BABY EINSTEIN: Your Curious 5-month-old

Motherly in partnership with Baby Einstein

Your baby is becoming more and more confident as she discovers her world.

Make the most of their milestones:

Your baby is growing fast and no doubt constantly amazing you with his new skills. From his sweet babbling during tummy time to rolling (and rolling and rolling!), we’ve created a guide of new milestones to watch for and suggestions for you to encourage your playful 5-month-old.

Your baby loves being part of group activities—and adding his voice to the conversation! (Psst…now is a great time to start repeating “mama” whenever possible ?.) He’s also trying out a new bag of movement tricks, including rolling to reach new toys. An activity gym is a great way to encourage that newfound love of adventure.

Here are a few suggestions to make the most of your baby’s fifth month.

Thinking
Your baby can understand different sounds (but not words yet).
Try This: Point out different sounds you hear together, like car horns or bird tweets.

Engaging
He loves taking in the sights, sounds and excitement of group activities.
Try This: Check your library for music classes or baby events you can both enjoy.

Communicating
He has started putting vowels and consonants together to make new sounds.
Try This: Imitate your baby’s sounds to teach him you are listening.

Moving
Baby will roll from tummy to back, followed by back to tummy.
Try This: The Journey of Discovery 5-in-1 Playmat inspires movement with colorful designs and engaging toys to reach for.

       

Your postpartum life:

If you’re feeling more comfortable getting out with your baby, this is a great time to try to make some mom friends. Attending mommy-and-me classes are perfect for this. We know it can feel awkward at first, but remember, they want to meet you too!

It takes a village, mama! Let the love in from family and (new mom!) friends as you adapt to new changes in your routine.
