At 6 weeks old, your baby is about the size of a kidney bean! He is growing very quickly, and his body just keeps on developing. The arteries and veins in the heart are beginning to finish up their development, and all the nerves are present in the baby’s spine. If something touches the baby’s face or mouth, he’ll now move away from it! The baby’s little fingers and toes are starting to grow, now, too. Watch the videos to learn more about your baby’s development!
