What can a child?
- babbles as if to say;
- understands and fulfills the requests such as "give me your hand," "head tilt";
- plays games with the performance of simple actions ( "Ladushki"), dancing;
- experiencing intense fear when parting with his mother;
- clearly divides people into "us" and "them";
- frightened by sudden, unexpected sounds (vacuum cleaner, bell, dog barking);
- own stands and walks in the support;
- sits alone;
- begins to actively crawl;
- can bite off and chew soft foods;
- goes with mashed powdered food;
- calmly accepts planting pot.
With 8 months passes the next stage of action with objects - a stage "Related" action.The kid already knows how to relate the subject to a certain place in space.He puts and takes the items to be placed on a certain place, stringing large objects, move objects in a certain direction, closes the box, the subject uses as a weapon.
have baby 8 months appear finer finger movements - let him boxes of different shapes.A child can independently remove and cover them with the help of an adult to close.You can offer crumbs to get toys from the bag, sewn from colorful fabrics and fold back.
on new transition speech understanding and dialogue with adults.Now the baby is well aware of and comply with such a request as "let the handle", "stretch your legs", "head tilt", "Give a toy."A special pleasure for him nursery rhymes and games, where you have to perform any actions unpretentious: clap his hands, shaking his head, swing handles, feet stomping.
child begins to show an adult is to reach what he wants, he wants to touch.It can be a long time to look out the window at passing cars or falling snowflakes.Aggravates the differences in the perception of others.In unfamiliar surroundings without a mother a child feels fear, sometimes close to panic.This is not a regression, and progress in development.
kid already so emotionally mature that perfectly separates "own" and "alien", "familiar" and "unfamiliar."The concern of parents should cause just not the presence and absence of such fears, or at least, negative emotions in relation to strangers - it speaks of a certain delay in mental development (not to be confused with medical diagnosis!) Or the establishment of a higher "greenhouse"conditions for the child.
task of parents - to teach the baby to observe the correct distance in relation to outsiders, so that he learned not to be afraid and felt confident, but at the same time knew that blindly trust everyone too, not worth it.
At this age, the child is afraid of sharp, unexpected sounds.It is also a new step - in the conscious perception of the baby is now at the same time gets a lot of different factors.Introduce your child to such "noisy" domestic helpers, like a vacuum cleaner, kitchen appliances, washing machine - let them listen to the sound, explain why they are needed.
If the child continues to be afraid of them, turn out less often.INCLUDING, take a moment crumbs - hug, kiss, tell me what you see there and how scary it, but are forced to work with a frightening device.Scold the kid for his fear in any case can not be - a little man will feel doubly abandoned!
the end 8 months children confidently crawling, not necessarily forward on all fours.There are kids who prefer to crawl on her ass or legs forward, moving backwards or sideways.All this - the variants of the norm, and not be afraid.Encourage your baby to crawl - it contributes to the development of the muscular system, as well as the proper formation of binocular vision, is the prevention of myopia, improves the coordination of movements.
8 months - a time when many parents put the child in the "walkers."Of course, this is a great invention ... for parents.And for the baby are unlikely.His immature muscle and bone systems receive excessive load, therefore it is necessary to limit the stay crumbs walker in an hour and a half a day.
order not to bend permanently, better buy a "harness" in which the baby itself will adjust when walking.And when fall to the floor and relax.To train the body and the baby learning to walk, you need a daily massage and gymnastics.Some movements kid can and will be happy to repeat for adults.And somewhere he'll need your help.
If a child has 4 teeth, it's time to move on to puree food for finely chopped.Let's crumbs pieces of soft foods - cookies, fruits, cucumbers, carrots, potatoes, so that he could train in biting and chewing.
can start potty training.If the kid is sitting confidently alighting on his pot immediately after sleep or after a meal.If a child is categorically refuses to sit on the pot, do not insist, he will master this skill later, around 1.5 years.If a toddler sitting on a pot willingly, do not keep it on it more than 10 minutes, even if nothing has happened.If the result was positive, praise the child.Do not give toys sitting on the pot child, so as not to distract him.
What to do
Crawling - the most important stage of child development .The baby has learned himself to sit, stand, walk, first he has to get up on all fours.Omitting or changing the order of the major movements is an occasion to reflect on the presence of functional disorders of the nervous system, imbalance of hemispheric coordination functions.By virtue of the child's body plasticity of these violations can go by themselves.And may remain and haunt problems with reading and writing, for example.
Crawl - it is also a natural exercise that trains all the muscles of the body.Not enough trained toddler, early rising, often gets crooked legs, deformed chest skewed spine.
Besides walking requires tighter control over the body, to which the brain and the nervous system may not yet be ready.In the future, it is fraught with a lack of mobility of the muscular system, different bodily clamps and, as a consequence, psychosomatic diseases, hypertension, etc.
So, what can we do to better pipsqueak crawled?Climb on the knees and elbows help following exercise in the bath: put the baby belly to the bottom and gradually fill the bath water.Water will be raising a child under the tummy, making up.Be very careful with that pipsqueak not swallowed water and was not afraid!
great if you have a home sports center with rings and slide.Visy on the rings or horizontal bar train arm muscles (note the grip - thumb should be at the bottom of the bar).Please keep the baby, and then necting, opening his arms, but without removing them from the body crumbs - when he tired to hang and slide, you will be able to catch him quickly.
Practice with a slide (if it is not at home, you can do it on the street).Hold the baby's waist, put his head down the hill and begin to "descend".Tiny nothing left, how to stand on all fours ...
Learn to walk "in the hands": raise the baby legs, so he got up on his hands.Poraskachivayte baby back and forth - it will surely enjoy!The floor should not be slippery (bad this laminate), but not too soft (as fluffy carpets).baby clothes should be comfortable and not hamper movements (you can do without it).
leave naked feet - toes will slide, and the shoe will make it impossible rigidly abut the entire foot.To crawl to the floor or laminate can be spread blankets and fix them at the edges so as not going.Get comfortable for the child and for you.He was warm and it does not hurt if you suddenly "bite spout."And you can wash these blankets at least every day - and no problems with hygiene.
