What your baby can learn
Your baby will begin to understand the world and start to study objects now by grabbing and shaking it. He will also learn to use his hands and fingers as it engages in a supine position while playing with the toys that are next to him. It also slowly discovers his voice as it babbles to himself and takes great joy into becoming noticeable. Since your baby can now start to look at its own toes, it will begin to start looking everywhere. This interest shows the progress in the development of your child.
That your baby needs
Talk to your baby as much as you can. The cerebellum will start to be developed now and with every conversation that you make, it will encourage his language development. The child will exert a lot of force in the learning and discovery of its voice – which will whet his appetite. If your baby starts to suck on his little fingers increasingly or seem interested as it watch you eat, it’s a good sign that it is ready for the first complementary foods. You can start the introduction when your child reaches around 6months of age.
