Spring for newborns
One of the external indicators of normal child development for pediatricians, neurologists and other children’s specialists is the fontanel in newborn children. It is a small soft pulsating area on the baby’s head, under which the brain tissue is close enough. The surface of the fontanel is covered with a dense film with a small fluff.
- The neonatal delivery of the newborn greatly facilitates the process of delivery, both for the baby and for the mother. Passing the birth canal, the bones of the skull shrink, and therefore the head of the newborn looks very elongated for the first time after the birth. Then the shape of the head is restored;
- The presence of fontanel provides optimal spatial conditions for normal growth of the brain at the rate that is inherent in nature;
- Rodnichok is involved in the processes of regulation of heat exchange of the baby and the environment. If the temperature of the child’s body exceeds 38 degrees, then through the fontanel, the brain tissue is naturally cooled;
- Due to the ability to shrink the fontanel can perform the function of a shock absorber in the event of an accidental fall of the child.
Many are very much afraid to somehow damage the fontanel. Remember! ; this is almost impossible. Despite the apparent softness of the fontanel, it is very durable, and it is impossible to damage it with usual manipulations (washing, bathing, combing, etc.).
