What should a child be able to do in 8 months
A newborn baby is a blank piece of paper that fills throughout life. In the first years, parents are engaged in this filling. Therefore it is very important to know what and when to do, what to look for, so that the baby grows healthy and full. Consider how the development of the child should be in 8 months.
During this period of life the child develops in all directions:
It is 8 months – the time when the foundation is laid for further development of speech, sensory organs, sensory apparatus and motility. But not all babies are the same, so the development of one baby can differ from the other (someone is behind, someone is ahead). Some can already speak some words, some are able to take the first steps, someone smiles the first teeth. But do not despair if your baby still does not have it in the eighth month of life. All the achievements ahead, the main thing, is to help the child in his development.
The intensive growth that was observed in the previous months slows down a bit. This is due to increased activity. The weight of the baby increases by about 0.5 kg, and the height – up to 2 cm. But these indicators are only for orientation (there may be deviations from the norm). The weight and height of each child increases in different ways. For example, boys grow faster than girls. If a child loses weight and does not gain weight, then it is necessary to consult a pediatrician.
