Every baby comes with a mission when he comes to his parents. It is like an angel sent by God. It can bring countless laughter and hope to the family. It can be called It is the continuation of the parents’ life. 

Therefore, when children grow up, parents need to take care of them. A little carelessness is likely to cause harm to them, such as the spine.

These inadvertent behaviors of parents will affect the child’s spine development.

1. Prematurely and for a long time to hold upright

Because the baby’s body is still relatively soft when it is just born The development of the spine is particularly incomplete. If the parents hold the spine prematurely and for a long time, it is likely to increase the pressure on the spine and cause the spine to bend. 

2. Take the excrement too early to make the urine

When the baby’s spine is not fully developed, the parents will make the baby’s spine not have a good support. , And if the lower limbs are pulled too far, it will put pressure on the spine and cause developmental abnormalities. 

3. Sit and stand prematurely

People often say “three turns, six sits, nine crawls”, which means that there is a certain regularity in the growth and development of babies. Some parents are anxious about the development of their babies and let them live. Learn to sit up early, this way is likely to affect the baby’s spine development. 

4. Use the baby walker too early

The use of the baby walker itself will be detrimental to the baby’s spine development and leg development. In some countries, it is forbidden to sell and Propaganda. 

Therefore, if you give it to your baby too early, it may cause scoliosis or deformed legs. 

Child’s spine development Critical period

Before 1 year old, a child is a critical period for spinal development, and three physiological bends will be completed, as follows:

1, 3 months: cervical lordosis

The baby’s whole body has not yet developed well The spine is the same, and it is in a soft state, which is completely flat. Until about 3 months, the neck and lower back muscles gradually develop, and they gradually learn to raise their heads. This is also a physiological stage of spine development— -Cervical lordosis, cannot be held upright or stand left. 

2, 6 months-thoracic kyphosis

At this stage, the baby can gradually complete the movement of left standing, which is also the second physiological stage of spine development—— Thoracic kyphosis, mature spine disease, and the head can move freely, but because the home is still in the plastic stage, there is still the possibility of being changed. Therefore, it cannot be held upright for too long. Generally, it is not recommended to exceed ten minutes. 

3. 1 year old-lumbar lordosis

When the baby is about 1 year old, he gradually learns to stand and walk. At this time, the third physiological stage of spine development appears, that is, lumbar lordosis. At this stage, the child The development of the spine is basically formed, so the golden period of spine development in life will also come to an end. 

However, the child’s spine is completely fixed and needs to wait until the age of 6 to 7, because the ligaments are almost fully developed during this period. 

Child’s spine development What harm will go wrong? 

According to survey statistics, more than 68% of children in my country have unhealthy spine, and 20% of them have scoliosis. 

When a baby is born, the spine is straight, and the vertical growth and development will begin to bend forward and backward. Normally, the cervical and lumbar vertebrae are forward, and the thoracic and sacral vertebrae are backward. Able to maintain a better figure. 

Spinal development problems include scoliosis and kyphosis. If the spine develops left and right deviations, it is a kind of scoliosis;

Generally, the bending angle of the spine is between 20 and 40 degrees. If the thoracic spine is bent too backward, when it exceeds 40 degrees, There will be a hunchback phenomenon. 

If there is a problem with the spine development, it is likely to have the following effects on the child:

1. Physiological effects

Because the spine is in the position of the Governor Vessel of the human body , Runs through the back nerves, if there is a problem with the spine, then that part of the nerves will also be affected. 

According to research findings, the number of alveoli in hunched-back people is lower than that of normal people. In the long-term, it is likely to affect the child’s cardiopulmonary function, resulting in shortness of breath, chest tightness and other conditions. 

If it is scoliosis, it will cause neurological dysfunction in the spine, which will affect the digestive system, and it may also hinder the growth of height. 

