What a baby should be able to do at 6 months

Many babies begin to sit up on their own during this period, or at least try to do so.
If the child is held under the arms, he confidently pushes off with his legs from a hard surface.
Eye-hand coordination is so developed that the child consciously and purposefully reaches for objects with both hands, can pass them from hand to hand. nine0016
The sucking reflex practically disappears and the baby can be fed with a spoon.
The sixth month is characterized by a growth spurt, the child begins to show more emotions. First of all, it is joy and anger, which can be expressed through gestures, facial expressions or various sounds
A six-month-old baby can play with one toy for a long time and not be distracted for 15-20 minutes. Therefore, it is recommended to actively develop fine motor skills with the help of developing rings and pyramids. nine0016
At the age of six months, the process of teething begins, swelling of the gums and increased salivation can be observed. It is important to visit a pediatric dentist to determine the condition of the frenulum and jaw structure.
At 6 months, night sleep lengthens, the child can continuously sleep for 6-7 hours. The amount of daytime sleep decreases - 2-3 times for 30-40 minutes.
Baby skills at 6 months
So, the baby has reached the age of six months, as he looks: lying on his stomach, leans on the pelvis and arms, while his palms are fully open, he knows how to lift his chest from the surface well, and can bend a little in the back. nine0003
At 6 months, the child's skills develop, the following changes are observed:
The kid is active, independent, becomes extremely inquisitive. There are skills of finding the object that he is told about, he will easily point to his favorite toy.
The cognitive function of the brain continues to develop: at 6 months, the baby begins to understand the relationship of cause and effect (if you push the toy, it will fall).
The baby can play enthusiastically for some time without requiring attention from the mother. nine0016
He can crawl like a plastuna, although he sways from side to side.

Mental development of a child at 6 months
At six months, parents notice a change in the psycho-emotional background of the child. If earlier crying was the main tool of communication, now it is mainly negative emotions expressed in this way - pain or discomfort. The "vocabulary" of the baby is increasing, in his arsenal there are already about 40 sounds.
The mental development of a child of six months of life is progressing, now a completely conscious conversation takes place between an adult and a baby. He can show or find the subject in question. nine0003
The kid recognizes the voices of his parents at a distance, reacts with a joyful squeal or peculiar exclamations, showing the need for attention. At the age of six months, children show tenderness to their parents as much as possible, tend to snuggle and hug.
There is an awareness of causal relationships. The baby begins to understand that the mother will come to the cry, and if a bottle or plate appears in the field of view, it is lunch time.
The child has an innate instinct for self-preservation, but due to the lack of proper experience, it is not well developed. And given the fact that the baby’s mobility is increasing, you should carefully monitor his movements and secure the space around the child as much as possible so that he has more opportunities to explore the “world”. nine0003
 The first weaning is an important event
At six months, they begin to introduce complementary foods, which allows you to diversify the diet of the child. You should start with soft foods, choosing vegetable purees or cereals, maintaining interest in new foods, and also giving a little taste of what mom or dad eats. Learn more about first feeding.
Six-month-olds develop an understanding of "object permanence": they will look for an object that has been dropped or that has disappeared from view. nine0003
At 6 months, the child's coordination improves, movements become purposeful. Now the state of the baby is easy to determine by his emotions, he openly expresses joy and discontent. At this stage of development, the child checks what materials the toys are made of and what sounds they make. He feels them, shakes them, and even tastes them.
Child care at 6 months
For the most part, parents already know how to care for an infant. The rules of care remain unchanged - daily washing, timely change of diapers, full bathing twice a week. nine0003
Since the child is intensively learning to crawl, it is necessary to monitor the cleanliness of the house and the baby's hands. At six months, the process of eruption of the first teeth begins, a decrease in local immunity of the oral cavity is possible. Parents should make sure that all toys that a child puts in their mouth are as clean as possible. Such precautions will help to avoid the development of infectious processes.
The sixth month is great for weaning from the pacifier and bottle, the baby should be given to drink from a cup or spoon as often as possible. If the baby stubbornly refuses to give up the pacifier, pediatricians recommend replacing it with a special orthodontic nipple. nine0003
An important step in the care is daily massage and gymnastics, swimming in a special pool. Gymnastic exercises are aimed at stabilizing the child in space. Be sure to check with your pediatrician before doing any exercise.
 Six months is the right age to assess your baby's development. In this period, the child achieves a very important skill - he masters the skills of turning from back to stomach, and does it equally deftly, both to the left and to the right. In addition, the child continues to stubbornly try to sit up. Six months is exactly the time by which the child should learn to perform such actions. However, it is necessary to take into account the individual characteristics of each child and not rush things. nine0003 You might be interested in reading an article on baby development at 7 months.
