Must-Have Products for 3 – 6 months Babies

Starting at 3 months, the joy of feeding becomes a reality. You have already decided whether breastfeeding or formula is better for your baby. The time spent together is still filled with discovery. And depending on the sleep patterns your baby may already have established, he may stay in the crib longer.

What can my baby do at this age?

This age is very social, and children begin to move more purposefully. Babies develop at their own pace, but here are some common milestones your baby may reach this age:

  • Balances his or her head well.
  • Begins to support the body with the legs when in a standing position.
  • Rolls from back to front and front to back by 6 months.
  • Can transfer light objects from one hand to the other.
  • Grasps toes and feet when laying on the back.
  • Makes “swimming” movements with arms and legs when placed on the stomach.
  • Starts to drool (not always a sign of teething)
  • Naps 2-3 times a day for 1-3 hours (on average)
  • Starts sleeping longer at night (6 to 8 hours all the time).

In our list below, you will find our favorite foods for this exciting stage.

Best feeding supplies for babies

You have already decided what to feed your baby – breast milk or formula. Your baby has already worked out a feeding schedule – when, where, how much, how quickly.

Be guided by the information coming from your baby to guide feedings.

Let him eat the way he wants – a lot or a little, fast or slow, steady or intermittent. After feeding, talk or play for a while. Put him to bed when he is calm and sleepy, let him put himself to sleep.

Choose the best feeding tools for your baby.

Best products to help your baby sleep well

Sleep is very important for babies. All basic functions develop during this time. The developing body of the baby works every day, and during sleep, it gets the necessary rest and continues to develop skills and acquisitions.

Babies at this age need about 12 hours of sleep per night.

Daytime naps can last up to 3.5 hours and 2 to 2.5 hours of wakefulness.

Bathing & Baby Skin Care

Babies should be bathed two or three times a week in warm, but not hot water to keep them clean. Fill the tub no more than 2 to 3 inches with water. To keep your baby warm while bathing, regularly pour full cups of water over his or her shoulders.

Obviously, the baby is not so dirty that you need to give him a long bath. It is enough to dip a washcloth in soapy water and gently wash the baby’s scalp with it, using baby shampoo. To clean the face, moisten a cotton ball and blot it gently.

Take a look at review articles about essentials for bathing your baby.
