THE FIRST MOMENTS OF YOUR BABY… Once the baby is born, it is obvious that all the attention will be turned on him. The pediatrician will give him his first care. It is most likely your baby to cry immediately after birth. In this case, the paediatrician will wipe, will cut the umbilical cord, will make a brief examination and will give him to his mum. There is a possibility that the newborn will require resuscitation few minutes after birth (stimuli to cry or administration of oxygen). In the beginning probably he has a white-blue color and is covered by vernix. In the body and the head could have traces of blood, while the head may have slightly long and narrow shape, after the passage of the genetic tube. The paediatrician will do five simple tests once the baby is born. These are assessed by the Apgar scale which includes the following tests: • Frequency of heart rate. To evaluate the intensity and regularity of the heartbeat. 100 beats per minute are rated 2 under 100-1 and lack of pulse 0. • Breathing. For evaluation of lung maturity. The normal breathing (40-60 breaths / minute) scored 2, 1 with arrhythmia and the shortness of breath with 0. • Movements. It is an indication of muscle tone. Active movements are rated 2, the few with 1 and the defective with 0. • Skin color. To determine if the lungs are able to supply the blood with oxygen. The pink skin scored with 2, the bluish ends with 1 and the total blue skin with 0. • Reflexes. The crying and grimacing indicate that the baby reacts to stimuli. Crying is rated 2, the slow crying with 1 and 0 with silence. Most babies graded between 7 and 10. After 5 minutes the test is repeated. The cutting of the umbilical cord and the first contact... The appropriate moment the umbilical cord is clamped with two hemostatic forceps to stop the bleeding. One is placed near the navel, the second at a distance two three centimeters. The umbilical cord is then cut between the clamps. Immediately following childbirth the midwife and the pediatrician will begin resuscitation of the newborn. If your baby's breathing is normal, there is no reason not to get immediately embrace. In order not to be cold, will descend with a blanket or with a towel. The blandly caresses you, the sound of your heart and your voice will be very good for the baby. His eyes are securely nailed to your face and make movements with his hands, as if to swim towards you. As you hold it in your lap, you will realize the flame of motherhood - a mixture of love, pride, concern and admiration with immense fatigue that comes after the shocking experience of childbirth. When confirm the good condition of your baby, do not hesitate to ask the staff to leave you alone with your baby and your partner in the maternity room. You can then relax and enjoy the amazing new experience. Good to breastfeed the baby immediately to induce the rapid expulsion of the placenta... These minutes have to dedicate exclusively to baby to get acquainted and to enable it to learn the sound of your voice. Hold 20 to 25 cm from your face, because only in this distance will distinguish your features well. Smiling and talking softly with singer voice, because newborns are based on high vocal tones. It is also good, your partner, to get the baby and hug it in the first half hour of his birth. Men linked equally quickly with their babies as women. Before you take the infant from the the delivery room, will hang over him a kind of identity to know all the staff at the maternity hospital that belongs to you. This is a plastic wristband that is placed on the wrist of your baby and remains as it is in the maternity hospital. These bracelets write the surname of the baby, the date and time of birth and weight of the newborn. As most mothers will probably want and you can keep the wristband as a souvenir. As your baby grows, you will find it incredible that the wrists and ankles were once so tiny. HIS FIRST EXAMINATION… Shortly after birth, the pediatrician will examine again the infant to make more specific tests. He will check if the proportions of the face and the body are normal. We will consider whether there are indications back spina bifida. It will also examine the opening of the anus, the fingers of the hands and feet. Also checked and the number of vessels in the umbilical cord. Usually these are three: two arteries and one vein. Then the baby will be weighed and measured the circumference of the head and body length. This preliminary test takes only a few seconds. Diet for growing child...

The main sources of vitamin D is the effect of solar radiation on the skin, but remember to avoid strong sun, especially at midday, where there is the risk of sunburn. • `Red meat, liver, and fish, which are rich sources of iron. The lentils, green vegetables and cereals are also good sources of iron. Iron is needed for healthy blood system, especially for teenage girls who have many more losses due to menstruation. • Oranges, lemons, tomatoes and potatoes: they are good sources of vitamin C, which is essential for the health of the organization. It also helps in the absorption of iron, so it's a good idea to be given to your child to eat or drink something containing vitamin C, such as a glass of fresh juice with a meal rich in iron to increase the amount of iron absorbed from the body. • Milk, margarine, butter, green vegetables, carrots and apricots: they are good sources of vitamin A, which is important for good vision and healthy skin • You should avoid giving your children swordfish and marlin, because these types of fish contain relatively large amount of methylmercury, which can affect the developing nervous system of children.

So if your child is consuming such foods: - Make sure to eat only occasionally and in small quantities, so they are only a small part of the total diet - Encourage your child to brush his teeth every day - Try to choose one day a week as a day you eat sweet or you can do this weekend. Q: My child is overweight. You should be dieting? A: If you encourage your child to have a healthy, balanced diet, limit the quantities of foods that have sugar and fat, and attract both have enough physical activity, you can achieve a good health of body weight.

The most basic predisposing factors are the child's age and the presence of fever. Some families are more prone to develop febrile seizures ( hereditary predisposition ) . Q. What caused the fever ? A. In most cases it is a viral infection eg upper respiratory tract , which need not be treated with antibiotics. The pediatrician will look for other causes of fever , for example, ear infections , urine , blood or intestine and sometimes you think the likelihood of meningitis. These are the reasons that might make your child blood and urine tests or even a lumbar puncture. Q. Are febrile seizures dangerous for my child ? A. Almost never .

Will my child need to take regular medication to prevent any recurrence of febrile seizures ? A. In rare cases child will need regular medication (continuous prophylaxis) . It is very likely that your pediatrician to prescribe diazepam, a drug that reduces the number of relapses and which can be administered either rectally ( by enema ) at baseline or during an episode of convulsions , either orally at 2 -3 early days of febrile . Q. Can I do something to stop the recurrence of febrile seizures to my child? A. Yes , to a point . Your child , like every other child is very likely to have disease in the future, especially in the context of a viral infection. The most important thing is to try to download timely temperature , since the precipitating cause for the occurrence of febrile seizures is fever . But we must keep in mind that antipyretics alone do not reduce the likelihood of new episodes . WHAT TO DO WHEN YOUR CHILD IS NOT WELL • Check the temperature It is advisable to always have a thermometer at home if the child's temperature is over 370C, try to keep your child cool and administer timely antipyretic . • Keep your child cool Do not use very thick clothes and do not have much increased the temperature of the room.

Remember that the temperature rise may result from an infection of the upper respiratory tract (eg, otitis media ) , so consult your pediatrician if your child seems to be no good.
