Fifth month: a more active baby

The interactions with little noises and smiles and more activity make this an unforgettable phase.

Awake for longer periods of time during the day and with motor skills and intellectual development on full throttle, five-month-old babies are pure energy. Inspire yourself with this list of crucial suggestions for this phase:

  • Try taking a toy from their hands, and then giving it back
  • Let them play with colorful cubes and small boxes: it’s a way to encourage their ability to fit things into containers.
  • Hold the child by the armpits and put them on their feet for short periods of time.
  • Give them teethers and toys they can put in their mouths.
  • Incentivize them to imitate you by making funny faces or sticking your tongue out.
  • Singe or play some music to uplift the baby and help them dance and clap their hands.
  • Let them sit around, but not just on the baby seat: cover pieces of furniture (the sofa, bed, or even the floor) with pillows and keep their spine straight.
  • Mobiles and activity mats are great for entertaining and stimulating motor and vision skills.
  • Follow the instructions from the pediatrician about vaccinations correctly. Free of diseases and risks, the child can develop completely.
  • Incentivize and encourage the entire family to participate in playtime – dad, brothers, grandmas, etc.
