Week 21

It’s week 21 and your little one still has a lot of weight to gain because they need to fill out their very wrinkly skin. By the time your baby is born, he or she will be perfectly plump and filled out, complete with adorable chubby cheeks. Their cute eyebrows have also developed now, giving their face much more expression.

Interesting fact: The taste of the amniotic fluid that your little one is drinking daily differs depending on what you’ve eaten. And taste won’t be lost on them as they have very developed taste buds already. In fact, it has been noted that babies who were exposed to certain tastes in the womb through the amniotic fluid were more willing to eat foods with that same taste when it came to weaning stage (good time to eat plenty of fruit & veg)!
