DEVELOPMENT / children (3 months)

Practical tips (development of the child in 3 months)

Toys on a cot

In three months the child is striving to use their physical abilities, so he especially likes to hit arms and legs on a variety of subjects. Attach to the crib suspension with different toys (or just use a rope). It is best to take the toys after they are hit start to ring or to swing and rotate. Arrange the baby so that he could reach them first with hands and then feet. If you stick to sling plastic circle painted on its face, it will make the game even more fun.

Take baby for a walk: When you go outside with your child, this is a great opportunity to change the situation for you and for him. Place the child under the tree. He likes to listen to the rustle of leaves and watch the play of light and shadows that occur when a gust of wind. Kid will follow the flight of birds, as well as to hear the noise of cars and planes.

Talk with your child: Continue to talk with the child, using every opportunity. Try to change the tone, speak loud and soft voice, quickly and slowly, laughing or, on the contrary, calming the baby. When his turn to speak, wait until he finishes "the phrase" and then repeat what he "said". The more often you will talk with the child, the more he will "babble". Try to call him by his name. Singing a song or reading a poem, replace the words "baby, baby" in the name of the child.

Invite your guests: Invite some kid. Of course, children are too young to play together, but they will notice each other. At the same time, you will be interested to share experiences with other parents.

Sing baby songs: Singing is one of the most useful lessons that we constantly encourage parents during the first year of a child's life. As the child will grow up, you'll notice that changing the method and conditions under which you usually sing. Cradling a newborn you tight to him and sing a quiet, monotone voice. Three-month baby like best when he sang, leaning close over him, pulling away from him.


Games and activities that we offer for children in the period from birth to three months of age, designed to develop auditory, visual, tactile and motor abilities of the child. Now, when he can use his skills to explore the world, our exercise will help him to show them in practice. During games and practice he will make discoveries, to anticipate events, to develop coordination and to solve new problems.

Make open

Observation of Pets: Give the kid a chance to observe someone from Pets. It is particularly interesting to look at dogs, cats and birds.

New perspectives: Take the child in his arms, up and down, so that he could see your face.

Hang in the arena beads: the arena is a great place for a three-month baby. There is enough space so that he could move and roll over and to be able to put toys next to him. Pull in the arena twine spools. Baby will love to hear how they knock each other when it hurts their feet. (If you don't have an arena, beads made of coils can be hung between two chairs.)

Introduce baby to the rhythm of music: Kid likes to listen to music, especially rhythmic. Let him listen to the melody, where there is a clear rhythm. Try to clap hands to the beat of the music, or do it using wooden spoons, tambourine or two clothespins for linen. Listen to music fast and slow, loud and quiet. After some time the baby learns to notice changes in the rhythm.

The ringing of the bell: Put baby on wrist cuff with a neatly sewn bell. Gently shake the hand of a child, so he looked at her and noticed the bell. Then put this cuff on the other arm and shake again, this time a little stronger. This exercise will help your child to learn better part of his body and develop coordination of eyes and hands.

Secure sandbox: Fill a large bowl or a small bowl of oatmeal. Put on a wide tray or plastic litter (so nothing dirty).

Through this lesson the child learns to enjoy new sensations.

Buzzing bees: the baby more often "Galil" and pronounce the different sounds, try to sing him this song. While singing don't forget to look him in the eye.
You first tell me
As Ju-Ju bee buzzing.
Then I'll tell you
About bee Zhu-Zhu.
Let the kid try to pronounce the sound "W".

Cloth glove: Make a pair of cloth gloves, using for each finger a different type of tissue. Wear gloves on his hands, and let your child touch each finger.

Songs with surprise: Learn a few songs that end in an unexpected way, and sing to their baby. After listening to the song a few times, he will know that in the end it is a surprise. Put the baby on her lap. Shake your knees so that your baby lightly jumped up and down, and sing this song:
Over bumps, the bumps,
On loose tracks.
Holding the baby, spread your knees so that he suddenly slid down.
In the hole - wham!

Swing the baby to the rhythm of funny songs - will fit any melody. At this age, some babies Wake up at night due to the fact that, turned over in his sleep, unable to return to its former position. If you help your child learn to roll over, this will allow him easier to cope with difficulties.
