Simple play can help develop motor skills StatePoint


hile every child is unique, one thing is certain; the first few years of life are the most important for brain development. And, parents can create the right atmosphere to hone language, cognition and social and emotional skills, as well as support physical and motor development in everyday activities. “Everything your child observes and engages with affects his or her cognitive and physical development,” early brain development expert Dr. Lise Eliot said. She is a member of the Expert Panel at VTech, a world leader in age-appropriate and developmental stage-based electronic learning products for children. “You can help create an atmosphere that encourages your baby, infant or preschooler to meet essential developmental milestones,” she said. Eliot recommends baby-proofing the home early to encourage safe exploration for physical development. As soon as babies are mobile, exploration is crucial –as is space so they may move without limitations, she said. Also, be sure to spend time outdoors each day, visiting age-appropriate playgrounds and parks where children can spend time together to foster cooperation, sharing and empathy, she said. Be mindful of the types of toys you give your children. The best choices will be age-appropriate and designed to encourage them to meet developmental milestones.


Remember, the best thing you can do for your children is spend time to read aloud, create art projects, sing and play together.

“Children learn through play, and it’s never too early to incorporate teachable moments into a baby’s day,” “Children learn through play, and it’s never too early to incorporate teachable moments into a baby’s day,” Eliot said. For more early childhood development toys, visit milestones.

Keeping infants, toddlers safe while shopping

Babies of 2016



ost parents of infants are well-advised of certain dangers. However, there is one safety risk that doesn’t get much attention. Nearly 24,000 children are in accidents involving shopping carts each year, many suffering cuts, bruises, broken limbs and even head and brain injuries. Falls from the cart are among the leading causes of head injuries to young children. How can you ensure your trip to the store doesn’t lead to a trip to the emergency room? It’s important to keep in mind that most shopping cart injuries are entirely preventable. The experts at Safe-Strap, the inventors of the shopping cart seat belt, offer the following tips: • It can be tempting to try to balance your infant carrier on top of your shopping cart, as the carrier may appear like it’s designed to fit there. Be advised, this isn’t the case. Use a shopping cart outfitted with a docking station, such as Safe-Dock, the first univer-

sal infant carrier docking station for shopping carts. This provides an easy transition of baby carrier from car to cart, no matter what the make and model of your U.S.-purchased car seat is. • Toddlers and pre-school-aged children can be at-risk too. Make sure your children always wear a safety belt or harness while in the shopping cart. Make sure that it is fastened securely. Children should never ride in the basket. Remember, it only takes a second for a child to stand up in a shopping cart, which increases the chances of falling or tipping the cart. • Pay attention. It’s all too easy to let your phone be a distraction, when shopping is distraction enough. Keep your eyes on your kids for safer shopping. • If the stores you shop in don’t offer carts with infant carrier docks, talk to a store manager. Your customer feedback is valued, and your voice could help motivate the store to upgrade their carts to include important safety features. More shopping cart safety tips can be found at

Why human milk matters

Babies of 2016

Family Features


utrition is one of the most critical factors in healthy child development, but this is especially true for babies born prematurely. For many preemie parents, the early arrival of their baby quickly turns what was expected to be a blissful time into a period fraught with a host of unexpected decisions — including those involving their baby’s nutrition. Some premature babies will follow a special feeding course since they are too tiny to eat on their own and require additional nutrition to help them grow. Human milk is associated with substantial health benefits for all infants, but it is especially important for premature infants, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. Necrotizing enterocolitis is the most common and serious intestinal inflammatory disease among premature babies, which occurs when tissue in the small or large intestines is injured or begins to die off. However, exclusive human-milk nutrition helps decrease the incidence and severity of the disorder, the studies claim. An exclusive human-milk diet — when 100 percent of the protein, fat and carbohydrates of the infant’s intake are derived solely from human milk — is especially beneficial for premature infants who require specialized nutrition and care in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Several studies reported that extremely premature infants, specifically those born weighing 500-1250g, who

received the human milk diet as opposed to preterm formula or fortifier made from cow’s milk, have a reduced risk of developing medical or surgical necrotizing enterocolitis studies published in Adult Child and Adolescent Nutrition and the Journal of Pediatrics, show. “We know that human milk has immune factors, antibodies and high levels of important fats and vitamins, so it makes sense that an exclusive humanmilk diet would be a natural source to help them reduce infection and necrotizing enterocolitis,” Dr. Amy Hair, assistant professor of pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine and director of the neonatal nutrition program at Texas Children’s Hospital, said. “Breast milk is the best nutrition for all babies, but in the case of extremely premature babies, a mother’s own breast milk does not provide all the nutrients these babies need,” she said. “Because very low-birth weight preemies require additional energy and protein, doctors will add a human milk fortifier to breast milk for the premature infant’s feeding,” Hair said. Parents who have an infant in the neonatal intensive care unit should speak with their baby’s neonatologist about the nutritional options for their preemie to ensure they are receiving an exclusive human-milk diet that includes a human milk-based, human milk fortifier for optimal outcomes for their infant. No other intervention has been shown to be nearly as effective against the incidence of necrotizing enterocolitis, based on research published in the Journal of Pediatrics.
