Today, there are so many offers that parents are often unsure of themselves for the smallest. What is there at all makes sense – and what is too much? What makes sense for a baby or toddler in addition to the many suggestions by family life, depending on the age of your child.
Basically, the rule of thumb was: better In the first year of life at most two planned activities per week. Otherwise you get quickly into stress when you must meet deadlines all the time with your baby. Also a busy daily schedule can disrupt the daily routine and overwhelm the little: little kids love reliable regularity and they need rest and time to the quiet game.
Your baby has siblings, is already provided plenty of variety. Because your small with many activities, if you accompany the older child – about the children’s gymnastics or the music lesson. They’re also impressions, which is expected to handle a baby. Too much anxiety can cause on the day, that the nights are restless. Because children process their impressions at night wearing maternity sandals. Which is not always necessarily is stomach pain when your baby then fusses.
Your child’s personality plays a role. Some children are from a quiet and rather withdrawn by temperament. Others are lively and ready for adventure. It is useful to take into account when you decide what you want to do with their child.
My Tip: In the first months of life it is sufficient, in the week to visit only one meeting or course. Many midwife practices offer for parents with children from the sixth week of life baby massage. This is a good first activity with the baby. Because a baby massage course is quiet and there is not much talk. Still, you can meet mothers side with their peers babies and make new contacts. Next are suitable – if you and your baby have lust for it – for example: a baby swimming lessons, a PEKiP course (short for Prague-parents-child program) or other more active offers. By the way, it is not mandatory the class to go to, if you notice that your baby has a bad day. Even if it turns out that you or your child do not feel comfortable in a course in General, it is better to look for an alternative.
Also, it’s nice if your baby gets occasionally first contact to other babies. Maybe just visit a family with a baby. Of course the little ones still not talking, playing. But you realize that being a small man, which is similar to and enjoy it.
Baby’s Development at 2 Months
The baby at 2 months of life is already able to smile intentionally, for the happiness of the parents. Your mobility is improving and the interaction with what surrounds us is increasing.
The baby at 2 months old is already more active than in the first days of life. However, he still sleeps about 15 hours a day and interacts little. Some babies are more restless, tense, sleep poorly and do not like to suck, while others are more calm and sleep and eat well.
Around this age, your baby likes to play even only for a few minutes. Is still able to smile intentionally, makes garganteiros and moves the body.
THE SLEEP OF BABY AT 2 MONTHS
At this time, the sleep of the baby is still very irregular. About 50% of the babies who are fed with milk adapted sleep all night, unlike that of infants fed breast milk, that they wake up every 2 or 3 hours to nurse.
There are some tips that can help your baby develop good sleep habits:
- Put the baby in his bed when you are drowsy, but still awake;
- Do not let the baby sleep more than 3 hours straight during the day;
- It does not wake the baby to change the diaper during the night;
- Do not let the baby sleep in the bed of the parents;
- Feed the baby for the last time before going to sleep;
- Keep the same routine before going to sleep.
BABY’S DEVELOPMENT AT 2 MONTHS
The development of the baby must always be assessed by the physician assistant or pediatrician. However, at this age it is expected the following goals:
- The baby rotates the head 90 degrees;
- The baby is able to grab the finger of the adult;
- When placed belly-down, the baby is able to lift the chin;
- The baby is able to support the head when it is on the lap;
- The baby reacts to the sound and to the voice of the parents, by turning the head in the direction of the sound.
- The baby smiles and shows satisfaction with moving arms and legs when someone interacts with it;
- The baby is able to emit a few sounds and gesture.
In this phase, the crying of the baby varies according to your needs such as sleep, hunger, pain, frustration or need for physical contact.
The baby at 2 months still has the vision very blurred. However, it is increasingly more interest in objects of bright colors and is able to follow an object with the look.
FEEDING YOUR BABY AT 2 MONTHS
In this age, the feeding of the baby should be exclusively breast milk. The World Health Organization recommends breastfeeding exclusive until 6 months of age, since the breast milk has all the nutrients essential for the baby’s development in addition to functioning as a vaccine. When the baby is fed with breast milk it is not necessary to give him water, since the milk provides all the water needed.
If breastfeeding is not possible, it is recommended to start feeding with milk adapted itself to the age. This type of power should always be recommended by the pediatrician.
In the case of the baby being fed with milk adapted, there is a greater likelihood that he will suffer from cramps. In this case, parents can learn some methods to help relieve the cramps of the baby.
PLAYING WITH THE BABY AT 2 MONTHS
At 2 months, the pleasantries are important to stimulate the baby and increase bonding with parents or caregivers. To do this, parents can:
- Hanging objects or mobiles in the crib or where your baby is during the day, so he can track their movement;
- Looks directly into the eyes of the baby, about 20 to 30 cm from your face, smile, do careras and imitate their facial expression;
- Singing happily to entertain baby;
- Talk a lot with your baby and repeat the sounds he makes;
- Lay the baby face up and move their arms up and down, inside and out;
- Do a relaxing massage after the bath.
These skills are expected to the infants at 2 months of life. However, each baby has its time, and some develop sooner one thing and later another. Parents should not be alarmed, the pediatrician is the only one that will know how to evaluate the development of the baby in the course of the consultations.
