Returning from the hospital, the young mother finally gets the opportunity to carefully examine and study her baby. Of the many questions that arise in her at first, most concern the appearance of the baby.
Pose of the embryo
Most of all young moms are confused by the unusual posture of the newborn: the arms are bent at the elbows, the legs are in the knees and are pressed to the tummy, the fingers are clenched into fists. The fact is that by the end of pregnancy the baby becomes cramped in the uterus and is forced to press limbs. As a result, there is a physiological increase in the tone of flexor muscles, which persists for some time after birth. As the baby grows physiological hypertonic muscle passes independently. To reduce it, from the tenth day of life, you can gently stroke the handles and legs of crumbs.Skin tone
Often in newborns, the skin acquires an unusual shade. Do not worry: it is usually a temporary phenomenon that passes by itself. On the baby's body, there were red spots that do not bother him? This is how the blood supply system manifests itself, which learns to work in new conditions. In a couple of days, when the "training" is over, the specks will disappear.
Immediately after the birth of the pen and legs, crumbs can acquire a cyanotic shade and be cool by touch. The reason is insufficient supply of blood to the extremities and imperfection of thermoregulation. To keep the baby warm, put on it socks and gloves.
In the first 2-3 days of life, half of the children develop physiological jaundice. If after the blood test is in order, there's nothing to worry about.
To panic it is not necessary and in that case if at the kid the skin is flaky, and on a forehead and a nose yellowish points were formed. This milium is a physiological phenomenon that arises from the imperfect work of the sebaceous glands. It goes away in a few weeks.
It happens, on the forehead, nape and bridge of the nose there are "vascular asterisks", or, in another way, - telangiectasia. This is the local extension of the subcutaneous capillaries (small vessels). It does not require treatment and by 1-1,5 years passes independently.Light fluff
On the skin of a newborn, young parents can discover other "ornaments". For example, sometimes a pretty hard fuzz.
Many parents are surprised and even frightened when they detect fluff on the body. Usually hairs cover the back, shoulders, forehead and even ears. And often this vegetation is quite tough to the touch. Experiencing in this regard is not necessary: in the first two weeks, this phenomenon is among the physiological, especially since the hair voloski very quickly fall out. It is worth worrying if from the moment the crumb appeared, 15 days passed, and the hair on his body still did not disappear. It can go about hereditary diseases. To confirm or refute fears, consultations of the neurologist and genetics are needed.15 feats of the newborn Hygiene without extremes 6 reasons for quarrels among young parents
