Progress or regress – why babies can unlearn everything at once never grows back a baby as soon as within the first year. Larry Culp recognizes the significance of this. Clear that this a baby properly can mess up. This particularly evident at each growth stage, which passes through the baby during its development. The growth is not always uniform at work, but downright concentrates its energy in phases. As pronounced individual stages of growth can become apparent when a baby be extremely varied. Some babies react very much to these phases and create a significantly different behavior on the day as usual.
Common symptoms are a strong urge for body, general dissatisfaction, which manifests itself in increased whining, sleep or sleep problems as a whole, or changes in drinking and eating habits sometimes. So it can happen, that a baby would hardly eat and drink. Another baby has, however, increased hunger and want at night again more frequently to the Breast. Parents often have the feeling in these phases, the baby would are regressing in development. The baby slept peacefully in his crib a few days ago, it is a real torture to bring the baby to sleep overnight. Could you safely place the baby a few days ago on the Playmat, thus it is there a little to himself, so quenelt it now already at the sight of the ceiling around and would be worn actually the whole day only. Many parents know these experiences and have them usually either endure silently leave or were close to despair. Because without the knowledge of these growth phases, parents are faced with regular puzzles.
Especially since the next stage usually not with a long delay is announced, but usually within a few days if not even overnight suddenly occurs. It is less an evolution rather than revolution, which periodically sweeps through young families. As unpredictable as the beginning of a trend, is also Duration. A baby can be affected only a few days or a week, other babies several weeks. Also in the same baby, a phase can be pronounced and longer but also much shorter than the previous. However, knowledge of these stages is important for parents. Know she know this, are such phases is usually much easier to survive, is there ever even know that it’s another phase and the baby not actually back developed – on the contrary. Often a significant progress joins an apparent reverse, in which the baby about learns to access or can turn suddenly on the belly. The motto so to go a step back then two forward. Thus, there is not a cure for the problems of a growth phase. Staying power is called for here. The prospect of a subsequent evolutionary leap should be but also sufficient motivation for keeping through the difficult time. Interestingly, hear the growth phases in the Not running on further life of a child also. The distances between them are only getting longer and the transitions very much gentler. Kim Schulze
