Babies can hold each other vertically every month
Parents know that there is a disadvantage to horizontal hugs-it affects the child’s intellectual development. Children who hug them can only see the ceiling, and they cannot see changes in surrounding objects like children in vertical hugs, which stimulates nerve development in the brain.
However, prematurely holding the baby vertically is also not conducive to the development of the baby’s cervical spine.
How old can a baby be in the arms?
Generally, when children can take the initiative to stabilize their heads, adults should try to hold them vertically. This time is usually 80 days to 3 months.
The cervical spine of a baby within 3 months has not been fully developed, for example, the muscles are not very strong and cannot support his head well.
It is recommended that mothers hold the baby within 3 months, it is best to take a lying position and try not to hold it vertically.
If you have to hold your baby upright because of slaps after eating milk, etc., you must carefully support the baby’s head to give the baby a strong support.
In this way, the baby’s cervical spine will not be injured by holding it vertically.
When the baby is three months old, the mother can hold the baby in a vertical hug.
Several vertical postures: 1. The child’s hip is leaning on the adult’s abdomen, the adult holds one hand on the child’s abdomen, and the other hand holds forward, the child’s head rests on the adult’s tibia;The adult holds the child’s chest in one hand and the child’s head in the other hand. The child can look around from the front of the adult; 3. The child and the adult face to face, and the child on both hands of the adult is convenient for the child andEveryone communicate.
Precautions for the baby to hold it vertically: Don’t take too long to avoid tens of thousands of spine deformities.
0-3 months babies need to carry out vertical hug exercises. Newborn babies have the potential to exercise, but they must be exercised to stimulate their natural potential.
If lack of exercise or exercise lags, the direct consequences are stunting and slow action.
Parents can carry out science and carry out gradual vertical hug exercises for the baby at the age of 0-3 months, which can not only make the exercise gentle, but also ensure the effect of the exercise.
1, prone exercises look up.
In some hospitals, the baby can practice raising his head on his stomach on the second day of birth. Babies usually can raise their head to a certain height because of instinct. If he is tired, he will naturally lie on his stomach and do not have to worry too much., But still has the ability to protect itself.
Head-up exercises can effectively exercise your baby’s large neck muscles and make his neck soften and harden slowly.
This will establish the foundation for a vertical hug.
2, vertical hug exercises: After a month of lying down and head-up exercises, in the second month, we can hug vertically and let him continue to exercise the big neck muscles.
The mother can support the baby’s head and chest with two hands, hold the baby upright, take the child indoors or above to see the surroundings, and the father is also there to guide the baby to observe various things around him.And accompanied by gentle children’s language, the baby’s attention and interest in various things.
This exercise is mainly to help the baby exercise his child’s adaptive support. In addition, this activity can also help the baby understand his surroundings and open up the baby’s vision.
Because 0-3 baby’s skeletal development is still relatively poor, whether it is lying on the head up exercises or vertical hug exercises, can not be repeated repeatedly, you can only practice for 1-2 minutes each time, observe the baby’s mental state to determine how much exercise every dayTimes.
After each exercise, let the baby rest on his back in bed for a while, and then gently touch the baby’s back with his hands to relax the hip muscles, while letting the baby feel the caress of the parents.
