Pregnancy Diet Plan

The first trimester is very important for the mother and the baby. For most women it is common to find out about their pregnancy after they have missed their menstrual cycle.

That is why most women find out that they are pregnant only after one month of pregnancy.

Mothering As A Holding Environment For The Child

Infants are beginning to develop the ability to control their behavior, or self-regulate, through their sleeping, feeding, and responses to stress in their environments. This process begins shortly after birth. Part of the mothering role is to support and assist the infant in developing self-regulatory behavior. In observing parenting practices in relation to sleep, it has been established that in the first three months most infants are not put down to sleep until they are already fully asleep, reflecting the belief that infants need help in getting to sleep (Johnson, 1991). By 3 months of age, infants are put down for sleep by their parents while they are still awake, giving the infant a chance to regulate this basic process of self-soothing and putting one's self to sleep. Infants provided with the opportunity to self-soothe learn to get to sleep and stay asleep versus infants who are always put to sleep by their parents. Infants who are put to bed awake also are encouraged by...

Developing Domains in Infancy

Physical stature and psychomotor abilities. Infancy is a time of great physical and nervous system development. Growth through the first 2 postnatal years is manifest even on casual observation because of its magnitude and scope. On average, newborns measure approximately 49-50 cm and weigh approximately 3.4-3.5 kg. In the year after birth, babies grow half their birth length and their weight approximately triples (National Center for Health Statistics, 2001). Thesephysical changes are paralleled by signal advances in motor skills. Consider the eagerness with which parents await their child's first step. This achievement signifies an important stage in infant independence, permitting new means of exploring the environment and of determining when and how much time infants spend near their parents. By walking, the baby asserts individuality, maturity, and self-mindedness. These changes, in turn, affect the ways in which parents treat the child How parents organize the baby's physical...

Infant Effects

Some physical features of infancy probably affect parents everywhere in similar ways. By the conclusion of the first trimester, fetuses are felt to move in utero (quickening), and soon after (with support) fetuses may survive outside the womb (viability). These are significant markers in the life of the child and in the lives and psyches of the child's parents. After birth, the infant's nature as well as certain infant actions are likely to influence parenting. The newborn has a large head dominated by a disproportionately large forehead, widely spaced sizeable eyes, a small and snub nose, an exaggeratedly round face, and a small chin. The ethologist Konrad Lorenz (1935 1970) argued that these physiognomic features of babyishness provoke adults to express reflexively nurturant reactions toward babies even across different species (Alley, 1981,1983). Under ordinary conditions, specific infant behaviors elicit caregiving or other specific responses from parents (Bell and Harper, 1977...

Conclusions

In our culture, there was a great deal of involvement of the extended family in the early 1900s. By midcentury, in the 1950s, this involvement narrowed as young parents and families became more mobile and often moved out of the areas where they had the greatest amount of support. Nearing the end of the twentieth century, we saw a move to this increased involvement of others, or allomothering. This trend continues today, with increased support from extended family immediately after birth and a large shift of the care of infants to allomothers in the form of childcare. Recent estimates are that 74 of children under 1 year of age are in childcare (National Research Council and Institute of Medicine, 2000).
