Effects Of Infants Under 7 Months Of Stepping On The Ground?
Hello … I have a baby aged 6 months, when I was 5 months old I accidentally went down to the ground so I stepped on the ground … well where my mother was angry because when I didn’t step on the ground … I wanted to ask if there was anything That’s a big risk if a baby who hasn’t aged 7 months doesn’t step on the ground? Or just because it’s just a tradition? Thank you.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. So far there are no medical restrictions for infants to step on the ground, regardless of age. There is no specific medical condition that makes a baby more vulnerable to illness or the like if stepping on the ground before the age of 7 months.
So it is very likely that your mother conveyed more on traditional or cultural values, which if interpreted might be because at this age, the baby is still unable to walk so he will crawl. If he crawls, his hands will get dirty and when he enters his mouth, he will get sick. It could also be another cause that is not medically known. But basically, there are no restrictions based on age. It's just that, for every age, even for adults, you should not be barefoot when stepping on the ground so that no worms enter and infect. So, hopefully answering your question.
