Motor development

Sleeping on the abdomen is the basis of the motor development of the baby, so we seek to see comfortable lying on the abdomen since the days of the first child. While lying down on the stomach, the child should move his head from side to side. If the child does not receive the appropriate support, the head drops towards the back.
When the baby is sleeping on his or her stomach, he can move a few centimeters by reflex movements, sometimes you can find him waking up on the other side of the bed.
The movements of the child’s primary limbs are random and asymmetrical. The child close his hands from his eyes and mouth, his hands are often blocked and he can hold the thing that enters the palm of his hand, but he cannot hold it for a long time.
At the end of the first month the child can raise his head a few centimeters and move it from side to side. The child also begins to roll to the side of the lying position on the back.

3. The baby can cry to attract parents’ attention or to express discomfort.
4. The child can recognize the characteristics of his parents and prefer them to others.

Development of senses and language

• The child hears while he is still in his mother’s womb. After birth, he can distinguish familiar sounds, such as the mother’s voice. Most children relax when the mother’s voice is heard, so it is recommended to talk to them and sing to them. The child also tries to focus on who is talking to him.
• In the first month the child uses non-verbal communication to express himself. By a combination of limb movements, different facial expressions and forms of crying the child can convey different messages.
• Except for crying, the child can also hear different sounds but still cannot speak. He does not understand what is being said to him, but he can distinguish the tone of voice and knows part of the message to be conveyed to him.
• The child can recognize the smell of his mother and respond by different facial expressions to the taste and smells that reveal to her.
• Until the age of one month the child can focus on objects that are about 20 cm from his face. He can also track objects moving in front of his face for a few centimeters. In general, the child’s looks look “mobile” and sometimes even look like a baby.
