How to understand a baby?
Despite the fact that the science of recognizing non-innate thoughts seems completely incomprehensible, in fact, everything is much simpler. This is absolutely sure the women who bring up the second child. Pervodkam difficult: to get used to the baby, wake up their maternal instinct, try to feel the crumbs. But how to do it, if he is still unable to understand what he needs?
In fact, to panic is completely pointless. Firstly, the baby intuitively feels any insecurity to her mother, and therefore becomes even more restless. Secondly, nature has provided many nuances in the life and development of an infant. We will tell you how to understand a baby and become the most calm mother.
Dry, full, warm
In the first month of a baby’s life (provided that he was born without pathologies), the main rule for him is dry, full, warm. If these three factors are observed, he will sleep sweetly and will not disturb anyone. Accordingly, if he suddenly burst into tears, either hungry, or wet, or cold.
If the last two violations to recognize completely obvious in wet diapers, or by touching the crumbs, then not all moms deal with hunger. It happens that the baby hangs on the chest for more than half an hour, and does not cease to be capricious.
How to understand that the child is full
There are several simple ways to recognize malnutrition in a baby. The first is the degree of the psycho-emotional state of the child. If he is full, there will be neither whims nor his bad mood. The second factor is the weight of the baby. For a week, the child should add an average of 125 grams. Otherwise, the baby's milk is not enough. Finally, the third factor is the frequency of urination of the infant. A full man in a day fills 6-7 diapers. Here's how to figure out if a child is eating up.
Accordingly, in order to provide the baby with proper feeding, experts advise putting the baby on the chest on demand. True, the desire to have a snack baby is not always reported cry. On the contrary, crying is the most extreme and last measure of a baby to report on hunger. To help mom there are additional signs pointing to an empty stomach of a son or daughter. Among them:
- At the crumbs muscles are strained: cams are compressed and arms in elbows are bent.
- Scarce spins, arches his back and turns.
- Baby makes sounds. They are often mistaken for “conversation”, but often this is a message about wanting to stick to the chest.
- The crumb pulls hands in a mouth (sometimes it occurs even in a dream) and tries to suck them.
How to understand how a child lies
Until the little ones have learned to roll over on their side (this happens in 2.5-4 months), the mother will have to control the position of the lying baby. Experts say: in no case, you can not leave the baby sleeping on his back. This is extremely dangerous for the crumbs, especially if he ate well before bedtime. The fact is that babies often burp, and if this happens in a dream, and the baby will sleep on the back, he can choke.
The ideal position of a reclining child is on its side or half-side. In this case, the gastric masses will not fill the respiratory tract, and come out through the mouth. By the way, among pediatricians there are those who recommend putting the babies to sleep on the tummy, without using any pillows. In this case, the baby does not exactly choke, in addition, it will train the muscles of the back. The tummy in this position also hurts less.
How to understand that a child is sick

- Increased body temperature. In healthy babies, it ranges from 36 to 37 degrees.
- Rapid breathing. 50 breaths per minute is considered to be the norm in a baby’s first year of life.
- Increased or slow pulse. Normally up to a year is 140 beats per minute.
- The nature of breathing: in a sick baby it is uneven, deep, sometimes with wheezing
- The presence of cough. In a sick baby, it can be frequent and long, sometimes with sputum.
