What will happen to the child?
By the third week your baby has finally become a rosy-cheeked toddler, whom you used to see in the picture.Usually by the time the kids fully restore their weight that they lose in the first days of their lives, their skin is pink, her wrinkles smoothed, rounded cheeks.
In addition, the child spends less time in sleep and wakefulness during periods of an interest in what is happening around him.He begins to listen to the sounds, look at the people approached him.
By this time, children gradually reduced hypertonicity of muscles, so their movements become less sharp and chaotic, and become more orderly and smooth.If the child lay on his tummy, he tried to lift his head.Some kids can hold the head a few seconds, and even try to turn in the direction from which shall hear my mother's voice.
As the child begins to be more interested to explore the world around us, it can be overloaded with different impressions.Overtired baby can start to act up, nervous, conveying
For example, a baby simply take the hand, squeeze, shake - and he calms down.Some babies calm down while lying in bed when her mother stroking them or tummy holding the handle.But there are kids who do not work - so kids need to calm or to cry (but no more than 1 - 2 minutes), or a pacifier.Pacifier and irreplaceable for babies who sleep badly.
Children love to suck the nipples and they need to meet the sucking reflex (especially the formula-fed infants).So do not give in to the prejudices that the nipple - it's bad!And do not prevent your child tries to suck your finger.Believe me, in a year - half your kid himself to quit this habit, and it will take its toll on his psyche.And if he is in infancy is constantly crying, then this could be a bunch of negative consequences.
Moreover, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends the use of a pacifier at bedtime, when a child tries to go to sleep and during sleep, arguing that the use of pacifiers reduces the risk of SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome).
