Day regimen for an 8-month-old baby
A significant point in a child’s life up to a year is the age of 8 months. From this moment the baby will become more active both physically and socially. For proper development, the perfect regimen will be the regime of the day. Therefore, young parents need to know certain pediatric norms: how much a baby has to sleep, eat, walk. In addition, it is important to understand how and what to do with an 8-month-old baby, so as not to tire him, but not to get bored.
At the age of 8 months, the baby becomes more curious and studies the world with pleasure. Sufficient sleep is essential for good health, new discoveries and achievements. At night, the child sleeps about 8 hours, and daytime rest is divided into two stages – for 1.5-2 hours each. A variant of the norm is one day’s sleep, but in this case its duration is not less than 4 hours. In total, the baby sleeps 11-13 hours a day.
At 8 months of age, more than half the children are able to sleep through the night. If the baby is worried about frequent waking up, you need to make sure that this is not the fault of the parents. A well-fed and clean child, sleeping in a comfortable comfortable bed in a ventilated room, sleep is often long and quiet.
Babies, mothers who practice breastfeeding on demand, can wake up to 5-7 times per night. Often such children do not know how to fall asleep without mother’s milk, so when they go into a new cycle of sleep they necessarily need a mother. However, many women argue that they have adapted to this situation by simply providing the child with free access to the breast, putting him at night next to him.
