Babies Are Born By Drinking Amniotic Fluid Mixed With Feces?
My baby is 8 months old, the development is slow whether the birth with the condition of drinking amniotic fluid that has been mixed with his stools and oxygen does not enter the brain affect its growth?
Hello Desy, Thank you for the question.
Have you consulted with a pediatrician to assess your child's growth and development? 8-month-old babies have normal body weight ranging from 6.9-10.7 kg for boys and 6.3-10 kg for girls. While some developments in babies at this age are:
start learning to lift the body with hands and knees
can stand by holding on
learn to sit by bending lutu after standing
will move the body back and forth
actively moving toys
consume finger food or snacks themselves
can respond to words he hears often
can say a correct word to refer to someone or something
mimicking the behavior of those around them
can recognize people's faces remotely
The complications during labor as you mentioned can indeed affect the development of the baby, especially the existence of brain injury caused by lack of oxygen during labor.
You need to remember, that the growth and development of one baby with another is not always the same, there are faster and slower. However, there is indeed a guide that must be followed to determine whether the baby is experiencing developmental delays which should require further medical treatment.
You should immediately consult a pediatrician first if you feel the development of your child is disrupted so that this condition can be treated immediately. Doctors need to do questions and answers to understand the period of pregnancy, childbirth, and child development during this time. The doctor also needs to do a number of tests to assess your child's growth and development. If indeed any delay is found, the doctor will recommend further treatment depending on which aspects of development are experiencing delays (can be physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, and others).
For now, you can continue to stimulate your child to stimulate your child's development, for example by helping him learn to walk by holding his hand and inviting children to communicate, for example by telling stories about daily activities or reading stories to your child.
Hopefully this information is useful.
