The physical and intellectual development of babies from 5 to 6 months old
1. Improved language skills
This month's baby, as long as he is not sleeping, he will keep "talking" in his mouth. Although mom and dad can't understand what the baby is saying, they can still feel what the baby is saying. Sometimes the baby will make a sound like "click...Da...Mom" while playing with the toy in his hand, as if he was talking to himself. Sometimes the mother holds the little cloth bear to play with the baby, the baby will clap her hands, and scream "oh" and "oh" in his mouth, showing great interest in the little cloth bear. If the mother claps her hands to call the baby's name, the baby will also open her little hand, screaming "Ah" and "Oh" in her mouth, as if responding to her mother. When the father asks the baby "Where is the mother?" the baby will look at the mother, with a happy expression on his face. Sometimes the baby pouted his own little mouth, and bubbles popped out of his mouth. All this shows that the baby's language ability has been greatly improved.
2. Start to learn to grasp things
The 6-month-old baby has more flexible eyes. As long as the thing in front of you, no matter what it is, you can grab it with two small hands at the same time. If it is a small ball, the baby's small hand will roll slowly and repeatedly with the small ball. Go and catch until you catch it. However, the baby still doesn't know how to pinch things with the tips of his fingers, so he can only grasp bluntly with the palm of his hand and all his fingers. The baby can pass a block to the left hand, and then take the second block with the right hand. Babies can also feed themselves, not only can they eat their fingers, but they can also deliver what they are holding into their mouths.
Three, have the ability to kick
If the mother puts the full-fed baby on the bed, the baby is no longer willing to lie down obediently as before. Instead, the body will rise to the top and will quickly turn from the supine position to the side lying position. Turn the side lying position to the prone position. After the baby turns to the prone position, his limbs move randomly and begin to kick. If the mother puts her palm against the baby's feet, the baby's body can move forward with the kick.
Fourth, like to sit or jump
The baby no longer likes to lie down, as long as he holds the baby's hand, the baby wants to sit up, and can sit briefly for about half a minute under the support of the mother's arms. However, the baby's body cannot be straight at this time, and the back is still bent. If the mother supports the baby to stand up, the baby's feet are basically able to bear his own weight, but the knees are still bent, like playing a seesaw, and the baby's legs appear stronger when he is jumping.
5. Like to chew on little feet
The baby often lay there leisurely and contentedly, raising his legs, and then using his little hands to bring his little feet to his mouth. Babies love to hug their little feet even when they are breastfeeding.
Six, begin to recognize students
Babies can recognize familiar people and smile at them, but some babies begin to recognize the birth visibly, showing fear of strangers, not letting strangers hold them, and are also afraid of strange environments. If the baby does not go well and has a strong temper, he will cry for a long time, refuse to eat, and even refuse to be hugged by someone close to him, and only let his parents hold him. But if you use food, toys, play outdoors and other methods to tempt your baby, your baby will still be very happy to let you hold it. At this time, the baby already has a personality, some babies just don't let strangers hold them; and some babies smile when they see people they don’t know.
Seven, feelings are getting richer and richer
The baby's mood changes very quickly. He cried a lot just now, and in a blink of an eye he smiled so much. When the mother left, the baby's mouth curled up and seemed to cry, or started to cry. If the toy in his hand is taken away, the baby will cry in horror, as if being hurt. When the baby hears the mother’s gentle and kind words, he opens his mouth and giggles, and gathers his hands to his chest, like clapping. If the mother hides in a place where the baby can't see and shouts the baby's name, the baby will look around for the source of the sound, and smile happily when she finds it.
Eight, have preliminary observation and understanding
When babies are 6 months old, they have their own ability to observe and understand things around them, and they seem to see the faces of adults too. Babies can also smile back with the kind smiles and words of outsiders. When they see a serious expression, they will be anxiously stuck in their mother's arms and dare not look at it. When the mother picks up the bottle and shakes it towards the baby, the baby knows that the mother is going to feed, so she can't wait to open her mouth. The baby can also understand some words that are frequently used repeatedly. A baby will also show his love to someone close to him. When his father or mother is holding him, he will touch his father's face with his little hands, pull his ears, and open his mouth to "bite" his father's face.
Nine, can already remember the sound
If the baby of this month starts crying at night, even if the light is not turned on, as long as the mother speaks to the baby, the crying will stop. If you change your personal conversation, your baby will cry harder. This shows that this month's baby already has keen hearing and memory of the sounds he hears, especially in the mother.
Babies from 5 to 6 months of age begin to slow down in their growth rate. It is especially obvious that the weight that used to gain rapidly is now showing a tendency to grow slowly. Weight gain is up to 10 grams per month, and height is up to 1 cm. Although the baby's physical growth is not obvious, but its intelligence level has improved rapidly, which is also one of the more obvious characteristics of this month's baby during the entire development process.
