to new conditions and mode of existence, the child begins to actively
explore the world. His physical, mental, emotional
and social development is entering an active phase.

You can highlight the main “achievements” that
shows a child in 3 months:

  1. Due to the intensive development of subcutaneous adipose tissue
    A 3-month-old baby is “rounded”: his body becomes plump,
    cheeks and folds appear on the limbs.
  2. Physically, the baby acquires new skills. By 3 months
    children master the coup from the back to the tummy, and lying on the stomach,
    may rise for several minutes, leaning on

    the child is awake at about the same time, therefore
    Mom makes it easier to plan your day. DETAILED about the mode of the day

  4. The period begins when the baby tries everything “to the tooth.”

Well, now let’s talk more about the development of the child in all

Height and weight

The physical development of the child is always very exciting and parents, and
pediatricians. Monthly visits to the clinic are not accompanied
only a general inspection, but also the measurement of weight and height. At all,
figure of height and weight is very conditional. For a child
in 3 months you can roughly focus on the following figures:

  • Weight 3-6 kg.
  • Height 54-64 cm.

На рост и вес влияют разные факторы: вес и рост
at birth, type of food, genetics. Tables used
most pediatricians were developed by Soviet specialists and
compiled on the basis of data on children receiving artificial

feeding, so the baby’s parameters may differ from
tabular numbers. For a pediatrician this may be a reason to talk about
lacking or overweight, but if you are breastfeeding,
Remember that on the GW the increments can be from 0.5 to 2 kg.
To feed the baby with breast milk is simply impossible, underfeed
possible only if the feeding technique is violated (as
breastfeeding properly). For example, if the mother does not allow the baby
to be at the breast for as long as it requires, or often changes

Moms babies should be more relaxed to treat inconsistencies
height and weight of the child with some figures. If the child is active,
eats, sleeps, studies the world, if he pisses not less than 12
once a day and pokes 6-8 times, his hair and nails grow –
that means he’s fine.

Reflexes at three months

The behavior of the infant and his actions are regulated with
using reflexes and instincts. Most reflexes of newborns
already fade away by 3 months. For example, at this age the presence of
The following reflexes may indicate neurological

  • search reflex (in response to stroking the corner of the lips, the child
    turns the head towards the stimulus and opens the mouth);
  • proboscis reflex (touching the upper lip leads to
    the fact that the child pulls out the sponge in the form of a proboscis);
  • Babkin’s reflex (when pressing a finger on the palm of a baby, he
    opens the mouth and makes the head move forward).

Some reflexes can still be saved. For example, reflex
Moreau, expressed in the fact that the child throws up the handles and
spreading fingers when he is laid on his back or
raise his legs above the surface. This ancient reflex
evolutionarily developed to protect the child from falling.

But the sucking reflex and crawling reflex at 3 months still
very pronounced as they are directly involved in
survival and harmonious development of the child.

New умения

Two basic skills that form to 3

  • the ability to roll from back to tummy;

begins to make the first attempts only closer to 4-5 months. Have
each little man has his own speed of development, so if
the baby is healthy and has no neurological problems, he
be sure to learn to roll over and rise (when children
begin to roll over).

By the way, the process of mastering new skills can be a bit
to speed up. This will help parents The following tips:

  1. To the standard daily gymnastics add exercise,
    stimulating coups. The baby lies on the back, his right leg
    you need to lift, holding the shin, and lead to the left, as if
    throwing it over the body. This moment in coups is
    for the child the most difficult, because it is he who gives the whole body
    impulse to make a movement. Later, the kids learn themselves.
    push off from a horizontal surface.
  2. In good faith, perform the full range of exercises that
    recommend pediatricians. The basis of all new physical skills lies

  3. Contribute to the development of a second skill can be very simple
    way: regularly lay the baby on his stomach. And to lie in
    Such a pose was interesting, lay out bright toys in front of him.
    A great option for this age is a developing mat.
