When the baby starts to hold his head
The first serious achievement for the baby is the ability to control and keep the head upright. It is good to master this method the baby will be able to by the 3 rd month, when the muscles of the forearms and necks get stronger. To say exactly how much and at what age the child will begin to hold his head impossible. Scientists confidently say that each kid is individual, and therefore development, too.
According to statistics, in 3 months more than 60% of children are able to confidently keep the head in a vertical position (from a minute or more). But there are also two other phenomena: early development and backwardness. In the first case, the baby can raise his head independently at the age of 3 weeks, which indicates a violation in the work of neurology, occasionally occurs as a form of individual development. In the second variant, the reasons for the deviations are greater, from difficult births to loss of weight. Consider all options for the development of a little man.
A child needs several months to master the ability to hold his head without the help of an adult. To begin with, newborns are not at all adapted to the outside world. Do not be an adult, he just did not survive. It is parents who help to know the world, and also monitor the physical development of the newborn.
