3 months: causes of crying

A fairly active physical development of the baby begins. Remember that the basis for bone health is a sufficient dose of vitamin D3. Since birth, all children are advised to take this vitamin to prevent rickets. Vitamin D is not enough in breast milk.

If the baby is on mixed or artificial feeding, then make sure that he receives daily at least 400 IU of vitamin D from the adapted mixture. If not, then just give him daily vitamin D3 for prophylaxis (prophylactic dose is up to 1000 IU / day).

Child physiology
Although the baby’s movements are still jerky, he is already learning to control his body. He grabs your fingers and tries to pull himself up. Holds his head for several seconds when lying on his stomach. Some children in three weeks can hold their head for 10-15 seconds, turn it from side to side, but then they get tired and lie down again.
Usually, an umbilical wound heals by this age. However, with a sufficiently wide umbilical cord, the umbilical wound can heal even closer to the age of 1 month. This is normal. Most importantly, there should be no purulent discharge or blood from it.

Remember that you need to spread a three-week-old baby on the stomach when he is awake. Sleeping on Continue reading
