Child development in 5 months
At five months the pace of physical development is slightly reduced, but the child’s social and emotional development is becoming more active.
By the fifth month of life, a child almost doubles in weight relative to the weight at birth.
For the fifth month of life, the baby collects about 700 grams, and for the entire period from birth to 5 months 3,500-3,700 grams.
The growth of the child for the fifth month of life increases by 2-2.5 cm, and for the entire period by 13-14 cm.
The circumference of the head for this month increases by 1.5 cm, and the circumference of the chest by 2 cm.
At the fifth month of life, the baby sleeps about 14-16 hours a day, while the duration of night sleep is 9-10 hours.
By the age of five months, some babies are starting to cut their first teeth, so it’s good to keep toys that you can chew on. Also in the pharmacy you can buy special products that reduce pain and inflammation during teething. Only before use, be sure to read the instructions, or even better consult with the pediatrician.
Neuropsychological development of the child in the fifth month
The baby grows up, grows up, he already knows his and other people clearly, and he chooses to whom to go to the pens, but to whom not.
The child begins to distinguish the intonation of the voice better and better, so he begins to smile at the tender, benevolent treatment, and when he hears an angry, threatening voice, he can burst into tears.
