In this age of looking at faces, who doesn’t want a baby with high facial value? However, many parents have not noticed that some small details in life will affect the baby’s beauty.
Today, Dr. Clove invited Dr. Xu Ying to tell Bao’s parents about the little secrets that affect the baby’s beauty value.
Always pressing your head? Be careful to sleep off your head
The first half of the year after birth is the critical period for the formation of the baby’s small head. If the baby’s head is always pressed in one place, it is easy to cause the head shape to be irregular, deviated or flattened, affecting the shape of the head.
Suggest to let the baby play on his stomach at ordinary times, reduce the time when the head is oppressed. If the bed bell is hung on the crib and the wall is pasted with stickers, the position of the bed bell and stickers should be changed frequently to avoid the baby’s attention always being attracted by one side, often looking to one side, always oppressing one side of the head and causing partial head.
Of course, if the baby has already fallen asleep, parents need not worry too much. Generally, the baby’s head is not serious. When the baby goes to primary school, the head will not be visible.
Only one side of the meal? Be careful [face size]
Parents can recall whether the baby likes to eat with one tooth.
Masticatory muscles, jaws and teeth are the main parts that make up the outline of a child’s face. If the baby often eats only on one side, it is easy to cause asymmetric facial development and even [large and small faces].
Most of the baby’s chewing actions come from imitating the family members around him. It is suggested that parents can chew a piece of chewing gum in their mouth when adding solid food to the baby, while feeding the baby supplementary food, and demonstrate to the baby how to chew food together with the teeth on both sides, so as to slowly cultivate the baby’s correct chewing habits.
Selling cute with crooked heads? Beware of torticollis and strabismus
Your baby often has a crooked head [cute] and feels very cute?
However, Dr. Clove should remind everyone that the baby’s frequent crooked head may be caused by torticollis.
Torticollis is the head and neck deflection caused by excessive contraction of muscles on one side of the neck, which is the main reason for most children under the age of 5 to have head inclination. Parents can touch a relatively hard lump on the neck on the side of the baby’s crooked head, which is formed after muscle contracture.
There are also some babies who always love to be cute with crooked heads, which may be the cause of strabismus.
Once parents find that their children often tilt their heads to one side, they need to pay attention to it. They should tell the doctor when doing health examination and let the doctor check it out to help parents judge.
Open your mouth and breathe? Affect facial development
Children like to open their mouths. Whether in silence or during sleep, the sound of breathing is heavy or accompanied by strong nasal sounds, which is not good breathing.
Doctor Clove should remind parents that the baby will open his mouth and breathe for a long time. Abnormal airflow stimulation will affect the face and oral cavity. The upper jaw will be raised, the chin will move backward, the face will be lengthened, and the teeth will be arranged irregularly.
Once the baby is found to be breathing with open mouth and snoring during sleep, it is necessary to further ask a pediatrician or otolaryngologist to check the causes of the baby’s dyspnea and whether there are adenoid hypertrophy and other reasons.
It is very important to correct the baby’s abnormal breathing style in time. When the baby grows up, it will be difficult to correct it again.
Love to bite your lips? Be careful to change buck teeth
The baby will bite the lips. The small upper lip completely wraps the lower lip, affecting the development of the lower jaw. The upper teeth protrude, the lower jaw retracts, and the huge upper incisors become rabbit teeth.
Babies like to bite the upper lip with their lower teeth. In the long run, the anterior process of the lower teeth will seriously interfere with the development of the maxilla and flatten the facial shape, which will greatly affect the facial value.
In addition, some parents used to give the baby a bottle of milk lying down to eat, eating and sleeping, to 2, 3 years old is still the same. You know, lying down to drink will lead to swallowing food tooth position abnormality, in the long run, upper and lower teeth occlusion is not correct, become [earth bag sky].
The Worry of Little Talent Who Eats Hands
It is normal for the baby to eat hands, which is an effective means for the baby to accept fresh stimulation, exercise coordination ability and appease himself.
However, if the baby eats his hands for a long time, for example, he is still eating his hands over the age of 2, which may increase the chance of gums slightly tilting into the oral cavity. For teeth, even a difference of one millimeter in gum development may be the [culprit] causing irregular teeth.
In this way, the anterior protrusion of the anterior teeth will be caused in the oral cavity, which will affect the eruption of the lower teeth and easily lead to irregular tooth arrangement in the future.
In order to avoid this situation, parents can use pacifiers for their babies, or help their babies relieve anxiety and find other ways to appease themselves.
