What are the characteristics of your child's early development
Too early development, as well as later, shouldTo alert parents. The fact is that at the time of birth the formation of the brain is far from complete, most of its departments will mature for many months and even years. The process is extremely complex, finely balanced, it obeys a special schedule embedded in our genetic code. However, if some area of the brain, for example, responsible for crawling or walking, for one reason or another becomes more active ahead of time, this can interfere with the normal development of its lower divisions. For example, the trunk, which is responsible for extremely important nerve functions, including regulation of excitation and inhibition, sleep and wakefulness control, sensitivity to pain, spatial coordination, etc. In other words, in the early beginning to sit, crawl or walk the baby can with Time there are quite serious problems. Very often, such children are overly emotional, sleep poorly, confuse day with night, at preschool and school age experience difficulties with the development of writing and reading, etc. What are the characteristics of your child's early development - the topic of the article.
You should show the baby to a neurologist if he:
• a few weeks before the norm starts to hold the head (and even more - throws it back);
• at 3-4 months trying to lean on the legs and get up in the "kangaroo" or on the hands of the parents (especially if the baby is standing on the socks or resting on only one leg).
This, of course, does not mean that the outstripping developmentIs necessarily associated with some kind of pathology. It can be caused by a family predisposition, besides modern infants not fastened with diapers develop significantly faster in the first months of life than a few decades ago. And, of course, no one talks about the need to keep a crumb in the wheelchair or crib trying to crawl or walk! But still it is worth remembering a few important rules that will help to compensate for the costs of rapid development. Never stimulate the motor activity of a child before time: do not put it in pillows, do not put it on the legs, do not teach to walk in the walker.
If the baby learns this or that motorFunction (crawling, sitting, walking) is noticeably earlier than the norm, go for a full examination with a neurologist. "Early" children need a massage to help relieve excessive muscle tension. To compensate for muscle overload, small flights to very flights in the infants pool. If the child "skipped" some stage of development (started to get up, unable to sit down, went without crawling), try to interest him with games and activities that would help to form the missed skill. Especially it concerns crawling. Particular attention should be paid to the prevention of rickets: unrelieved baby bones are subjected to excessive loads, and rickets can lead to deformity. Accelerated development of the child can be directly related to certain ailments of your baby's body. Therefore, the health of the child should be treated closely, and regularly monitored in a children's clinic.
