Some babies might drop the catnap during the late afternoon if they have had catnaps before

Are you wondering about how long your baby should be sleeping and what they should be eating? Here are the things to expect from your 6 month old:

•They can stay awake for up to three hours before they need to go back for naps

•Your baby will now start eating about three solid meals a day, about an hour after milk feeds. This is the time to start introducing solids if you haven’t!

•They will have about 12 hours of sleep a night and around two to four hours of sleep throughout the day

 • Some babies might drop the catnap during the late afternoon if they have had catnaps before

The Milestones of a 6 Month Old 

Babies have different timelines and some experience these before or after the 6 month mark.

Besides what to expect in terms of your baby’s development, here are some milestones to celebrate:

•They most likely doubled their birth weight at this age already

•Your little one can sit up by themselves and can roll forward and backward. They may also wriggle around and move short distances on the floor. Just make sure that they stay safe as they wriggle or move around, with them needing supervision most of the time

•If ever your baby’s eyes changed color since they were born, that is now their permanent eye color and will stay

•They’re most likely babbling a lot and will pay attention to what you say and how it’s said. If you haven’t started telling bedtime stories, this is the best time to start! Incorporate it into their bedtime routine

However, if you don’t experience these development stages and milestones, not to worry! Babies have different timelines and some experience these before or after the 6 month mark. Continue your routine and take care of them well, they’ll get there!
