When the child starts to hold the head, kids

How scary is the first time to take the hands of a newborn! He seems so fragile and unprotected! I remember the fear with which we took our son in our arms when we arrived from the hospital. But, literally through the day, everything returned to normal.

What you need to know

The difficulty of dealing with a newborn is that he still has weak neck muscles and joints. The main thing is to know some things:

one. Correctly place your hands under the body of the child: one palm goes under the back and bottom of the baby, the second – under the head.

2 It is necessary to hold the child compactly: the handles of the legs should be pressed to the body, and not hang.

3 When we hold the child with a post, be sure to support him back.

The first month


Learning to hold one’s head is one of the first tasks ahead of the newborn. I gave birth to my second child with a decent break after the first. All the knowledge about children has safely disappeared from my head. It is good that I write down all our achievements.

The first thing that interested me was when the son would have to keep his head on his own. I was sure that a month. At this age, of course, the muscles of the neck of his son grew stronger, but still the head was still reeling. So to say that in 1 month he held his head, it is impossible.

The doctor advised more often to spread on the child’s belly. But my son didn’t like it at all. For more often, I did not have enough patience. Listening to his screams (and I must say that the nature did not offend him with his vocal cords) – one had to have iron nerves.

I learned to hold my head – life became more interesting.


How good it is when a child can be held upright without holding his head! She always thought that holding a ten-twelve-kilogram one-year-old baby is much easier than a four-kilogram newborn.

When son was two months, we had a difficult period: it was hot outside, he didn’t want to sleep in a carriage, he cried. If he slept, he quickly woke up. I had to walk with him in my arms. I remember how we walked along the avenue, watching the leaves of trees fluttering in the wind. They met my father from work in his arms too. At that time he was already holding his head quite tolerably. But my palm was still on guard – at the back of the head.

AT three months we walked on the playground, watching the children play. Here, already the head of the son kept well. But all the same, and at this age, the child had to be treated very carefully, without sudden movements. The muscles of his neck are not yet fully strengthened.

Friend’s experience


We have familiar twins. They are three months older than my son. I watched them from the side. It was interesting how they develop and learn new skills. When we were one month old, the mother of these children was walking them in kangaroo carriers (her grandmother helped her). I also could not wait to take a walk with my son. The mother of the twins said that for this they were waiting for the children to begin to confidently hold their heads.

But I did not dare to go on such walks in my backpack, although we bought it. When the son was confidently holding his head, autumn came. Now I didn’t need to walk on my hands, as my son slept well in a wheelchair in the cool. Yes, and I was afraid that it was harmful for the back of a four-month baby.

What are the problems


one. Increased muscle tone. One of my friends was glad how early her child began to hold her head. It turned out that there was nothing to be happy about: they had problems in the neurological part. Fortunately, the child was cured.

2Torticollis. I just read about it. This is also connected with the tone of the muscles of the neck, on one side only. Again, the main thing to notice. Everything is treated. We just watched so that the child did not track his head on one side. I had to try.

3 Weak muscle tone. Children with such a tone are unlikely to hold their heads for three months. Again – to the neuropathologist!

findings


Approximate terms of development of the child exist. But it is better not to focus on them much, but to watch the child. In the first year of life a child can get out of various diseases. The main thing is to consult a good doctor in time.
