Baby Basics 101 - Your 5 Month Old Baby

Sharing buttons:

hi it's Michelle from a lesson and in

this video here I've got a

five-month-old now friend of the family

complaining of a stiff baby so that you

know that's where a concern is last

thing I want to hear from a mother that

the baby seems stiff a baby should not

ever ever ever feel stiff don't get me

wrong if they're suddenly in pain and

they're retching yes they're going to

throw back but that's again rare

occasions and that kind of language body

language is language I'm not feeling

good this should not be habitual play

where they're stuck in a sense maybe

shouldn't be stuck the whole idea of

being a baby is that neutrality that

reaction is stimuli as I hear something

here is I hear something here a healthy

baby you have to remember can go in and

out of being symmetrical the

asymmetrical and that's a big difference

doing a lot of studies right now because

I'm writing a paper and it's all about

the asymmetrical baby versus symmetrical

baby well that's great because any baby

can look both at the end and given time

supposedly but that's the difference a

healthy baby can go from an asymmetrical

neutral you know to mean and can go in

and out of it maybe that starting to

have complications in the central

nervous system is kind of stuck or what

might consume stiff soyou'll squiggly

see this little girl just needed a

little bit of help and how she goes from

I have no idea how to play with that toy

and what's really interesting to watch

the hand come into function especially

on the left side and her rolling in

herself so even though she's 5 months

all I'm gonna do to start off with is

just go under her shoulder

go under her pelvis they do it from both

directions how are you

and I'm going to come under this

shoulder he just seemed different so

notice if I lift up this shoulder do you

got my thumb versus if I lift up this

shoulder the shoulders not responding

the same she wants to go more into

hyperextension you're the difference

head she's gonna and then just under

this pelvis so from that I'm just going

to really work on your head this way so

I'm just lifting her head this way and

I'm just going to see how she comes over

to the other side

there you go

can just do it from this side you are

you are and then I get to work I just I

don't want to evaluate little girls but

what I'm doing it so I'm just going to

come under this shoulder this way just

to see if their differences I'm going to

come under the toy see this way or you

can kick me too and then I'm going to

come under here and then come under here

I got baby favorites so I'm just going

to come under also their day I am

because I'm hideous

oh good

and then on the arms which are probably

pretty much gone flat into that table

huh yeah especially this one huh it how

I stood out that's the evaluation so if

you wanted to get technical I'm not

seeing a lot of torque for the chest

he's really trying to splay her little

hands into the table into the you know

she's trying to roll over her way I mean

she wants to move around but she's

realize she they're attentive he's just

you know I mean she's just so if you

wanted to do the good old-fashion way

she's five months old really she should

be falling this over rolling all right

she's not rolling over yet right well

she started to just one away right

let's see my work which way is you run a

Schumer all over to like her right all

right Gagen see where we started a push

to right she likes to likes to read and

also what I'm not seeing is like with

the pelvis that I can toss the feet up

shoot you just go right now get your

school in I would dare you it's okay

it's okay

there's everybody

mmm awesome system and I know to let the

head is a little bit on the heavy side

because we get respond to dethrone

but if everything that I'm saying by the

way is not a criticism already wearing

marching babies are used to different

boys moving your body well I'm really

trying to show now is again you had

concerns you knew me whatever but she's

so cute she's well proportioned you

agree part of the doctor they're gonna

be like you know well let's go with

penny there's she's eating fine

you know she's presenting partly my

whole thing is just can she move better

there you go this is yet this is coming

to the left a head start like

did you want something for the other

hands because that one

why will you have any questions

all right rusty

there you go you ready district a little

bit the rotation to the chest to look at


do you want a chair no good she's my

suicide call sorry
