Starting with this week, your baby will gain weight at a fast pace, due to the layers of brown fat that fill his body shapes. These layers will increase every week from now on and will help him keep warm.

He starts recognizing your voice and it's known that babies do find comfort at the sound of it. Therefore, don't hesitate talking to your baby!

Time to think about that hospital bag. Check out our article on the hospital bag for more inspiration.
