Growth And Development In Babies Aged 4 Months?
Good morning, I want to ask. R nMy child is 4 months and 2 weeks old, from 3 months he can be on his stomach, but my grandmother said that his spine and waist were still weak, not strong yet. Is it normal for that age but still weak? Is there a way to get strong soon? thanks.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
At the age of 4 months, normal babies are generally able to reach the following developmental stages:
Able to raise his head up to 90 degrees Able to support the weight on his feet when he is raised Able to roll over to his stomach You laugh spontaneously and respond to people who ask him to smile Starts chattering a lot, like "ooo", "aah" Responds when called Able to hold Able to hold his hands together Baby Those of you who are able to lie flat on their own are likely to indicate a fairly good development status according to their age. However, this still needs to be confirmed with a thorough examination, including to compare other developmental statuses and growth rates.
Need to be clear, where did your grandmother know that your child's back and waist were not strong yet? What checks have been done? Is your grandmother a doctor?
If you have never checked your child to a doctor, you should not rush to conclusions. Monitoring the development of children needs to be done objectively, namely using standardized standards, so that it is not only based on visible assessments by ordinary people. We recommend that you check your child first with a pediatrician in the growth and development subdivision so that their growth and development can be monitored properly.
In the meantime, don't get bored with stimulation so that your child's development runs precisely as it should. Often ask him to play and joke. Give him toys that catch his eye and avoid using gadgets too early. Also know, that each child has his own stage of development, so it is not appropriate to compare your child's development with others without a clear basis.
Hope it helps ..
