One of the most notable 5-month-old baby milestones is increased communication.
Your baby will start to babble and make cooing sounds. They may also start to laugh and cry more often. You may even notice your baby trying to imitate some of the sounds they hear you making. This is a sign that your baby is developing their language skills and beginning to understand communication.
Another 5-month-old milestone is increased physical activity. Your baby will become more active and playful. They will start to reach for toys and attempt to crawl or roll over. You may also notice your baby starting to put weight on their legs as they attempt to stand up. All of these physical activities help your baby develop their gross motor skills.
If you have a 5-month-old baby, keep an eye out for these milestones. It is important to remember that every baby develops at their own pace, so don't worry if your child isn't hitting all of the milestones at exactly 5 months old. If you have any concerns, be sure to speak with your child's doctor.
