The regime of the child’s day in 5 months
The first months after birth, the crumb does not have a clear daily routine. To install it is the task of parents. But 5-month-old children have already formed a certain regime, but there are cases when it gets lost, and Mom and Dad need to know how to create comfortable conditions for the development and recreation of their child. How much should the sleeper stay awake and awake? How and what should it feed?
At 5 months, sleep for the child is necessary to restore the strength and energy reserves that he spent on studying the environment and learning about certain skills. The baby’s brain also rests, because every day the baby remembers, recognizes and studies a huge amount of new information. That’s why parents should pay attention to the daily routine and sleep norms of their child.
At five months the child sleeps about 15 hours a day: 10 hours at night, waking up for feeding 2-3 times, and 5 hours in the afternoon.
By five months, the regime of the day for the baby is fully formed. Children get used to sleeping and eat at about the same time, so parents know when they go to bed and when they wake up in the morning for the first feeding. A child, in turn, follows the evening bath, for example, waiting for a hearty dinner, after which he quickly falls asleep and sleeps at night. The schedule is convenient for adults who can plan their time and sleep.
Pediatricians emphasize that the daily routine is not set by the baby, but by the parents, determining the time of sleep, wakefulness and feeding.
