The correct development of a child in 6 months isa complex set of measures, constant communication with the baby, which allows him to correctly understand the world that surrounds him. At this time, the baby already knows how to turn over, sit down, sit, keeping a flat back. The kid should already recognize the sounds, the taste of food, take his own food from the spoon with his lips, drink from the mug that the adult keeps.
The right menu and daily routine
At six months old the baby is ready for his firstfamiliarity with the "adult" food. He is now interested in everything, so he often seeks to take from Mom's plate a vending piece and send it to his mouth. But you can not give everything to a kid right now, so your development calendar for this time should be quite strict with regard to complementary foods. It is very important that the development calendar contains the correct daily routine for the baby. In this case, it is not necessary to drive the child into some strict certain limits, since the time for feeding and sleeping for everyone can vary slightly. Do not follow clearly all the advice of grandmothers and moms, try to find out for yourself what is right for your baby, consult with an observant physician. Among the mandatory requirements that must be met are:
- The dream of the baby should always begin in one and thatsame time. Choose the time when the child starts to sleep, usually it's 8-9 pm, and put him to bed. It is desirable that parents themselves go to bed at this time, so the child will soon get used to the regime;
- Up to one year of the baby it is not necessary to wake up very early, if he has a need for a morning sleep, then let him lie down in a crib a couple of "after-hours" hours;
- For a baby at the age of six months it is best to sleep in the open air, the time of such daily walks should be from two hours;
- Teach your child that the day should begin andend with water procedures, he should understand that hygiene is mandatory. Do not make it do it by force, it's better to make a cheerful play out of washing.
Begin to develop a child
The development of a six-month-old baby is verya complex and fascinating period during which a small and helpless little man gradually becomes more independent, he begins to realize not only himself, but also the world around him, to recognize faces, to memorize the names of objects, although it is not yet possible to pronounce them normally. Now for the kid everything is interesting, beginning from the pens and finishing with surrounding world during walk. Children in six months open themselves to the greatest opportunities, but at this time they learn the world mainly to the touch. Therefore, do not prevent the baby from touching everything he reaches, but make sure that he does not harm himself. If the baby wants to touch sharp or hot objects, do not shout at him, as this you only create complexes, but gently and confidently take his pen away, speak with him soothingly. The fact is that children at this age are already beginning to discern a caressing and strict tone. The kid at this time is interested in everything, so when you carry it, for example, swim, hold it with a pen on the wall, a hanger, clothes, tiles. In bathing bath you can add a special foam for bathing, toys. The development calendar should include games, during which the kid will have the opportunity not only to touch objects, learning them, but also to relate them to a certain set of sounds, in a word. Give the child an item and immediately say its name. So you can repeat several times in a row, changing the items so that the kid not only remembered what they felt, but also developed their memory. Begin to train the handles, the general physical condition For a baby six months, you need to start training pens and legs, which will help an interesting game. This is an excellent development of coordination and motor skills. For pens we begin to learn such movements:
- "The chicken drinks water." These are the movements of the hands, when the fingers are folded in the form of a bird's beak, the hands are rhythmically leaning forward and backward;
- "Stroking kitten" - light, smooth movements, as if you iron a small kitten;
- "Krasim fence" - these are simple movements of the hand brush to the right and left, up and down.
All such exercises must be performed, first takingthe baby's hands in his, gently directing him. Then the child begins to repeat them by himself, copying your movements. This will allow you to properly train handles and fingers, to begin the correct physical development. For the legs, which are not yet very well kept for the baby, correct movements for coordination are also necessary. The child starts to try to rise, he actively creeps, strongly strikes with legs. Encourage these activities, if the kid is trying to get up on his own, support him, but do not let go yet! At six months the child begins to actively move, now he, lying on his back or tummy, begins to bend, feel his legs. He makes his first attempts to sit for exactly three to ten minutes, realizes the heaviness of his body. Be sure to include in your calendar for the development of your baby unpretentious physical exercises in the form of a game, this will allow the baby to start correctly to keep not only the head, but also the body, but this does not mean that he will start walking in the coming weeks, but the correct direction is already laid! Social contact and speech development of the baby The calendar for the development of the six-month-old baby is very rich, it is at this time that he learns to not only recognize and recognize the faces of others, but also communicate correctly with them. The vocabulary of the child is still very poor, he begins to add words from the sounds independently, for example, "g-gee", "hoo-go" and the like. Now for the baby is very important constant communication, he is already able to recognize facial expressions, to distinguish a tender voice from strict. He begins to be interested in bright toys and various sounds, which he enthusiastically begins to imitate. At this time, it is necessary to constantly communicate with the child, the development calendar must necessarily contain not only feeding, but also constant games, communication, development of speech. Talk to the baby, read to him aloud the tales and sing songs, the child already distinguishes words well, he gradually begins to repeat them, to understand when various combinations of sounds are used in life. It is desirable that the baby is surrounded not only by adults, it is very useful to start his communication with other children. To gradually accustom the child to society, he must quietly overcome his fear of strangers.
What games are suitable for general development in 6 months?
A baby at the age of six months is already enoughis active to start playing with parents. But these games are still very original, it is more the child's attempt to learn how to establish contact with others. So what can you play with the baby, who turned six months old? Children are very fond of bright toys that make loud noises, so it is recommended at this time to buy exactly such "sounding" toys, with which the baby begins his communication. Most children like to stretch toys to others, take them back, while they try to make their first sounds resembling words. Try playing with the child in the game "Hat", if he has already started to slowly recognize faces. This game is very simple, but it helps the kid to develop memory and logic. It consists in the following: Mom or Dad, sitting in front of the baby, put on or take off their hat, while the appearance for the child changes a lot. If your baby started to cry, frightened of a stranger, then do not insist, try this game when he grows up a little. But in most cases, children like the game, they begin to take off and put on various hats and hats. In this case, not only develops memory, but also motor skills, the baby learns to properly hold soft objects in his hands. The child gradually understands the immutability of certain objects and surrounding people, ceases to be afraid of strangers, acquires social skills, is aware of the cause and effect.
When should I contact a specialist?
It is advisable to consult a specialist if the childat the age of six months is indifferent to communication, feeding, games, not to strive to communicate, which a month does not make any progress in development. Particular concern should be raised by the fact that if the handles and legs, facial muscles begin to twitch and such seizures are repeated quite often. Attentions of the doctor require sleep disturbances, when the child looks clearly not slept or is always sleepy, apathetic. The age of six months is one of the most important stages in which a child begins to slowly learn this world through touch, hearing, sight. He starts not only to see, but also to learn objects, to distinguish them from each other, to distinguish voices, to respond to facial expressions, to determine the sources of sounds. This is a difficult, but very exciting time, when the kid climbs another small, but such an important step on his long journey to the knowledge of the world around him. And the task of parents at this age is to help the baby to develop comprehensively, to learn how to react properly to the surrounding environment.
