Child development

What can a baby do in the first month of its life? It seems that nothing special: eating, sleeping, screaming and crying is everything. But this is far from the case. The kid can do a lot. Read – you are very surprised to find that your child is incredibly intelligent at that age.

The physical development of the newborn

In the first month of life, during wakefulness, the baby randomly moves its arms and legs. They are almost always bent at the joints. Lying on the stomach, the child can lift his head for a few seconds.

His reactions are dominated by reflexes. They are inherent in all children, so check their presence with your child. You will definitely find them.

Support. If the baby is put his legs on the table, while supporting his arms, he will straighten the legs for a couple of seconds and then bend again.

Automatic walk.If the child is put his feet on the table, while supporting his arms and slightly tilted forward, he will take 1-2 steps.

Crawling phenomenon. If you put your baby on his tummy and put his hand on his feet, he will push him away and crawl a little.

Sucking reflex. If you put a breast, a bottle or a pacifier in the baby’s mouth, he will immediately start to suck.

Grasp reflex. If you touch the palm of a newborn with your finger, it will firmly squeeze your finger.

It is interesting! Capture the baby at this age is very strong. It is known that he can hold up to 800

Blink reflex. Or it is also called a defensive reflex. When exposed to bright light, a loud sound, the child closes his eyes.

For a long time it was believed that in the first month of life the child does not distinguish objects. But now scientists have proven that this is not the case. In addition, it turned out that newborns most of all love to consider vertical shapes of complex shape.

For example, if you show him a square and a chessboard, he will look at the board longer.

The newborn monitors a moving object without turning its head. If you shake the rattle at a distance of 40-50 cm from his eyes and slowly move her to the side by 20-30 cm, then the child will follow her.

But it will be automatic tracking. It is based on involuntary attention. With the same success, he observes his pens if he drastically changes their position.

Every day the child’s hearing improves. This is due to the fact that the mucous liquid is absorbed in the tympanic cavity.

Starting from the 10th day of life, the newborn reacts to sounds. If you rattle at a distance of 50 cm for 5-10 seconds, the child will listen.

Surprisingly, in the first month of life, children are already able to distinguish sounds, and human speech uses special love from them. In particular, babies are sensitive to the so-called lisping. When they hear it, they feel the love and tenderness of loved ones.

Note. If in the first month you will silently care for the baby, then later it will be difficult to cause visual and auditory concentration.

The child gradually wakes up interest in the objects and people around him. Ripening coordination of movements.

It is interesting! In this period, a person or object that has disappeared from the child’s field of view ceases to exist for him.

By the end of the first month on average:

– the weight of the child is 3 500-4 000 g (increase – 600 g)
– height – 50-55 cm.
