As he moves

In six months, many children, though not all, already know how to sit on their own, without any outside support.At first, they can keep themselves hands resting on the floor, but over time they begin to let go of his hands to occupy them with something more interesting.Six-month

children usually already can easily turn over from back to stomach and back, and some kids using this method, good move in the space, so parents need to closely monitor that the child did not get to where they can be potentially dangerous for himitems.In the same age, the child can begin to crawl - then he will move faster, and probably put in his mouth all that comes his way.

As the child begins to show more interest in small things and details, it is removed from the road, even those things that he had paid no attention.

Note that crawling stage are not all children: the child may instead begin immediately rise to his feet, holding onto furniture and other large,fairly stable items.Initially, these attempts are unsuccessful, but eventually he will learn to walk so far enough unless the parents give him that opportunity.Whatever it was, if your child is six months has not yet crawling, it is by no means a sign of slow development.If everything else was okay, nothing to worry about.


As he sleeps

Most children in six months already sleeping six to eight hours and fall asleep without requiring the presence of their parents with them.If a child in this age of bad sleep, or waking up often, parents can use the method that ball pediatrician Richard Ferber developed.By the method of Ferber child should be put in his bed when he was not yet awake, and not to wait until he falls asleep in your arms.If the baby is crying, do not come to him to calm down, for a certain time (start with, say, one minute), and every day, gradually increase this time interval.This method is not universal and does not help all children, but in many families it works fine.

Because now the child can easily turn over from the back or stomach, do not worry if one night you put him to sleep on his back, and in the morning he woke up lying on his stomach.The risk of sudden infant death syndrome Sudden Infant Death Syndrome - the cause has not yet been found Sudden Infant Death Syndrome - the cause has not yet been found six months is significantly lower than in the first months of life.Nevertheless, while it is not necessary to put the child to bed pillows, stuffed toys, and other items that, if the baby will turn badly, it can block oxygen.


As he eats

If you have not started giving your child solid food, your pediatrician will likely recommend to do this when the baby is six months old.In most cases, it is best to start solid foods introduce solid foods - how not to be mistaken with a choice of products? Introduce solid foods - how not to be mistaken with a choice of products? with grain cereals fortified with iron, prepared with breast milk or infant formula Dairy mixture - selection of the useful power Dairy mixture - selection of useful power .When a child learns to eat a meal, you will gradually be introduced into the diet fruit and vegetables.Include in the menu baby only one new product at a time, and wait a few days before he has to offer something new - this will ensure that the child is not allergic to a particular food, or immediately notice the negative reaction to the new product.Signs of allergy or intolerance can be a rash, diarrhea Diarrhea (diarrhea) - a familiar nuisance Diarrhea (diarrhea) - a familiar nuisance , vomiting, malaise.

If the child refuses the new food, wait a few days and then offer it to him again.Six-month children - a very fickle creatures, and their tastes might change several times a week.

Moreover, at this age the baby is already beginning to eat with a spoon (as long, of course, much of the food at the same time gets you anywhere, but not in his mouth) and hands grabbing food from the plate.


How he communicates

By six months Gulen phase usually ends and begins babbling stage, during which the children begin to pronounce the syllables, words that resemble ordinary speech.First, a child pronounces the same syllables in a row (such as "ma-ma", "pa-pa", "ta-ta", "ba-ba", and so on), and then - usually after six months, although there areexceptions - start joining together two or three different syllables.

six-month child begins to deliberately draw the attention of others, and at the same age he first appears a fear of strangers.However, until this fear is relatively weak, and it is likely that anyone who comes to him with a broad smile, he would take his good friend.

Kids this age really like it when communicate with them in their language, imitating babble - this often gives them their torrent "words" in response to an adult.

Do not forget to read the child and as much as possible to talk to him.As for books, the baby is not well developed motor skills to turn the pages, and it often does not have the patience to look at the pictures for a long time (besides, they still may be too complex for its perception), and listen to the other person's monologue.Nevertheless, it must listen to a speech of adults regularly to his own speech to develop normally, so it can be read and need.What he will interrupt your reading - is perfectly normal;Think of it as the opinion of the cries of the read (in a sense it is so), and listen carefully to the child.
