When will the child begin to roll over? Wait or help
From the very first day of his life, the child embarks on the path of cognition of the world around him, and parents are witnessing everyday discoveries of the baby, gaining new skills and abilities. When will he learn to distinguish colors? Does he recognize close people? Does her name know? When will the child begin to roll over? And crawl? When to wait for the first tooth and hesitant steps? All these questions are of interest to loving parents, because the child's development from 0 months to a year is a very interesting and very intensive process.
As soon as your baby begins to confidently hold the head at about the age of two or three months, prepare for the fact that soon he will start learning a new skill - turning over. The first half of the child's life is a period of rapid development of motor activity, which helps him to explore the new world. Therefore, even before the child starts turning over, it is advisable not to leave him alone on the couch or bed, where he can easily fall down.
What time does the child start to roll over? Someone has mastered this skill already in 3-4 months, than the parents are very proud of. It is noted that active children do this much earlier than their peers - because the more attempts a child makes, the faster he learns. Large children learn to turn over later skinny babies. Remember, experts mark 5-6 months as the age when the child begins to roll over without the help of the parents in any case. During this period, all his muscles have already grown strong enough.
Is it possible to help the baby or wait for the child to turn over himself? Your crumb for six months, but he never shows you this skill? Think, whether the immunity of the child after a cold is weakened? Yes? Then do not worry, soon the immunity and muscles will be restored. And then you can help your child learn to turn over.
Put the child on the back, take it by the right arm and leg and turn to the side. Make several approaches in different directions.
The next stage of training is a coup on the stomach. Doing in the morning the above exercise, give the child the opportunity to return to the original position. Do not tire him. However, if the baby is sluggish and does not show any interest in the movements, contact the pediatrician to find out the reasons.
Strengthen the muscles of the child with gymnastics, massage and water procedures. You can master the technique of massage yourself, but the first session is best conducted under the supervision of a specialist in a children's polyclinic. Pay attention to the intensity and nature of the movements, so as not to harm the baby.
To avoid asymmetry of the spine, make sure that the crumb is turned in both directions. Many people use bright toys left on the side of the baby so that it turns in their direction. Try to be close to the child at these moments, because, having turned over the first time, he may get scared and will be afraid to repeat this action again. When your child starts to get a coup, support him with tender words, hug, stroke - so he will understand that this is not scary at all and will take the path of new discoveries! Good luck!
