    Practical Tips for Keeping Baby’s Teeth Healthy

    According to most pediatricians, maintaining baby's oral health early is very important for establishing good dental habits later on. Once the teeth begin coming in, start taking care of them right away. Many parents think baby teeth aren't important because they're eventually replaced by permanent ones. But these first teeth preserve the spacing for the permanent ones and help Baby chew and talk. If they're not cared for properly they can decay, leading to a gum infection called gingivitis, which can affect the spacing of permanent teeth. Here are some tips for keeping baby's teeth clean:
     
    1. Start cleaning your child's mouth even before her teeth come in. Wipe the gums off after each feeding with a warm, wet washcloth or a dampened piece of gauze wrapped around your finger. 
     
    2. The first signs of cavities in baby teeth are discoloration and minor pitting. Putting Baby to bed with a bottle of milk (or worse, juice) is notorious for causing cavities. Don't leave your infant with a bottle for long periods of time, especially if you notice he's no longer feeding and is just using the bottle for comfort.
     
    3. Most infant foods easily wash off Baby's teeth with just a drink of water after meals. But it's good to introduce a toothbrush as soon as possible, so baby can get used to having it in his mouth. You probably won't need to use the brush to actually clean Baby's teeth until he's eating only table foods (and has a significant number of teeth), at around 18 months. However, you'll want to gently clean your child's teeth with a toothbrush and some bicarbonate of soda if your toddler has eaten sticky, sugary foods. 
     
    4. Begin using a pea-size amount of non-fluoride toothpaste once Baby is about 2. Wait until at least 3, when your child is old enough not to swallow the toothpaste, before introducing the fluoride kind.
     
    5.The American Dental Association recommends that Baby get his first dental exam at age 1, but most pediatricians agree that the first visit can wait until age 3, as long as you practice good home care.

    Activities for Baby’s Development

    It may not seem like it, but from the very moment a baby is born, they are learning and absorbing everything around them. That is why it is important to partake in activities with your baby to provide a solid foundation for learning and, at the same time, promote lasting parent-child relationships.  Here are some activities you can do with your 0-6 month-old infant.
     
    INFANT SIT-UPS
    What to Do: This fun game is a good way to exercise neck muscles. Lay your infant on a soft blanket, facing up. Hold on to his hands and wrists, then count, "One, two, three, up!" Gently pull him to a sitting position. Gently lower him back down to the lying position, then repeat.
    Skills Learned: Social development, trust, upper body strength
     
    LEG KICKS
    What to Do: Infants love to kick their little legs. Place your infant, face up, on a blanket on the floor, and hold a plastic plate or pillow within easy reach of her legs. You may need to guide her feet to the object at first. When contact is made, your infant will feel the object and be excited with you as you praise her. Once your infant understands the game, it will be fun to practice repeatedly.
    Skills Learned: Body awareness, eye-foot coordination, listening
     
    STRETCHING
    What to Do: It's stretching time! Put a favorite toy just beyond your child's reach. Let him stretch to get the toy.
    Skills Learned: Sensory development
     
    MOVING OBJECTS
    What to Do: Your child may be very interested in observing moving objects. Take him outside or stand by a window to see the tree branches moving in the wind, the birds flying in the yard, and the wind chimes moving. Talk to your child all about what you see.
    Skills Learned: Visual tracking
     
    PICKING UP
    What to Do: Children love to touch anything in sight. Put a number of objects that your child can pick up on a blanket. See how many objects she picks up. You can also sit your baby on your lap and hand her the objects. Observe how long she holds on to them.
    Skills Learned: Visual development, tactile stimulation, gross motor

    New Research Highlights How Babies Learn Speech

     

    As a leader in Innovative Baby Products, MyRaZbaby is passionate about the health, safety, and wellness of babies. That's why we're always excited to find and share the latest research that teaches us more about this vital stage of human life.

    NPR recently reported on a new study that explores one of the most vital developments in early childhood: how we first develop speech. As it turns out, infants begin practicing how to talk in their minds months before they verbally utter their first words.

    Using what looks like a hair dryer from Mars, researchers from the University of Washington have taken the most precise peeks yet into the fireworks display of neural activity that occurs when infants listen to people speak.

    They found that the motor area of the brain, which we use to produce speech, is very active in babies 7 to 12 months old when they listen to speech components.

    "What we're seeing is that the babies are practicing because they want to talk back," says Patricia Kuhl, a speech psychologist at the University of Washington and the lead author on the paper, published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academies of Sciences. 

    Kuhl used a machine called a magnetoencephalograph, or MEG, that measures the brain's magnetic field from outside the head. Unlike MRIs or CTs, which require that patients be completely still, the MEG can scan images in moving patients, which works out perfectly for fidgety babies.

    The researchers found that the motor part of the baby’s brain lit up when the baby listened to the sounds, indicating that they were trying to mimic or respond to the speech. Essentially, between seven months to a year, babies undergo a major transition in which they can begin to distinguish sounds from different languages; by age one, they can actually pinpoint the native language of their parents and tune out foreign speech.

    The study’s conclusion was that "baby-talk" – the way parents typically speak to babies, as characterized by a higher pitch and slower pace – actually benefits them by helping to develop this vital but unsent social development. Other scientists suggest that this reinforces the importance of surrounding one’s infant with language in general, though not necessarily needing to speak “baby”.

    While future plans call for research to further confirm this, the take-home advice is clear: communicate and engage with your baby as much as possible.

    Recent Study Highlights Risk of Bed-Sharing for Infants

    It goes without saying that babies need a tremendous amount of care and caution. That’s a big reason why MyRaZbaby has always strived to provide the most Innovative Baby Products on the market, in order to ensure the best health and safety for babies. It’s also why we’re eager to share the latest news and research in this area.

    A new study reported in the Huffington Post drew attention to a fairly common and increasingly popular practice: bed-sharing, which the researchers defined as "the infant sleeping on the same surface with a person or animal" (which includes toys and other objects). Analyzing factors linked to sleep-related deaths for babies, it concluded that bed-sharing brings considerable risk to children four months and younger:

    "Bed-sharing for 0-4 month old babies is extremely risky," Rachel Moon, M.D., a pediatrician and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) researcher at Children's National Health Hospital and an author on the study, wrote in an email to The Huffington Post. "In this study, this sleep situation presented the most important risk for infants in this age group."

    Among babies between the ages of 4 months and 1 year, however, the predominant risk factor was rolling into objects in their sleep space.

    "Although we always recommend that the infant's sleep area be clear of pillows, blankets, bumper pads, etc., many parents forget the importance of this message as the baby gets older," Moon said. "However, these items are equally dangerous as the baby becomes more mobile."

    Note that this study did not factor in the use of a co-sleeper, a crib-like device that typically attaches to the side of the parents' bed. Moreover, while the researchers found a link between bed-sharing and deaths, they could not definitively determine that a high percentage of infants who bed-share will die.

    Still, it is vital to be as safe as possible, and the American Academy of Pediatrics has thankfully provided clear guidelines for safe sleeping practices for babies. These include having babies sleep on a firm surface in the same room as their parents – but not the same bed – and placing babies on their backs to sleep every night until they reach at least one year old.
