Fifth Month Update
Posted by: Sharmila Rajah, 30-May-2011
Shamindra is on the tail end of his fifth month- 5 months and 3 weeks to be precise.
He’s responding rather well – laughing at funny expressions; he recognizes his own name and turns his head when he hears us call him. He’s thoroughly entertained when we talk to him. And is able to interact somewhat with us by babbling or with laughter and smiles.
Physically, he has rolled over and back; and seems to be busy trying to push himself up (as if he were about to sit). Putting him in a variety of sitting positions is recommended. The Bumbo seat is great for this, giving him the right amount of support he needs.
