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. On the recommendation of WHO, the introduction of complementary foods for children who are both breast-feeding and artificial feeding is recommended from 6 months.

The baby can play for a long time, lying on his stomach. He goes through the toys that are in his reach, manipulates them. Many five-month-olds are already trying to get on all fours.

The process of teething of all 20 primary teeth is ending closer to 2-2.5 years. Typical symptoms of teething are anxiety and moodiness of the child, increased salivation, a slight increase in temperature (not more than 38.0 C), refusal of solid food, chewing of fingers, a small rash around the mouth.

Do not use dental gels containing lidocaine for pain relief.
