Many children of this age calmly endure a night’s sleep without feedings. And if they still wake up at night, do not rush to perform night feeding the baby, try to give some water or a dummy, change the diaper, gently stroke and maybe the baby again fall asleep.
Children wake up at night not because of hunger, but a habit, experiencing discomfort, because before you fed him into it time. A good night’s sleep is important for a good rest the body and digestive tract of the baby. If he is good at night rested, the morning will be joyful and active.

How to keep your baby awake and walking
At the age of 3 months, children they love the game of hide and seek, cuckoo leads them to indescribable delight. For a long time, you can be alone in a bed or an entertaining rug, looking at the suspended toys, trying to grab them and hold on.

You must unobtrusively switch it to another occupation, if you feel that he is tired of it and mood spoils, the baby himself at this age cannot find himself occupation.
Turn on the music to the child, sing songs, tell the children rhymes and jokes. The kid still does not understand the words, but sensitively captures intonation, learning to communicate.
I included a collection of classics for my kid kids “Mozart, Bach, Beethoven. He has long remained in his memory these bewitching sounds. And getting older, he recognized this music, freezing, listened. Read this material and you will understand that to accustom a baby to a baby’s dummy is easy.

During the walk, if the baby is not sleeping, continue it to acquaint with the world around him, necessarily voicing a car, dog, leaflet, kitty in the language of the child, so the child will it’s easier to remember and later name things yourself, actively thereby training the articulation apparatus, bbc, av, meow.
The kid transforms sounds very cute for himself. So my baby said – bv (car), mi (cat), ty (bird and chicken too).
Physical education and massage
We continue to do massage, we do little exercises, we connect physical exercises, stretching and crossing of handles, bending – extension of legs. Lying on my tummy the child lifts his head high, leaning on outstretched arms and caving in the upper back.
Helping him, holding the handle, turn from position lying on your back, on your left, right side. Cheering him affectionate in words, we stimulate movement.
Good mood during classes is the key to successful and more productive results of the physical development of the baby.
