But calm down first, Moms, although strange in our eyes, generally what babies do is part of normal baby growth and not to worry. For example, the following 8 things that babies often do:
1. Baby Holds His Breath For a While
The baby's first habit is quite strange is to hold their breath and this often makes parents worry. Babies begin to have the ability to hold their breath from the age of six months or earlier due to disturbing situations.
When your child feels tired, hungry, or sick from a minor injury, it will be perfectly normal for him to hold his breath for a while. Some babies can even hold their breath for up to a minute which causes them to lose consciousness.
2. Baby Cries Hungry or Thirsty But Does Not Want to Be Breastfed
Babies will usually show themselves hungry by crying loudly, because that's the only way communication can be done. But, when the mother thinks she is very hungry, the little one is reluctant to be breastfed and still cry.
It's pretty weird but it's actually normal. Because, the little one may be angry because the mother responds too long so that the baby refuses to eat.
3. Baby Pretends to cry
Babies usually learn some new communication skills between the ages of six and 12 months. At this age, the baby will also show his ability to pretend to cry.
Not without reason, babies usually pretend to cry to seek the attention of those closest to him and show their dislike for things. Babies are also learning about causation, which is to know the reaction of their parents if they pretend to cry.
4. Baby Pretends to cough
If pretending to cry is strange enough, there are still other things that babies can do at the stage of development, namely, pretending to cough. Parents do not need to worry if they find your little one coughing and suddenly stopped when you come to him. This is one of the normal development experienced by the baby. Yes Moms, your little one is learning new communication skills to socialize with his environment.
5. Baby Puts Everything in The Mouth
When babies start touching and grabbing objects, they won't hesitate to put them in their mouths. This is usually driven by his high curiosity towards the surrounding environment.
In addition, the baby may be experiencing teething, so there is a desire to bite something including toys on his hands. Keep in mind that this is normal and part of your child's development.
6. Baby Gritting Teeth
Babies can grit their teeth or gums which eventually makes parents wonder. But this is also normal in babies when he enters the teething period.
The discomfort felt by your child makes him look for ways to relieve pain, one of which is by gritting his teeth. So, you don't have to worry too much, Moms.
7. Baby Hiccups throughout the day
Babies often experience hiccups and they usually last a long time, even throughout the day. This condition often makes parents worry if their child has certain digestive problems even though it is actually normal.
To quote Baby Gaga, chronic hiccups can occur due to eating too fast or because the baby's respiratory system is not functioning properly. Both of these result in a lot of air being swallowed by the baby. This is also the reason why babies need to be recommended every after eating.
