How Much Should a 7-Month-Old Baby Weigh in the Womb?


The 7-month-old baby now slowly begins to prepare for birth. Babies born during this period have a very high chance of survival. Even though lung development is not completed, the newborn baby can breathe.

What is the Physical Development of a 7-Month-Old Baby?

A 7-month-old baby can turn over to prepare for birth. This will help the pregnant mother's lungs relax and breathe easier. In addition, the pregnant woman may need to go to the toilet frequently because the baby turning over compresses the bladder.

Now the baby slowly begins to prepare for birth. Bone development is complete except for the skull. The reason why the skull is not completed is that the baby's head gets stuck while passing through the birth canal. Between 12 and 18 months after birth, the structure called the fontanelle closes. At birth, the fontanel compresses and overlaps, so the structure of the baby's head may be different, but you should not worry. This change in mindset will resolve in a short time.

The baby's eyelashes and eyebrows are now visible in the womb. The baby's swallowing reflex and digestive system are developed. The skin begins to wrinkle as fatty tissue begins to form. The average baby weighs between 600-1300 grams and is 34-40 cm tall. Brain development has accelerated and the baby's brain has become curved.

A bond develops between mother and child and the baby can distinguish the mother's voice.The baby also becomes able to distinguish light. The layer of hair that protects the baby from the cold has disappeared and the baby can now keep its body temperature balanced.