Six months is the first round date for your baby. By this time, he was strong and about twice as heavy since birth. Together you have already gone through several developmental leaps, grown the first teeth (but this is not certain), and mastered new motor skills. Further more! And where further and what more - now we will tell. nine0003

All children are different. Even twins often have different rates of development. Any tables and norms can only serve as a guide. Hardly anyone can feel a child better than a mother and know what and when he needs. nine0003
Baby's height and weight at 6 months
In 2005, the World Health Organization (WHO) issued the Child Development Standards. They are based on a large-scale study of the height and weight of almost 9,000 full-term boys and girls from around the world who were breastfed for at least 6 months and their mothers did not smoke. Unlike the old standards, the new norms allow parents to track the development of the child, taking into account his individual characteristics.
Child height at 6 months
Babies grow an average of 1.7 cm in their sixth month. Perhaps this month you will decide to move your baby from the cradle, if you have used it, to a larger crib.
Senior sleep consultant, pediatrician
Children's height and weight norms are very wide, depending on the term of delivery and birth weight, type of feeding. It is optimal when the height and weight indicators are in the same column-corridor (“medium”, “low”, “above average”, etc.) or in neighboring ones. The attention of the pediatrician is required when both indicators are in the extreme columns, or the difference between the corridors of values is 3 or more (for example, weight and height in the first percentile corridor is “very low” or weight in the first is “very low”, and height in the fifth is “higher than medium"). nine0162
Babies gain an average of 450 grams in six months. But the increase can be either more or less than the average value. It is worth showing the baby to the doctor if he adds less than 100 grams per week.
Pediatrician with more than 18 years of experience
It is worth remembering the difference in gains between breastfed and artificially fed children. Babies who eat formula milk add gradually, in the first six months, 600–700 g each. But breastfed babies up to 4–6 months old can sometimes even gain up to 1.5–2.5 kg per month, and this is absolutely normal , in the second half of the year such "dumplings" will definitely "slim". nine0005
You may notice that at this age the baby begins to move his fingers more clearly when grasping. If a toy gets into his hand, he not only can hold it, but swings it and shifts it from hand to hand. In the bathroom, the child can wave his hands at the sight of water, and while bathing, slap them on the surface. With “empty” hands, the baby also sometimes waves rhythmically.
Physical development of a child at 6 months
The baby becomes much more mobile. Many six-month-old children begin to crawl and sit up on their own. But don't worry if this hasn't happened to your child yet. Normally, independent sitting can develop even up to 9months, and crawling - up to 13!
You can encourage crawling by placing toys in front of your baby so that he has to move forward a little to catch them. Let the child crawl all over the floor in the room, ideally if the whole house becomes his play space. Before you let your baby crawl, make sure sockets are covered with plugs, wires and small objects are removed, hanging edges of the tablecloth are tucked up, and access to dangerous substances is closed.
Moms are most worried this month:
Is it possible to sit down a baby if he is not yet sitting by himself?
If the baby does not sit down by himself, do not rush to sit him down. Better pay attention to preparing the muscles of the arms and back for mastering this skill. Encourage your child to get on all fours and crawl, do some light exercise, such as giving your baby your fingers to grab and allowing him to pull himself up on his hands and sit down. Having strengthened his arms and back, having mastered the position on all fours, the baby will quickly sit down without your help. nine0003
Tell your pediatrician if by the end of the seventh month the child has not learned to roll over from his stomach to his back.
If your baby has already shown food interest (looks enthusiastically at your plate, pulls his hands to your food), then at this age it is already possible to introduce complementary foods. It is usually recommended to start with one boiled vegetable, without salt or any other additives, with a serving of a quarter teaspoon, preferably in the morning. In any case, before introducing the first complementary foods, be sure to consult a pediatrician. nine0003
After six months, the innate immunity that the child received from the mother during pregnancy weakens. Perhaps the baby will catch a runny nose for the first time or start coughing. Read the article on sleep during illness to know how your baby will behave when unwell.
Many six-month-old babies are in the midst of teething. This can affect both sleep and behavior during the day.
Mental development of a child 6 months old
Literally, the baby has just come out of the fifth leap of development, as a result of which he learned about the relationship of things and the presence of a distance between them. As a consequence of this new knowledge, a separation fear appears: the child understands that his mother can leave, and he will not catch up with her! Therefore, he becomes more restless and can “hang” in his arms for a long time. nine0003
In addition, the baby begins to fear strangers. Now he is unlikely to go to the hands of a doctor or even to his grandmother, whom he has not seen for a long time, and maybe even be afraid of her one look!
Pay attention to the pediatrician if by the end of the seventh month the child does not chant syllables like “ma-ma”, “ba-ba”, “ga-ga”, etc. (does not babble).
Baby massage at 6 months
From the age of six months, one more massage technique can be added to stroking and rubbing - kneading. With the fingertips of one hand, except for the big one, lightly press on the skin and make short circular movements. Thus, we pass along the handles from the hand to the shoulder, along the legs from the foot to the hip, along the tummy clockwise, along the back from the buttocks to the neck along the spine. nine0003
Remember that for a healthy baby, massage is first of all a pleasant communication with the mother, and not an obligatory procedure. Five minutes a day will be enough. And if he (or you) doesn’t like it at all, it’s better to refuse such a pastime.
