At what age a child begins to recognize his mother
When a child begins to recognize his mother - an issue of interest to all, without exception, women who have experienced the joy of motherhood.On this subject there are many psychological works.We describe the average terms of child development and the ways of their acceleration.
It is believed that the very first emotional bond formed between mother and child immediately after birth, if the mother put the baby on his stomach.The child instinctively tries to reach the nipple for the first time feel the smell of mom and stores it.This is the first communication is also important from the point of view that a woman's maternal instinct will appear, and you receive the colostrum and then breastmilk.In order not to deprive of this first contact, is now even a cesarean section in most cases performed under epidural anesthesia, that is, the woman remains conscious during and after the operation, and is ready to cuddle your baby.
However, the child beginsto recognize mom and dad and consciously smile much later.Indeed, in the first days after birth, he sees pretty bad, that is, sees only those objects that are close to his eyes.And the main and most common object in his field of vision is my mother's face.He remembers it and has in a short time, just a month, is starting to recover, when he sees a familiar person next to him.A 3 month old baby can already see with both eyes at the same time (binocular vision starts to work).4 In the same month the child is already well know not only the mother, but also dad and other loved ones, which often sees.And strangers begins to fear the contrary, can cry because of their presence.If you want to speed up the process of remembering your face - you can hang in the crib baby his portrait, only at a distance and at an angle to make it convenient to consider.
As for sounds, there is familiarity with the baby can be carried out even before his birth.The kid, though bad, but still heard through the amniotic fluid voice of his mother and other sounds.Psychologists recommend to the third trimester of pregnancy to listen to classical music, as this is good for the mental development of the child.But it is well to distinguish between the sounds of a child learns is closer to 3-4 months of life.It is believed that at this age a child can already distinguish the mother's voice from the voices of other family members, and to turn his head toward the sound source.
