The baby’s smart brain is “fed” out. Breastfeeding is essential, because taurine contained in breast milk can not only promote the proliferation of brain cells, but also promote the formation of neural cell networks and prolong the survival time of nerve cells. Therefore, taurine in breast milk plays an important role in the brain development of the baby.

Some experts also believe that breast milk may contain a “smart hormone” that promotes the accelerated development of the brain, which has the effect of increasing the intelligence of the baby. Babies who insist on breastfeeding will have stronger resistance, are less likely to get sick, and will be smarter. The study found that vegetables are rich in vitamin B, vitamin C and vitamin E, which are essential for normal brain development, and are easily absorbed by the intestines. So, Let vegetables be the food that your baby likes. If the baby eat a lot of vegetables, it will increase the level of vitamin C in the blood. Experts have used hundreds of children as research subjects and found that children with vitamin C of 1.1 mg per 100 ml of blood have an IQ of 5 points higher than others. It can be seen that eating more vegetables will be beneficial to the normal growth and development of the baby’s brain. Research experts point out that vegetables are the smart energy source for children. The study found:

  • Fish meat is rich in unsaturated fatty acids, calcium, iron, vitamin B12 and other ingredients, which are essential nutrients for brain cell development. Therefore, eating fish and eating fish-rich foods is very important for baby’s brain development, especially in the early stages of development.
  • The protein in eggs is very good and the absorption rate is also high.The lecithin in the egg yolk passes through the digestive enzymes in the intestines. And the released choline can directly enter the brain, and combine with acetic acid to form a neurotransmitter, which is beneficial to mental development and improve memory. At the same time, the iron and phosphorus content in the egg yolk is more, which contributes to brain development.
  • Animal internal organs mainly refer to the brain, heart, liver and kidney. They are rich in proteins, lipids, etc., which are essential nutrients for brain development.
  • Soybean and its products are rich in high-quality plant protein. Soybean oil is also rich in a variety of unsaturated fatty acids and phospholipids, which is beneficial to brain development.
  • Vegetables, fruits and walnuts are rich in vitamins A, B, C, E, etc., especially the fatty acids of walnut kernels, which are essential nutrients for brain cells. Regular consumption not only promotes brain development, but also improves brain function and vitality. Prevent cranial nerve function disorders.

  • Milk is rich in seven major nutrients, such as lactose, rich vitamins and tryptophan, which play an important role in the formation and development of the brain and nerves. After an empty stomach, give your baby a nutritious breakfast every day. Every organ of the body, including the brain, needs to supply with foods rich in carbohydrates, protein, vitamins and trace elements. At this time, the nutrient utilization rate is higher than other two meals.

The survey showed that children who did not eat breakfast usually had significant differences in memory compared with children who ate breakfast. A study also showed that children who did not eat breakfast had an IQ score that was 10%-15% lower than those who insisted on eating breakfast. A smart mother must give her baby a good habit of eating breakfast, because breakfast is like a potion. Frequent overeating will cause a large amount of blood to accumulate in the gastrointestinal tract, causing cerebral ischemia, hypoxia, and impeding brain function, leading to a decline in IQ. To make matters worse, satiety is also easy to induce a growth factor called fibroblasts, which grows tens of thousands of times in the brain, making the brain cells often in an ischemic, hypoxic state. The function of nerve cells in the brain that is responsible for language, memory, thinking and other activities is inhibited and improperly developed, thereby reducing intelligence. Eating moderately can not only prevent the hidden dangers of diabetes, high blood pressure, hyperlipidemia, etc., but also promote the baby’s intellectual development. Medical experts point out that: the baby maintains a moderate weight, obesity will cause a lot of fat into the brain, squeeze the sulcus back, thereby hindering the formation of nerve fiber hyperplasia and brain sulcus. Finally, the cerebral cortex becomes smooth, neural network Simple, forming an “obese brain.” In addition, the breathing rate of children who are overweight will also shrink, which will easily lead to insufficient oxygen supply in the body, causing hypoxia in brain cells, which will affect mental development. Compared with normal-weight children, obese children’s IQ, especially operational IQ, but also the ability to see, hear, and receive knowledge are at a low level.

The baby of 1~3 months seems to understand nothing. Feeding, licking, bathing, and touching every day, in addition to big eyes and small eyes, what else can you do?

1.Listen and say children’s songs

Choose some simple and interesting children’s songs to tell the children every day that the last word of each sentence should be easy to pronounce, or you can record it to your child. It is best to have expressions and movements when listening to children’s songs. Mothers can shake their children and walk around with their children rhythmically.

Try to have your child imitate after repeating it many times. Children’s participation not only promotes their understanding of gestures and expressions, but also increases their interest. I know to play with small animals, vehicles and other image toys, let the children know the name of the toy.

2.Parents say baby language

The parents of newborn babies like to talk to their children with the words “un-gu-gu” and “bu-be-bu”. These words seem to be meaningless in the eyes of others, but they actually help the baby’s brain development. When the baby hears the parents consciously talking to them, the brain becomes more active.

