Already on his stomach back and forth but still 1 direction only (to the right) .6. Already blabbering ‘ta-ta-ta’, ‘ba-ba-ba’, ‘ga-ga-ga’7. Sleep pattern, on average 2 hours of sleep during the day. Divided into 2 x sleeping sessions each approximately 1 hours only. At 10:00 and 14:00. And sleep at night at 21:00. My questions: 1. Is my daughter obese? 2. Is my daughter experiencing developmental delays? 3. Did I check something about my daughter? Thank you love
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com.
1. Is my daughter obese? to measure the nutritional status of infants can use the WHO weight curve based on age and weight according to height. If measured by weight according to age, mother's child is on the 22nd curve. Is my daughter experiencing developmental delays? The development of a 5 month old baby can be seen by reading the following article https://www.HealthReplies.com/baby-5-month-starting-can-sit
In the article said, in infants 5 months of development can say ma-ma, da-da, ba-ba, smile and cry, reach for the surrounding objects, holding a milk bottle, sleeping on his left and right side and rolling, lying on his stomach and so on. So from the speech development of mother children according to age, but motor development needs to be taught to sleep on his stomach, roll around and reach for objects around him and hold the bottle
3. Did I check something related to my daughter? It is better to find out more about the growth and development of the baby's mother, immediately consult a pediatrician
Prevention can be done:
1. give the child breast milk per 2 hours, not put to sleep immediately after that
2. stimulate your child with a lot of motor movements according to his age
3. monitor the growth and development of your baby every month to the baby posyandu
so hopefully useful :)
