7 months: teeth are cut

2 months: infancy

The sleep is still quite long, but the waking time is increased to 1-1.5 hours. It is important to learn to understand when a child is tired and at the first signs of fatigue try to put him to bed. The fact is that he quickly overworkes and then cannot fall asleep because of this. Many mothers notice the optimal waking time of the child, after which it is easiest to put him to bed.

The nutritional volume of children is approximately 1/5 of their weight. Frequent attachments to the chest are still relevant for this age, but many children themselves already create a certain sleep-meal-wake regimen.
