Other kids grow faster … Well, who came up with it? Your kids grow up – you do not have time to blink an eye. Every day, the new skill. And our parental task is to help develop new skills in a timely manner and without prejudice to the health of the baby.
I have already shared with you, my dear, my experience in how and when the children start to roll over, in how many months they sit down. Today I want to tell you how I taught my babies to sit down. What exercises conducted with them. I just want to add that each child develops in its own way, each is individual.
I started to teach my children to sit down with 5 months. I don’t have to start earlier, because the muscles and the spine are not quite strong yet. You should not plant the baby without preparation. To start, make him a light massage. Pound back and sacrum, legs and handles. After that, lay the baby on a hard surface covered with a clean diaper or bedcover.
Stretch out your hands to the baby, give him a tighter hold on your fingers. Now you can slowly pull up your baby to yourself. Release one arm and support the baby under the back. Hold him in this position for one or two minutes. Carefully supporting the head of the baby, lower it to the surface. Allow time for rest before repeating the exercise again.
Another exercise that should be done with a child is to train the muscles of the neck. More often lay out your child’s tummy on your lap. Let his palms rest on the floor. Nearby, place bright toys to which the kid will reach. At the same time, swing the child back and forth a little bit. So you additionally train his vestibular apparatus.
It is better to conduct such classes when the baby is full, healthy and does not want to sleep. No need to force a child if he stubbornly does not want to sit. Do not worry – everything has its time. Sometimes kids sit for about 8 months, or when they themselves are ready for it. And most importantly – by training the baby, remove everything about which it can hit in the fall. And be prepared, because the sitting position is not very stable for the crumbs.
You can often hear that the early landing of girls in the future is fraught with a bend of the uterus. I hasten to express my disagreement with this statement. When I first became the mother of a charming girl, I read a lot of articles on this subject. Opinions of the authors were completely opposite. Which of them to believe?
I read books on pediatrics and gynecology. And she did not find in any medical reference book a hint that the bend of the uterus is a consequence of early disembarkation. I heard confirmation of my conclusions from the mouth of Dr. Komarovsky. From all the above, we can conclude: regardless of the sex of the child, you need to plant him only when he wants it.
Do you agree with my opinion? Share your experience.
