When can I plant a girl (will harm from an early sitting up?)
For a child who has learned to sit, an amazing world opens! In an upright position, he can see the environment in a new way, take objects with his hands, independently occupy himself. Adults look forward to this stage in the development of the baby. Parents of daughters very often ask a question to experienced mothers and pediatricians, (and, by the way, correctly do), in how many months you can start to sit girls, because their physical development is different from the development of boys.
in 6 months are able to sit with the support of an adult, in 7 they can hold the backright vertically independently, in 8 – it is easy to sit down, on all fours; or lying down;
Pediatricians believe that normally developing girls at 6 months are able to sit with the support of an adult, in 7 they can hold the backright vertically independently, in 8 – it is easy to sit down, on all fours; or lying down.
At the age of six months, the muscles of the back and abdominal muscles are already well strengthened in children. This age is defined by children’s doctors as a time when girls can be seated. But deviations for a month and a half are also considered the norm.
Up to 6 months is not recommended to sit down artificially a girl.
However, if a four-month-old child independently takes a semi-sitting position during games or exercises, it can be left in this posture for a short time. It is only necessary to ensure that during the day the girl is not more than an hour. Parents should protect the place where the daughter sits on all sides.
If a girl who has not yet turned 6 months old, has learned to sit with a support, she will increasingly occupy this position. The child will quickly understand that it is so much more interesting to play and observe what is happening around. It is useless and wrong in this situation to put the girl in a horizontal position: she immediately takes the pose she chooses herself. In addition, it can slow the child’s natural development. If the daughter is sitting for a long time, it should be distracted with a toy or held on your hands.
At first, the girl will sit uncertainly, collapsing on her side. Do not worry about it and constantly correct it. As soon as the muscles of the child get stronger, he will sit more evenly. Do not cover the baby with pillows or rollers from the blanket. In this case, the child will find it difficult to change his posture if he becomes tired.
What should mom and dad do if the seven-to-eight-month-old daughter can not sit?
The time has already come when, without fear, you can put a girl at least half-sitting, for example, on a chair or in a stroller, but the child can not sit in any way. Understand, you can not force the baby to take a pose that is not comfortable for her. To help the child, it is necessary to perform with it a strengthening exercise, which is especially useful for weak and premature girls.
Strengthen the back muscles will help simple exercises that you need to perform on a hard surface: the floor or changing table.
- Put the girl on her stomach so that her legs rest on the adult's body. Raise the child, holding it with one hand under the shin, and the other - under the breast. The back and buttocks of the girl must be strained at the same time. After a few seconds, put the baby and repeat the exercise again.
- During daily air baths lay the girl on the belly, placing a bright object in front of her to urge to reach for him. This will perfectly strengthen the muscles of the back and the press and prepare the child for the position; You can buy small rings and hang them over a cot. The girl will try to reach for them, and grabbing, will try to sit down. At the age of 7-8 months, the baby can be planted on her knees for a few minutes a day.
- The girl lying on her back, reach forefingers. When she clings to them, she will try to sit down. The back of the baby should come off the surface, while the abdominal muscles will stiffen. In this position, the child should be held for 20 seconds, and then returned to the horizontal position.