When the child is awake, sing or chat with him, call his name, use simple, vivid words. Exaggerated reactions to the child’s expressions, voices, and body movements. He may not seem to respond, but you still have to do something. Brain filling, “Baby, mom is going to change diapers for you now.” “Baby, I am a mother, mom~mother~”, “Yeah, are you hungry, how about we eat a milk?”

3.Caress

Studies have shown that the first communication that the baby gets and the first language development are through the skin. Therefore, attention and touch are a kind of child’s need, and it is also a language way for children to feel others. It is a better way of communication. It is not only the performance of parents’ care and care for children, but also the psychological needs of children’s “skin hunger”, so that children can enjoy the silent love of their parents. Among the various methods of developing early infant intelligence, the best way to promote brain development is to caress.

4.Give him a sense of security and happiness

Embrace the child more, give him enough physical contact, and let him continue to feel the warmth of his parents and caregivers. Give him a safe environment and don’t let the child undergo stress or trauma, both physically and psychologically. Pay attention to your child’s emotional changes and understand some of the signals he sends. Such a small child will not be spoiled, and any of his needs should be responded to.

5.How to bring him to play?

Give your child some toys that are safe, such as colorful rattles, teether, and cloth toys, even if he doesn’t play. Let him see some picture books and family albums. If he is not interested, don’t be stubborn. Children of this age are very interested in faces, you can play games with your children. Hanging a soft mirror on the side of the crib, he also likes to see himself through the mirror.

Create a safe environment for your child to explore and roam, and enjoy a “floor time” with him every day. Encourage your child to play with blocks and soft toys to help develop his hand-eye coordination, fine movements and sense of accomplishment. Choose the right but not expensive toys, sometimes children prefer the common items at home. Paying more attention to children is more important than giving toys.
Play hide-and-seek or clap hands with your child to stimulate child’s memory. Bring children to other children and adults.

Language and cognitive ability

Sing or chat with children as they dress, bathe, feed, play, walk, and ride. Your child may not understand what you are saying, but by listening to you, his language skills will be cultivated. If the child does not seem to hear or can’t make a sound, take him to the doctor. Talk to your child face to face. If he makes a sound, you can encourage him by imitating his voice. Telling the story to the child every day, for him, the voice of the parents is “good voice of China.” It won’t take long for him to be happy to “see” the picture book. If you want to speak a foreign language, you can.

 

 

  • 10-12 month baby feeding:

In the 10-12 months of babies, the majority of the daily nutrition comes from complementary foods. Therefore, under the premise that the baby learns to chew food and learn to grind the food with the gums, it is added to the food supplement twice a day and gradually becomes the third food supplement. But to control the baby’s meal time, limited to 20 to 30 minutes. During this period, we should pay attention to the nutritional balance of the baby, and we must evenly balance the diet. Since the individual differences of the baby have become more and more obvious at this time, as long as the food that the baby likes to eat is okay, do not compare with other infants. Due to the gradual addition of the number of complementary foods and the amount of food, the amount of milk consumed by the baby can be gradually reduced from 10 to 12 months. Under normal circumstances, the baby’s food intake for 10 to 12 months is 1/3 to 1/2 of the adult’s food intake. The food for each meal is about half a small bowl. It is enough to add some milk to the baby.

Baby food preparation for 10 to 12 months don’t need to make into mud or paste like previous months. Some vegetables can be cut into silk or thin slices. Because of the constant chewing training, the baby has already bitten the food with the gums at this time, and after a period of chewing food, the baby has not liked the soft food or semi-liquid food. Due to the change in meals, the interval between meals is longer, so can eat a small amount of snacks, but pay attention to the nutritional value and digestibility of the snacks.

  • 10-12 month baby brain development:

Emotional development: As time goes by, the child’s self-concept becomes more mature, likes to be praised, and proactively close to the children. You used to expect him to be obedient when he was comfortable, but now it is difficult to do so, he will express his needs in his own way. At this time, the baby has been able to perform the simple request made by the adult. He will interact with adults with facial expressions, simple language and movements. Children can try to give toys to others in this period. The mood also began to be affected by the mood of the mother. Like to socialize with adults and imitate adult behavior.

Language development: At this time, the baby can accurately understand the meaning of simple words. Under the reminder of adults, he will call father and mother, grandma, aunt, etc.; There will be some actions that express the meaning of the word, such as erecting a finger to indicate that one year old; can imitate the voice of an adult and speak some simple words. At this time, although the child speaks less, he can express his wishes and requirements with words and begin to communicate with others in language. Imitating and speaking some words, the “sound” that is emitted begins to have a certain specific meaning, which is the characteristic of the children’s language pronunciation at this stage.

What should parents do?

  1. Interact with people. At this time, the baby has a certain ability to move, has a wider interest in the surrounding world, has social needs and strong curiosity.

