Child Health and Development

Child health and development is a very important aspect that all parents need to have a fair idea about.

It is a fact that an infant cannot say anything before a certain age. Therefore, you must be careful about the health as well as all-round development of your baby especially during this period.

In this newsletter, we would like to concentrate on the important features of the child health development that mark the first six months or so after your baby is born.

It is true that the development of your baby depends mostly on his health. If he is healthy, it will help him cope with the world with ease. He will also be able to pick up things fast. Doctors generally say that you need to take care of your baby's physical health and mental health.

A baby can turn into a well-matured adult if he is physically and mentally strong from childhood. Therefore, you need to take care of your infant. The development of your baby's brain starts when you carry him in the womb. Complete development of the nervous system, hearing system, and vision also takes their due time.

He can also differentiate the tastes of different foods. Child health and development process starts from the day your baby sees the new world. During the first 6 months, your baby responds if someone calls him by his name. He turns his head and eyes as a response to the call. He can differentiate between the voices as well. If the tone of your voice is angry, he can feel it and if it is friendly, he can also sense that accordingly and can differentiate between the two tones.

If you do not take care of your infant, it will be a great risk for him in the future. You need to feed him well and you need to keep him clean and dry.

There lies a close interrelation between child health and development and you need to be quite familiar with these. You can ask any doctor for some able assistance if you think that you do not know how to take care of your baby properly.

The mental health of your child depends on your treatment that you offer him. For instance, doctors say that breast milk is ideal for babies and this can provide the appropriate diet to your baby.

When your baby is at of age of 3 to 6 months, you can notice certain changes in him. It is the early stage when your baby tries to cope with the world. He responds to facial expressions and can differentiate a high pitch and a low pitch sound. You need to follow the right child health and development process for your baby.

That's it for this months newsletter.

See you next month :-)

Warm regards,
