Read the body language of the newborn baby

Careful parents will find that putting their hands in the mouth of the newborn baby will start sucking without thinking; put the finger in the palm of the baby, the baby will hold tight immediately; when the light is irradiated, the baby will tighten Close your eyes. Do parents often encounter such interesting reactions from babies? In fact, these are the original reflexes peculiar to newborns, some will last for several months, and some will disappear within a few weeks. Today, come to talk with the child care doctor to talk about the primitive reflexes common to babies.

1. Foraging reflex

When touching the baby's cheek with a finger or the mother's nipple, the baby will turn his head to the same side as if looking for delicious food. This reflex can help the baby find the nipple while breastfeeding. It usually disappears at 4 months of age.

2. Sucking reflex

When the nipple or fingers touch the baby's face or lips, the baby appears to suck. If you do B time out during pregnancy, you may happen to see the baby sucking her fingers. It usually disappears at the age of 4 months.

3. Holding the reflection

Gently put your finger or toy in the palm of the baby and the baby will quickly grab your finger. A few days before birth, the baby's grip is very strong, you can almost hold your finger to suspend the whole body (parents do not try at home, because the baby can not control this reaction, you may release your hand at any time). The grip reflex generally disappears at 5-6 months of age.

4. Step reflection

When the newborn parents hold the baby's armpit with their hands, when one foot falls on a flat surface, you can find that the baby's other foot starts to move, and it seems to start practicing "walking". The step reflex generally disappears at the age of 2 months, and then reappears around 1 year old, but is replaced by autonomous learning behavior.

5. Embrace reflection

Parents can often observe that when the baby's head suddenly changes posture or leans back, or is frightened by the noise, the baby will suddenly appear that the arms are stretched to the sides, the hands are spread out, and then the arms are quickly retracted and hugged in front of the chest. Then you might cry. Babies in confinement often experience hug reflexes, which usually disappear around 4 months of age.

6. Neck tension reflex

Novice parents may notice that when the baby's head is turned to one side, the baby's arm on the same side may be straightened, and the opposite arm will bend, looking like a fencing movement. However, don’t panic even if the parents don’t notice this phenomenon, because when the baby cries or is disturbed, the neck tension reflex may not appear. It usually disappears at 3-4 months of age.

The primitive reflex and birth of a newborn baby is a stable response of humans to the external environment, which can help the baby to obtain the most basic survival skills. When the frontal lobe of the brain begins to develop, the original reflex gradually fades. If the original reflex does not appear or the original reflex disappears, it may be a manifestation of abnormal development of the nervous system. When taking care of your baby, Bao Da Bao Bao Mom usually pays more attention to observe the baby's development and reflexive posture, regular physical examination, if you find abnormalities, you should go to the hospital for evaluation and inspection in time.
