suits. Please label every item.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call me.
