Growth And Development Of Children Aged 6 Months?
Good morning … I want to ask … My 6-month-old child cannot lie on his stomach, or is crooked. Legs are also less active, look weak too. Already checked into the hospital, told to test hormones and the results are good there are no problems. Next, we were told to do a CT scan, indeed we as parents have not taken the action to immediately CT scan because honestly we are afraid. This is our first child … There is a neighbor who experienced it, after the CT scan, the child became like an idiot, squinted eyes and so on. .. I used to just traditional medicine. Because my friend who has a lump too, was forbidden by the doctor to give Asi to her child. Is that right ???? Thanks for the answer …
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
At the age of 6 months, normally a baby is adept at raising his head, turning his body, rolling around, and some are even good at sitting alone without the help of an adult. Not only that, babies of this age have been able to interact well, especially by people who often come in contact with them, such as talking to, laughing, crying when left, and imitating simple sounds. When given toys, some babies are able to learn to grasp, even though the grip is not too strong.
At first glance, if judged by the information that you convey, your baby's development is relatively slower than the benchmark babies of his age. However, ideally, monitoring infant development is not only assessed based on online consultations like this, because of the very high potential of subjectivity. You need to have your baby consulted directly to a doctor or a specialist in the growth and development subdivision for an objective evaluation using standardized standards. Some conditions that can cause stunted baby's development are:
History of premature birth or low birth weight (low birth weight)
A history of suffering from severe illness early in his life, thus requiring the baby to undergo intensive treatment in hospital
Disorders in pregnancy, such as maternal malnutrition, infection in the womb
Congenital defects, such as cerebral palsy, congenital metabolic disorders
Other diseases, such as intellectual disability, tumors in the spinal cord, thyroid gland disorders, and so on
Lumps in the breast there are various types, ranging from hormonal factors, infections, benign tumors, malignant tumors, and so on. Not all mothers with breast lumps may not breastfeed their babies. Not necessarily also a lump in your breast that causes a bridge in your baby's development at this time.
To find out, whether the cause of this development delay, indeed a comprehensive examination must be carried out. Not just monitoring the baby's development alone, other examinations, such as laboratories, X-rays, CT scans, etc. can also be done by doctors if there are medical indications that require it. These checks are indeed not without risk. However, so far, there has been no clinical evidence to show that CT scans in infants are at risk of causing idiotic or squint babies as you fear.
Therefore, you better consult directly with your doctor or pediatrician regarding the best steps you need to do right now. With your competence and experience, your doctor will certainly try to do the best for your baby. For now, you should focus on giving your baby nutritious milk and MPASI. Don't give baby a gadget. Frequently invite your baby to play and joke so that its development is stimulated properly.
Hope this helps ...
