In the third year of life, the child is still growing rapidly, gaining both weight and height. However, intense physical development occurs against the background of the immaturity of the circulatory, respiratory and digestive systems of the body, and this makes it very vulnerable.
The circle of communication of the baby is expanding. The child becomes unusually mobile and actively explores the world around him. These factors increase the likelihood of injury, infection, poisoning. To maintain his health, follow the doctor’s recommendations regarding routine vaccinations – they will insure the child from the serious consequences of dangerous diseases.
Not the last role is played by the hardening of the child. More often give him the opportunity to walk barefoot on grass or sand in the summer, take with him water and air baths. Spend as much time as Continue reading
The child’s physical skills no longer develop as quickly as before, simply because by the age of two his body is already coordinated, he performs all actions consciously, by a strong-willed impulse. He jumps on one and two legs, actively runs, easily starting and stopping, and at the same time does not hurt the obstacles in his path.
Fine motor skills are improved every day. The kid carefully takes small objects using a tweezers, can build a fairly high tower of cubes, turn the pages of the book one at a time, cut paper with scissors.
And the child learns to work: paints, plasticine, pencils, coloring books or just an album – all this develops the child’s drawing skills, and in the subsequent speech and writing. Make his learning safe and Continue reading
The child already does all the actions consciously. The body is accustomed to obeying the will (although before that there were a lot of trial and error). The child no longer pulls everything in his mouth in order to explore it. He uses other senses: vision, touch.
If the child is given pencils and paper, then most likely he will not pull the pencils in his mouth, and he will not squeeze the paper. He will start to draw.
Although it’s still difficult to call these scribbles a drawing, it’s the first step towards the development of a child’s conscious creativity.
In the game, the child loses simple stories: feeds the doll, puts the bear to sleep. What he sees in everyday Continue reading
Sufficient physical activity is very important for a one and a half year old child. He knows how to walk, many children know how to run, jump and squat. Now make it a rule for you to walk with your child every day for at least 2 hours, regardless of weather / rain / snow. It is better if there are two walks of 2 hours each. This is very important not only for the development of physical skills, but also to maintain the health of the baby, and to reduce the incidence of SARS.
The baby’s nutrition is already quite close to that of adults, and in most cases there is no need to cook the child separately (of course, if you don’t eat too spicy, salty, canned or pickled). If the child had intolerance to the protein of cow’s milk, then, most likely, tolerance has already developed. Therefore, Continue reading
By this age, most children can walk independently. The first step is behind, and ahead are new skills and abilities, conquering new heights. The child is already learning to overcome new obstacles, climb over fences, climb climbs.
Most children have 8 teeth by the age of 1 year. Someone has more, someone less. Teething is an individual matter. Make sure your child has received enough vitamin D. Remember that your child’s need for vitamin D increases after a year. Now the need for vitamin D is 600 IU / day according to WHO.
By the age of one year, the child sleeps less during the day. Many babies go to a single daytime sleep, Continue reading
