The regime of the child’s day in 5 months; sleep, feeding, walking, playing and developing
The regime of the child’s day at 5 months is almost identical to that for which all the regime moments of his life were subordinated in the previous month. The duration of the periods of sleep and wakefulness, the number of feedings remain the same, only the baby himself changes: day by day he becomes more mobile, stronger and more curious.

After reading this schedule, each mother can tailor it to the individual needs of her five-month-old child.
Parents need to prepare the crumbs for the fact that in five months, the first teeth may appear. This significant event can manifest itself in different ways: it does not cause special torments to one of the kids, while others respond to it with fever, constant moods, disorder of the stool and disturbance of the sleep regime. This for some time can cause unpredictable behavior of the uncomfortable crumbs, fraught with non-observance of the usual routine of the day.
Fortunately, such periods are quite short-lived. After teething, Mom should take care of returning the crumbs to the previous regime.
The night sleep of a five-month-old child is usually strong: a tightly-supported baby is able to sleep for about ten hours, not requiring feeding and not disturbing sleeping parents. To achieve this result, the mother must properly organize a day’s rest of her baby, breaking it into three two-hour periods:
- The first sleep is necessary for the baby after a two-hour morning wakefulness. If the weather conditions are favorable, the mother can go with him for a walk, since it is in the morning that sleep in the fresh air will be most favorable for him.
- The second dream of crumbling is at the afternoon. In the warm season and it can be combined with a walk.
- The third time the child should be laid already in the evening hours. At this moment, for a walk with the baby can go dad, who returned from work.
It is not necessary to force the development of the baby, forcing him to perform the actions that the child of a close friend has already mastered. Five-month-old children develop completely individually: today he does not know much, and a week later can master several skills at once, leaving the opponent far behind. The key to the successful development of the baby is a daily exercise with his mother.
For the successful development of crumbs in five months, you can buy several bright toys, equipped with a complex of sound effects. The most useful for him will be:
- Soft toys with sewn squeakers, solid balls, foil inserts;
- Children's drums and multicolored rattles;
- Bright matryoshkas;
- Pupae for the finger theater;
- Sounded soft little animals, singing songs and fairy tales;
- Children's musical instruments (piano, metalophone). A full replacement of such tools can be spoons, a pan with a lid, etc.
The five-month-old child is very smart and inquisitive. He already understands what it means not, correctly responds to words: give, on, go to your mother. Understanding the baby is available in different intonations: with gentle treatment, he will smile, and in response to a grouchy remark can cry.
- You should continue reading books, reviewing pictures. You can show photos of family members and tell about them;
- Telling the child poems and nursery rhyme, it is very useful to stroke, knead and grind his tiny fingers: this massage will help improve blood circulation, activate speech centers and stimulate the functioning of internal organs. To perform the massage, the mother can use a walnut, a ball or a pencil, rolling them between the children's palms or on the outer surface of the hands;
- Wanting to amuse the crumb, you can, having picked up your hands, let him fly by airplane. No less enthusiasm will cause the possibility of jumping on one's lap at home;
- Walking around the apartment with a crumb on his hands, it is necessary to continue to acquaint him with the names of objects in it;
- You can introduce the crumb not only with the different texture of the material, but also with the difference in physical properties, giving him a touch of a piece of ice or a mug with warm tea;
- With the child it is necessary to talk as much as possible, trying to accurately and correctly pronounce the words, remembering that they are postponed in his memory, creating a passive lexical stock.
