From the first days of birth, babies delight us with their achievements. Now the baby has kept his eyes on his mother’s face for a couple of seconds, confidently holds the head and back, firmly grabs the rattle, turns over from the back to the stomach and vice versa, pulls up, firmly clutching his fingers, and tries to sit down.
Here I will stop in more detail. As for me, the seat is a very important stage in the lives of children and their parents.
Everything has its time
Many of my mom’s acquaintances after a few weeks after the birth of children begin to suffer – they say, the baby lies and sleeps, and you want so much to sit like your youngest, or run like the older one.
I, in turn, smile and advise to enjoy the moment, because children grow up very quickly. And with physical growth, their possibilities of learning about the world are growing. And this, so wonderful process for them, so troublesome for parents.
Sit down in half a year
The eldest daughter – the very calm. When she was 3 months old, I put a magazine next to her, where on the first page was a large photo of a baby, and she lay for a long time and looked at it. She didn’t make any special attempts to turn around and make any attempts to sit down as soon as possible.
Somewhere in half a year, after a routine visit to the doctor, I received advice that the child could already be planted in pillows. Why do this? It turns out to protect the kids. We put a pad under the back, on the sides and help to sit down.
I had a horseshoe feeding pillow. It was very useful not only for feeding, but also for securing a daughter. In this case, the pillows help the baby to maintain balance.
It seemed to me then that this action was violence. After reading the subject literature came to the conclusion that no. By the age of six months, it is already safe to help the child sit down and secure it with pillows. With balance, they are still not very, often overwhelmed.
But the younger one is much faster. She did not need help, but, on the contrary, restrained her in every way. But when she sat down, my peace was completely lost for several months. Only an eye and an eye was needed.
The fact is that when children look at the world around us in a new plane, they try to know him differently. You have to agree, because after sitting you can try to crawl somewhere far away, reach out or even grab onto something and pull yourself up.
Therefore, dear mummies, when your children start to sit, be even more careful and careful. If you sat the child on the couch, then please, do not leave the room and do not leave the child unattended even for half a minute.
And when your kids sat down, how did they behave? Share stories in the comments!