To make the massage more interesting, you can accompany it with play rhymes, for example:
Rain waters the grass, ( lightly tap on the back with the tips of relaxed fingers )
The wind shakes the tree. nine0094 ( putting hands on shoulders, slightly rocking )
Leaves hanging, hanging ( softly touch your shoulders with your fingertips )
And they fly down quietly. ( slowly stroke along the spine with your fingertips )
Children run out to the kindergarten ( "run" the index and middle fingers of both hands along the back )
And the leaves are collected. ( lightly pinch )
Carry them home ( “pass” with the index and middle fingers of both hands along the back )
And they put it in a box. ( put paper sheets or fingertips on the baby's palm and close his fingers into a fist )
Development of speech
The baby continues to babble, but in parallel, changes are ripening in his mind that prepare the transition of babble into real speech. He continues to develop speech hearing, and he pronounces babbling syllables more and more clearly. This is due to the imitation of the speech that he hears from adults. Therefore, often talk to the child, even if he does not understand the meaning of the words. nine0003
He will begin to understand in just a couple of months, but already now you can prepare fertile ground. Just clearly name the items that the baby is interested in himself or that you are currently using.
How to play with a 6 month old baby?
Games with children after six months become much more interesting and varied.
Ball gymnastics . Stimulates the vestibular apparatus, develops coordination, prepares for walking.
Place the baby on the fitball with his tummy, hold him by the side and knee. Swing the ball back and forth, left and right and in a circle. You can accompany this with jokes, songs and gentle words. nine0003
Then rock up and down: first the baby stands on its feet for a second (you continue to support it), then “dives” upside down (not very low). Repeat 5-6 times. At the end, jump with the child on the ball: up to 10 times lying on the tummy and up to 10 times sitting. And then standing.
Phone Game . Develops onomatopoeia and active speech.
Sit next to your baby, hold a toy phone to your ear and say the simplest syllables, changing intonation and voice. For example:
Dadada! Yes Yes Yes?
Give the phone to the baby. Perhaps he, too, will repeat these syllables after you.
Game “What is there?” . Develops fine motor skills of hands and thinking of the child.
Put an interesting toy in a pretty box. Draw the attention of the baby first to the box itself. Examine it, show the baby how it opens. Invite him to open the box himself.
Then ask, "What's in there?" Switch your baby's attention to the toy. Take the toy out of the box and play with it. At the same time, constantly pay the attention of the baby to the name of the toy. For example: “This is a dog. What a doggy! Let's hide the dog in the box." Continue playing with other toys. nine0003
Many options for playing with a six-month-old baby using the PEKIP system are described in a separate article on our website.
Toys for a 6-month-old baby
A six-month-old baby is interested in almost everything, which means that toys become even more diverse. The child continues to learn colors, shapes, sizes, textures, actions that can be performed with a toy. The only requirement for it is safety: the absence of small parts that can be taken into the mouth, sharp edges, long ribbons, etc.
How sleep and child development mutually influence each other
A 6-month-old baby normally sleeps 13. 5–16 hours a day. Night sleep of them - 10-12 hours. Some children have three more daytime sleeps, while others are already switching to 2. Read more about the night and daytime sleep of a six-month-old baby in our service: "A child's sleep month by month."
At this age, the child can already be offered a toy for sleeping, as well as begin to teach him to fall asleep on his own.
FAQ for BabySleep this month
“The child is 6 months and a week old, all this time there were no problems with sleep, somewhere from 5 months he sleeps at night for 8-9 hours without waking up. Now the picture: three daytime sleeps, the first two are about 1.5 hours each, the last 45 minutes. My daughter always went to sleep and leaves with my breasts, then I put her in the crib.
The question is that I began to go to sleep at night (for the last couple of weeks) late, much later than usual - at 22-23 hours (before that, I normally left with breasts at about 20:00). During the day and in the last hours of the evening, the daughter is cheerful and cheerful, communicates, explores the world, explores rattles. Why can this be so? What to do?" nine0003
Senior sleep consultant, psychologist
Your daughter is growing, and the time she is comfortable with is increasing. Because of this, dreams “slip” and the rhythm of the day as a whole “floats”. After six months, some children are already ready to switch to two daytime naps, if they can withstand at least 3 hours of wakefulness without overindulgence.
What should you do? There are two options: 1 - try to slightly lengthen the daughter's wakefulness at the beginning of the day and between sleeps, and instead of the third sleep, put her to bed early at night; 2 - if two dreams are still clearly not enough for the baby, then one of the first long dreams should be reduced (to about 1 hour) and due to this, bedtime in the evening should be shifted to an earlier time.
