Will touching the top of the baby\’s head make the baby stupid, stupid or mute? I firmly believe that the result after so many years is…

In many places, there are many taboos against touching the head of a newborn. For example, \”Touching a newborn\’s head will make him mute\” and \”Touching a newborn\’s head will make him stupid and stupid.\” However, many parents have no way of knowing whether this statement is scientific or not, but they still insist on treating the baby\’s little head as the most important part and taking good care of it. There are also some parents who will inevitably pay more attention when they see that the baby\’s top of the head is breathing and breathing, and feels soft to the touch, with no bones inside, and is supported by several layers of skin. They will become extremely nervous if there is any slight abnormality. After all, can a newborn’s head be touched? What exactly is the \”flash door\” on the baby\’s head? Let’s take a look at today’s content! Revealing the \”flash gate\” on the top of the baby\’s head. The \”flash gate\” on the top of the baby\’s head when breathing and breathing is actually the fontanelle (xìn mén), which refers to the bone gap formed by the loose joints of the infant\’s skull. There are anterior fontanelle and posterior fontanelle. The anterior fontanel is located on the top of the front and is shaped like a rhombus and closes within about 2 years of age. The posterior fontanel is located on the occiput and is triangular in shape and closes around 6 to 8 weeks after birth. The \”skylight\” or \”fontanel\” that people often refer to mainly refers to the anterior fontanelle. Can the baby\’s fontanel be touched? In fact, the fontanel is not that \”fragile\”. It is a seam in the skull that has not yet been closed. The surface is the scalp, and the bottom is the meninges, followed by the brain and cerebrospinal fluid. The beating you feel when you place your hand lightly on the fontanelle is the change in cerebrospinal fluid pressure as the heart beats and blood pressure changes, which is consistent with the pulse. Therefore, the baby\’s fontanel can be touched. There is no such thing as saying that the baby will become stupid, stupid or mute after being touched. However, generally don’t touch blindly if you have nothing to do, especially the fontanels of newborns. If parents use too much force, it is likely to affect the growth and development of the baby. After all, the newborn’s head bones have not yet developed well. However, daily care, such as washing the baby\’s hair and getting a haircut, is fine and will not harm the baby\’s fontanel. Does baby’s scalp need to be cleaned? Many parents think that as the baby grows, the \”scalp\” will disappear on its own, but the result is that the yellow scab accumulates thicker and thicker, which not only affects the breathability of the scalp, but also destroys the growth of hair follicles. Moreover, if the scalp is covered with fontanel, it will also limit the buffering function of the baby\’s fontanel. It is difficult for parents and doctors to judge the health of the baby by observing the condition of the fontanel, making it difficult for doctors to detect dehydration (sunken fontanelle), intracranial infarction, etc. in time. Increased blood pressure (full and bulging fontanels) and other important symptoms may affect diagnosis and treatment. Therefore, parents need help to clean up baby\’s scalp. It is recommended that parents apply care oil on the baby\’s scalp, blow dry and apply Baiduobang ointment after half an hour, wipe it gently with gauze, the scab will fall off, and then use baby shampoo and warm boiled water to treat it. If the tartar is very thick and cannot be removed by immersing it in oil, you can apply it 1-2 times a day for a longer time, about 2-4 hours, until the tartar is soaked and softened before being washed away. Do not forcefully remove scalp dirt with your hands or comb to avoid scalp damage and secondary infection. How to care for your baby\’s fontanels? ❶ Do not use pillows with too hard materials for your baby, such as mung bean pillows and sand pillows, otherwise it will easily cause the baby\’s head and fontanel to deform. ❷ Protect your baby’s head, pay attention to the furniture at home to avoid sharp and hard corners from injuring the baby\’s head. If your baby accidentally scratches his scalp, disinfect it immediately with iodophor cotton balls to prevent infection. ❸ When going out in the summer, you should wear a sun hat for your baby to prevent heat from passing through the fontanel and causing heat stroke; when going out in the winter, you should wear a thicker hat to protect the fontanelle and reduce heat loss at the same time. ❹ The fontanel can be cleaned during bathing. Baby-specific shampoo can be used instead of strong alkali soap to avoid irritating the scalp, triggering or aggravating eczema. When cleaning, you should place your fingers flat on the fontanel and gently rub it. You should not press hard or scratch hard, let alone scratch the fontanel with hard objects. All in all, the fontanelle on the baby\’s head is not as fragile as you think, and daily head care still needs to be done. As long as the baby\’s fontanel is not damaged by external force, there is no problem that the baby will become stupid, stupid or mute if he touches his head every day~
