DEVELOPMENT / children (5 months)

Practical tips

Lower moving toys: push down all hanging high up toys, to which the child tries to reach. It no longer satisfies the observation of interesting objects from afar. He wants to grab them, shake, play around and see up close. If it is impossible to omit the toy to which it stretches, it would be better to remove it altogether.

Children's backpack: Take your child on a walk, taking in the baby backpack. The backpacks, which are fixed in front, suitable for this purpose is better, because the child can see your face when you talk to him.

Put baby on your back: Doing household chores, put the baby in a backpack on his back (as do the Indians).

Talk with your child in a changing environment: Taking it out of the crib, they change, putting in a dish or arranging for the car, talk with your child. Even if he does not understand the exact meaning of words, you will somehow realize that you give him a signal about the upcoming change of scene.

Stretch your hand to the kid: Regardless of where you have to take the baby, stretch your hands to him, saying "Whoa." After some time, the child will begin to reach towards you.


New discoveries

Brilliant pan: Give your child the most brilliant pan, so that he could look into it. Let it revolve, Pat and knock on her from all sides. Kids like toys adults.

In front of the mirror: Hold your baby in front of a large mirror, where it will be visible in all growth. Let him carefully consider your image. Show him where in the mirror of the mother, and where he is.

A few toys in the crib: Leave in the crib a few small toys. The child learns to distinguish them from each other, will choose the most favorite and even be able to notice when in the crib will have a new topic.

Wobbly dolls: At this age children love to discover new and interesting things, and so your child will be happy to play with dolls-dolls. He should drop a toy, as she immediately takes his own standing position. The imagination of the kid strikes this unusual reaction to his actions.

Baby swing: Put the baby in homemade baby swing and start gently rocking. When the swing moves you, say, "goodbye", and when you get back: "Hello". Although the child still does not understand the meaning, he will guess that you use two different words. After some time he finds words that sound different, have different meanings.

Touch the sound: When a child begins to experiment with his voice, you'll notice that it clearly says several sounds: b, m, d, a, and,. Try to repeat them after him. Saying the sounds, place the fingers of the kid on his lips. Let him feel the vibration of your voice and trembling lips.

Rattles: Since it is now assumed that rattles dying away of their age, many children are deprived of opportunities to play with them. This is an unforgivable mistake on the part of parents. Folk wisdom that created this wonderful toy, live to this day. At the age of five months, the child begins to understand the relationship and interaction of the surrounding objects and phenomena. He finds that certain actions that he does, are associated with specific objects. Because the child is inherently some motor skills, including the ability to shake hands, it automatically begins to shake rattle as soon as it hits his hands. The more the child will play with different rattles, the more pleasure he will receive, while developing their motor skills.

Development coordination

"That's what you are a big" Put the baby in a high chair or arrange it so that he could have something to lean on. Lower his hands down and say, "are You big?" Then raise your hands above your head and say, "that's what you're great!" If the answer you will hear laughter, it means that the game he loves.

Fun jumps: Children love to listen to fun songs and rhymes, sitting on the lap of mom or dad. Especially amusing rhymes with "surprise". The child already feels that awaits him at the end of the song, and gives you a sign or a smile or a laugh. This reaction demonstrates the gradual strengthening memory.

Once or twice stood up! The kid already knows how to sit, and maybe you'll find that he's trying to stand up. Remember that before you relax the knees, the child learns to flatten them. If you see that the child is ready to rise to his feet, be sure to keep him, taking armpits. Due to this, the child will be less tired you will not overwork.

Attach the rings to the crib: Attach to the back of the front cots plastic rings. The baby will try to grab them and pull forward.

Down under the hill: Your child probably already knows how to roll over. If the weather permits, go out with him outside and lay in the grass on a blanket in the place where there is a small slope. Place baby on a blanket and holding, help him several times to turn over.

Lifeline: Inflate children's rubber circle. Put it on baby when it sits. If the baby begins to fall, the circle will protect him from injury.

Decision making

The toy in each hand: Give the kid a toy first to one and then the other hand. Soon he will learn to put toys back and forth.

Ball game: Let your child see how you throw the ball up and down. Gradually he will be all the more careful to follow his movements.

The painted face: Face continues to attract the attention of the child. Draw on a piece of fabric face and sew to the inside of the sheets, which he covered. Lifting the sheet, he'll see a smiling face.

Carousel: Now the kid notices the difference between a normal person and skewed. Draw a colored pencil or chalk on solid paper plate with two faces - one side fun, and with another - sad. (You can make holes instead of eyes or change position Pak and turn the plate. What face your child like to watch more?

Endangered the ball: Put against the wall, the chair, on which sits your child, and give him the ball. Let him hit the wall and will wuketits back. Observe whether the child to look for the ball.

Everyday things

Feeding time

Give your child a spoon: while feeding give your child into the hands of the spoon, then he will no longer be attracted to the one that you feed him. Don't expect the baby will start to eat on their own. The fact that he holds a spoon, in itself a great achievement.

Give your child a Cup: Some five-month-old children like to drink from a Cup. That the child has not spilled liquid, place in a plastic Cup at first, only 2-3 drops and let me hold her baby.

Say a body part of a child: they change or bathing the child, call him part of the body and the person to whom you touch.

Frozen face: Talking with your child while dressing, stop for a second and let the kid will see that your face has become completely immobile. Watch to see how he will try to force you to speak again.

Boat in a child's bathtub: If, bathing baby, you lower in the tub boats, it will give your baby a great pleasure. They can easily do choose plastic boxes out of margarine.

The holidays

Gently Pat your baby: If you see that the child is tired, but can not calm down, pick him up, lean-to-shoulder and gently and rhythmically clap on the back. He will relax and rest with you.

A whispered conversation: Try to whisper to the baby's ear a few words. New ways of communication contribute to the establishment of closer contacts between you and the child.

Cuddling: Kids love when mom or dad hug them and shake. Cradling the baby, sing him a lullaby song.
