How to judge the brain development of a newborn baby?
The brain is the “command” of the human body. If there is something wrong with the brain, the mental development of the minor is affected.
Serious people have no way to survive, so whether human brain development is normal has always received great attention.
Newborn babies do not have the ability to speak and act, and it is easy to determine whether their brain development is normal.
Studies have shown that there are some indirect methods that can help us make preliminary judgments about the development of a baby’s brain.
From birth, newborns have become some instinctual nerve reflexes. These reflexes only exist for a certain period of time. If these reflexes do not appear after birth, or do not disappear when they should disappear, it indicates that the baby’s brain development may be possible.There is a problem.
This kind of reflection mainly has the following types, young mothers, may wish to use these methods to observe their newborn baby.
The mouth opening reflex puts the baby on its back. You fix the baby’s wrist with the middle finger and ring finger of both hands, and then press the palm of the baby’s palm with the thumb. At this time, the baby immediately responds to the mouth opening.
This reflex appears immediately after birth and lasts for 4-6 weeks. It begins to disappear in 2 months. If it does not disappear for more than 3 months, it indicates that there is brain damage.
Foraging reflexes, you can touch your baby’s mouth corners and upper and lower lips with your fingers or nipples. At this time, the baby will open its mouth and turn to the stimulating side, and look for nipples up and down, left and right, showing that it wants to eat, and the head also shows flexion.Radial lateral movement.
Under normal circumstances, this kind of reflection appears after the baby is born, disappears about 1 month, it is not easy to elicit after fullness, and it is hyperactive when living.
Touch the baby’s lips with the nipple or other objects during sucking reflex, or put the nipple in the baby’s mouth, which can cause the baby to appear the sucking action of the coordinated movement of the mouth, lips, and tongue, and even the baby’s small hand will involuntarily grasp the nipple.
This reflection appears right after the baby is born, 2?
About 4 months was replaced by active eating and disappeared.
It is not easy to elicit after eating, and it is hyperactive when obese.
This reflection is attenuated or disappeared, mostly for premature babies, with asphyxia and traumatic brainstem damage after birth.
The hand grip reflex can make the baby lie on its back, and the upper limbs are in a semi-flexed state. Use your thumb to insert the baby’s palm from the side of the little finger into the palm of the baby and press the palm of your hand. At this time, the baby’s fingers will immediately bend and hold your fingers.Fingers, baby can be pulled up briefly.
This reflection is obvious after birth and gradually fades after 2 months.
After 3-4 months, it was replaced by conscious grasping movement and disappeared.
If it still exists after 5-6 months, it is mostly brain damage.
Hug the reflex to let the baby lie on his back, support his head and neck, and then suddenly lower the baby’s head so that the head flexes 10-15 degrees behind the neck; or tap the mattress near the baby to make a sound; or lightly with his fingersBounce the soles of the baby’s feet; or use both hands to pull the baby’s two hands, and then suddenly release, the baby will have this reflection: the upper limbs are symmetrically extended and abducted, the hands are fanned out, and then the upper limbs are flexed and embraced in the chest.The baby has a frightened expression or is crying upset.
This reflection occurs over a period of 0-3 months and disappears at 3-4 months.
If this reflex is weakened or negative, it means that the brainstem is inferior; if left-right asymmetry or distortion does not appear, it suggests brachial plexus injury or clavicle fracture.
If this reflex does not disappear for more than 6 months, it is evidence of cerebral palsy and brain injury diseases. The plantar reflex allows the baby to lie on his back, the lower limbs are slightly flexed, and the whole body is relaxed.Swipe the outside of the foot forward and turn when you reach the root of the little toe, which can cause the baby’s toenails to yield, and the remaining 4 toes flex and spread out in a fan shape.
This reflection appears at 0?
1 year old, disappears 6-12 months after birth.
If the baby has obvious high-risk factors, after 1 year of age, the dorsiflexion of the thumb and the other four toes are fan-shaped, which is a pathological reflex.
Is the basis for the diagnosis of cerebral palsy.
Moving walking reflects you holding your baby under his arm.
It is helpful to be in bed initially, leaning forward slightly, and your baby will move naturally.
This reflection appears after the baby is born and disappears after 1-2 months.
When you do these tests for your baby, if your baby has these reflections in the appropriate cycle.
Then you can basically rest assured, which shows that the baby’s brain development is basically normal.
Otherwise, you should seek medical treatment in time to find the cause.
