Baby Development at 5 Months (Video)


Month five of your little one's life can be a thrilling time for your family. Here are some things you should expect:


In month five, your baby is gaining his or her strength. This means that your little one might be able to sit up on his or her own. If so, keep an eye on your baby during this time because he or she might be a little wobbly. 

This is also a time when your baby might begin to gain some independence. Try to put your baby in the crib while drowsy, rather than fast asleep. This is a crucial time because your infant will learn to soothe his or herself to sleep - which will make your job easier down the road.
