As the baby grows, the life pattern of each age group will be different. How to arrange the baby’s work and rest time reasonably during the day, how to eat well, play well, and sleep well?

0-2 months

Sleeping: During this period, the baby usually sleeps for a few hours before getting up and drinking milk. In the morning, after opening his eyes, wipe his face with a warm towel, so that the baby can bathe in the morning sun as much as possible. Let your baby spend the day in a sunny room, and don’t turn on the lights at night while sleeping.

Going for a walk: The baby who is less than the full moon should spend it indoors. After the full moon, he can start to bathe in the outdoor sunshine for a short time. With the change of seasons, make appropriate time adjustments, allowing your baby to stay outdoors for a few minutes from the warm season. After this, you can gradually increase the time and go for a walk for about 10 minutes every day.

Meals: For babies under the full moon, they can eat as much as they want, and feed them whenever they want. Starting from about 1 month, the baby will gradually develop a certain feeding habit, so when the baby is crying, think about whether it is because he wants to breastfeed or for other reasons. There should be at least 1-1.5 hours between feedings.

Bathing: Taking a bath can keep your body fresh, and it is best to wash it every day. Don’t take too long each time you wash.

3-4 months

Sleeping: During this period, the baby’s internal biological clock will be adjusted according to 24 hours a day. Life will become more and more regular according to the day and night. During this period, some babies can even sleep soundly at night without feeding. It is not the baby’s personality to sleep soundly during the day and night. Mom and Dad should help the baby to correct it.

Diet: Taking into account the supplementary food that will be added at 5-6 months, the feeding interval can be slightly longer to a certain extent. Every four hours, feeding time 5-6 times a day is the most basic. But as long as there is a regular pattern.

Going out for a walk: Because the continuous waking time increases during the day, indoor play can be more fulfilled, and walking is a daily compulsory course. 20 minutes is necessary, but the maximum time should not exceed 1 hour.

Bathing: In addition to avoiding the time before and after feeding, you can take a bath when the baby is comfortable and the mother is convenient. But make sure to bathe at the same time. The bath time should be 3 minutes as the standard.

Diet: Two of the three meals a day can be the same as before, and gradually change the time of one breastfeeding to complementary food. The interval between complementary foods should be 3 to 4 hours, and the mealtime must be fixed. It was good to eat with an adult one time.
