5 months: change the mode of the day

Many children by this age already show an active interest in food. This is a normal formation of nutritional interest, but it does not mean that it is time for the child to administer complementary foods.

In addition, this is an important stage for the development of the maxillofacial apparatus in principle and the formation of the chewing process in particular. Do not delay with this.

Sleep newborn
By one month, the child himself forms a kind of regimen. His periods of wakefulness, food, and sleep are already quite clearly distinguished. The kid is active for about 40-60 minutes, after which he quickly gets tired and falls asleep.
