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.

They stretch their arms, pull up and bend their knees. Many people get up on all fours by the end of the month and swing back and forth. This is an excellent preparation for crawling.

This time is not enough for pain relief, but with frequent use of dental gel, the child swallows too much of it. This can lead to convulsions, severe brain damage, as well as heart problems and even Continue reading

How body and soul change during pregnancy

From the first day of pregnancy, your body concentrates on new tasks: the first weeks and months are characterized by adaptation to a new situation and emotional duality. You are going through a time of restructuring of the body, when the whole system is tuned for maximum physical performance.

You look, as before, the tummy has not yet rounded and the rest of life goes on. The fact that your body is not in its usual state, you yourself will feel much more distinctly: your chest becomes much more sensitive and tense, you will become more tired, and in the morning everything will last twice as long. Your heart will beat faster, sometimes you will breathe more often, and your emotions will be diametrically opposite. Many women are not sure whether they are doing everything right and whether they are really ready for their new task. These thoughts are important for parents and are the first part of the initiation of communication. Continue reading