  2. Guide children to actively pronounce and imitate pronunciation in daily life, and actively create a good language environment for babies. Let the children learn to use the “uncle”, “auntie”, “brother”, “sister” to hello to the surrounding people. If the adult asks “What is this?” Let the child answer. Encourage the child to imitate the expression and voice of the parents. When he succeeds, we can kiss him and encourage him happily.

 

  • 0-3 months baby feeding:

Because the organ function of newborn babies is not yet fully developed, the ability to digest and absorb is also weak, so parents should pay special attention to feeding newborn babies.

1.Breastfeeding

Newborns recommend breastfeeding, breast milk is rich in nutrients, it can enhance children’s resistance, and it is important for baby growth and development. Breastfeeding is fed by the need of the infant and does not require regular quantitative feeding. Breastfeeding does not require water.

2.Milk feeding

Mixed feeding and artificial feeding, choose formula milk powder, milk powder should be prepared according to the proportion, milk powder can’t be too thick or too thin. Note that the bottle should be disinfected in time. The baby is not finished once and should not be left for the next time for milk .

Feeding Tips:

  1. Newborns can’t easily change the brand of milk powder. The formula of each brand of milk powder is different.The newborns digestive system is still not perfect, and changing the milk powder will cause the baby to adapt.
  2. Make sure your newborn baby has 20 hours of sleep every day.
  3. Take vitamin D after 14 days of birth.
  4. When feeding milk, pay attention to water temperature and prevent burns.
  • 0-3 month baby’s body development

Physiological index: At three months, the baby boy weighed 4.1 to 7.7 kg, and the length was 55.8 to 66.4 cm; the baby girl was 3.9 to 7.0 cm and the length was 54.6 to 64.5 cm.

Sleep index: Sufficient sleep is one of the prerequisites for the health of newborns and infants. The younger the age, the longer the sleep time, and the baby can sleep for about 20 hours every day within a few days after birth. In addition to eating milk, crying, and defecation, it is basically in a sleep state.

Physical fitness index: In the first few months, the neck muscles became stronger. At first, the baby can only lift his head for a few seconds. The muscles increase each time when the head is raised. By 3 months of age, babies can lift their heads and support their forearms. At this stage, arm and hand movements develop rapidly. Once a clenched fist, now an open hand grabs and hits the object. Infants perceive their hands by placing them in front of their faces and putting them in the mouth. By the end of this period, most babies have reached the following milestones:

  1. Support the head and upper body, stretch the legs and kick
  2. Turn hands on and off , pull it into your mouth
  3. Grab and shake the toy and wave on the shaking object
  4. Follow the eye to move the object and turn your head to face the stimulus
  • 0-3 month brain development:

During this period, the baby’s hearing development is fully mature, he will pay close attention to human voices and will be sensitive to noise. At this age, the child not only has better hearing, but also remembers some of the sounds he hears. He turns his head to familiar voices and language.

Slowly the baby will “see” the object, starting with a short time to stare, even without a focal length, and will not move with the object, the time of blinking will gradually become longer and Will widen eyes. The eyes will become more sensitive and will move with the object.

He is also very sensitive to taste and smell. I like the sweet taste and avoid the bitter or sour smell. He can recognize mother’s milk smell on the weekend of the first week. Babies are also very sensitive to the way that others touch and wrap, prefer a soft rather than rough feeling, don’t like rude feelings. Understand your temper and feelings through your touch before he can understand what you are saying.

What parents can do?

Here are some very simple things you can do with your baby around this time to help her development:

  • Respond to crying: Sometimes babies will cry because something is making them uncomfortable. for example, their nappy is wet , or they’re hungry, or the light is too bright. When you respond to these things, you make your baby feel more comfortable and safe. Cuddle and kiss your baby. This help you baby learn to trust you and rely on you. Even when you don’t know why they are crying , it’s important to comfort your baby during this time. Get to know you baby’s cries. Picking them up , cuddle them , or talk to them in a smoothing voice. Look at your baby’s face while he or she looks at you.
  • Play together:the best toy for your baby is you. Playing with you help your newborn to feel love and secure, and feeling loved and secure helps them develop and learn. Talking and reading to your baby, singing songs like “Twinkle twinkle little star” or other songs you know or playing games are just some of the many ways you can play with your newborn . For older babies, offer a variety of toys, one at a time. Let your baby copy you, and place him in different positions on the floor. So, he can explore in different ways.
  • Smile at your baby. when your baby sees you smile, it releases chemicals in their body that make them feel good . It also helps their brain grow. Smiling plays a part in the connecting and attachment processes.It helps your baby feel secure and safe,and learn about the world .
  • Tummy time: spending some time playing on their tummy each day builds your baby’shead, neck and upper body

strength. They need this strength for lifting their head and for movements they will do later on,like crawling and

pulling up to stand.

  • Baby massage: baby massage is a great way to connect with baby. It can also be relaxing and smoothing if your newborn is cranky. Try it in a warm room after baby has had his bath .
