All parents without exception worry about the health of their child. The issue of full-fledged physical, mental, neuropsychic development is especially troubling for parents in the first year of life. How does the child develop by months? We offer for consideration an approximate plan for the formation of the young: we estimate the psychophysical development of the child up to a year, the terms and norms for WHO.

Development up to a year Before, all kids deve
lop about the same, but you have to make allowances for the individual characteristics and parameters of the child at birth

Table of physical parameters of up to a year

To assess the rate of growth, weight gain and physical development of the baby, it is worth to get acquainted with the average conventional indicators of child development stages toof the year. However, we must not forget that all children have individual development schedules, exact compliance with the tables is not mandatory, minor deviations from the norms are allowed. Do not forget also that boys and girls differ slightly in their neuropsychological development, but if the child does not acquire the skills and development indicators normal for his age, it is necessary to consult a doctor. Table of physiological parameters of the child up to the year:

So, how does a newborn baby grow during the first year? Consider the development of a child up to a year using a calendar divided by every 3 months from the birth of the baby.

Birth to 3 months

Calendar NEWBORN


A newborn is born with advanced hearing and vision. There is a vivid manifestation of congenital reflexes: sucking, swallowing, blinking and grabbing the child can from the first minutes of life. However, until the baby is unable to turn over. The newborn from the position on the tummy can not lift the head, but the instinct of self-preservation works - the head turns on the cheek.

Calendar 1 MONTH

The baby is able to hold the head for a few seconds, tries to lift it when lying on the tummy. In a month there is a response to sounds and sharp movements, expressed in involuntary dilution of the handles and their subsequent pressing against the body. You can also see a spontaneous imitation of walking.


Calendar 2 MONTHS

The breastfish lifts and holds the head "standing" 1 - 1.5 minutes, and from the position on the tummy, it can lift not only the head, but also the chest. He pays attention to sounds and bright lights by turning his head and looking attentively. There is an intensive development of the vestibular apparatus. The child grabs and holds moving objects.

Calendar 3 MONTHS

For 3 months the baby should hold the head well for 1 to 3 minutes. From a lying position on the abdomen can be raised, resting on the elbows. He starts to turn over, spin, change position, but in the movements there is still no clear coordination. He watches with interest toys, draws pens to them. He starts to put his fingers in his mouth, grab and pull the sheet.

I like the society of adults. Communication with parents is very exciting for the crumb, the baby "comes to life", shows joy, smiles, laughs. He can walk for a long time, turns his head to unfamiliar sounds. Now the little one is especially touching, do not forget to take photos more often!
Baby 3 months old The active socialization of the baby starts from three months on - it becomes more emotional, reacts lively to other people

Physical features

Month Movements and skills Vision Rumor
1 Handles and legs are bent, movements are poorly coordinated. Everything is built on unconditional reflexes. Especially pronounced sucking and grasping reflexes. By the end of the month can turn his head. It can take a few minutes to keep your face or toy in sight. Can follow the eyes of an arc-moving toy( the so-called "automatic tracking"). The mucous fluid in the tympanic membrane gradually resolves, resulting in better hearing. The baby listens to the voice and the rattle.
2 Active movements develop: pulls the handles to the sides, turns the head. In the position on the abdomen can for 5 seconds. Raise your head. Improved hand movements: 2-3 seconds. Holds the rattle, strikes it. Smoothly monitors moving objects for 10-15 seconds. Fixes a look at the toy / face for 20-25 seconds. Able to perceive objects three-dimensionally. Focuses on sounds 5-10 seconds. And turns his head toward the sounds of a rattle and a voice.
3 Within 30 seconds. Holds the head and hands in an adult, and in tech.1 minute - lying on his stomach. In this position, it rises on the handles, resting on the elbows. When the baby is held under the arms, it rests against the surface of the feet, the legs are straightened. There is a general motor "animation": it can flex, becoming a "bridge" and falling onto the crib. The grasping reflex is transformed into a conscious grasp. Interestingly( not automatically) watching an arc-moving toy. It is considered about 5 minutes. Their pens. He is interested in all nearby objects( up to 60 cm from the eyes). The "localization" of the sound is formed: the child first takes his eyes to the side of the sound, and then turns the head. He begins to react poorly to loud sharp sounds: he freezes, frowns, and then cries.

The baby adapts to the surrounding world, there is an interest in objects, a coordinated movement of pens and eyes develops.
2 The child responds with a smile to address him, kneels with knobs. In the conversation there are sounds of the initial stage of the walk: ag-to-x, to-xx. The scream acquires various intonations. Interest in external objects increases, visual-orientation reactions improve.
3 The revitalization complex is manifested at 100% -the first conscious act of behavior, an attempt to interact with an adult "eye to eye."The revitalization complex marks the beginning of the infancy stage. Vowel sounds and their different combinations appear: aaa, ae, ay, a-gu. Interest in the environment becomes selective and conscious.

The opinion of Dr. Komarovsky

Popular today, Dr. Komarovsky intelligently and intimately talks about children in his book "The Beginning of Life: Your Child from Birth to 1 Year", as well as in his video lessons. Of course, the main emphasis is on pediatric issues, but apart from that, books and lectures can be learned about:

  • principles for carapace care;
  • feeding and feeding of children( according to WHO, and also according to the author's method of complementary feeding);
  • key stages of growth and development( when the baby has to sit, crawl, stand and walk).
