6 months: we introduce complementary foods

The first lure is either mashed vegetables or porridge. It is one-component, homogeneous and should be introduced gradually. The fact that we started giving baby food does not cancel breastfeeding. If you introduced vegetables to the first lure, then it is worth the porridge to enter the second lure (or vice versa).

6 months is the most frequent time when active teething begins. However, they can erupt both earlier and later. In some children, teeth begin to erupt only closer to the year and this is also normal.

8 months: the beginning of socialization

Most healthy babies begin to walk independently by the age of 15 months.

The child knows how to capture small objects, trying to take food from your plate. Maintain his independence, but make sure that the game and food are safe. Fine motor skills are beginning to form. Try to develop it through games.

A baby’s sleep at 10 months can be restless and intermittent. Some children scream and cry in their sleep, Continue reading