2. Psychological impact

After children grow up, especially at the age of beauty, scoliosis and kyphosis will affect their appearance and affect their psychology. Let the baby have an inferiority complex.  A problem that is easy for 2-year-old babies, Not only affects height development, but may also damage intelligence

As the saying goes: “One white hides one hundred ugliness, one short destroys everything”.

In this age of looking at faces, height can add a lot of points to appearance and image. Therefore, parents all hope that their children can grow up to be bigger and taller. 

But even if the parents work hard and use the wrong way, even if they work hard, the height of the child will grow harder.

The child has these problems, basically it is difficult to grow taller

1, growth retardation

It refers to the abnormal growth sequence during the growth and development of the child, or It is the situation that the speed suddenly becomes slow. According to the survey, the probability of suffering from this type of disease is 6% to 8%. 

Children often have this problem around 2 years old. Most of the reasons are caused by abnormal endocrine, and not only the height will be shorter than the same age, motor development, language development, Psychological development and mental development will be relatively backward. 

In medicine, it is generally judged by checking the endocrine system, blood routine, liver function, trace elements, X-ray, etc. 

2. Poor diet

Children’s growth and development are inseparable from adequate nutritional supplementation. If there is a problem with the diet, it will directly affect their healthy growth and development, and it will also hinder the growth of height. . 

a. Excess nutrition. Some parents worry that their children are not getting enough nutrition, so they prepare a lot of nutritious foods. However, if they eat too much, the body cannot fully absorb them. It may also lead to food accumulation or fat accumulation, which may induce precocious puberty and cause skeletal lines. Closing early, the height stops growing. 

b. Nutritional deficiency. Some parents are busy with work and are not very concerned about their children’s diet. They often prepare something casually for their children to satisfy their hunger. This is likely to lead to nutritional deficiencies. After missing the height growth period, it is difficult for them to increase their height. . 

3. Sleep quality is not guaranteed

According to research, when children are in deep sleep at night, the secretion of growth hormone is vigorous, especially between 11 o’clock in the evening and 2 o’clock in the morning. Reach the pinnacle. 

And growth hormone can promote protein synthesis, fat decomposition, mineral absorption, etc., and stimulate the growth of articular cartilage and skeletal cartilage, which is a key factor in height growth. 

And studies have confirmed that 80% of the human body’s growth hormone is secreted during sleep. 

Therefore, if the child’s sleep is not guaranteed, sleeps late every day, or does not get enough rest every day, it will directly affect the height growth. 

4. Both parents are short

According to data research, 70% of the height of a child depends on the genetic inheritance of the parents, and 30% is related to acquired factors. 

Although parents’ genes are not the decisive factor, they still dominate the growth of children’s height. If the parents are very short, it takes a lot of effort for the baby to grow into a taller child. 

How to ensure children Is your height growing normally? 

1. Pay attention to balanced nutrition intake

In order for children to grow up to be taller without overnutrition or nutritional deficiencies, parents need to work harder in this area to ensure that their babies are daily The diet can ensure comprehensive nutrition, but not too much. 

The “Nutrition Diet Society” recommends that children aged 4 to 12 should control daily calories at 1830-2470 kcal, main nutrients calcium 500-1000 mg, protein 30-75 g, zinc 6-15 Grams. 

2, ensure the quality of sleep

As mentioned above, the child’s secretion of growth hormone is the highest between 11 pm and 2 am, so in order to ensure the baby’s height With growth, parents can create an environment suitable for falling asleep, such as being quiet, turning off the lights, and having a good room temperature, so that they can go to bed and fall asleep at 9:30 every day, so that they can enter a deep sleep state at that time. 

3. Insist on moderate exercise

According to research findings, children who insist on proper exercise every day can effectively promote the growth of height. Children who love to exercise Will be 4 to 8 cm taller than those who do not exercise. 

The height of the child increases The golden period of

1, the rapid growth period (0~2 years old)

The height of the child at birth is about 50 cm. After 1 year of age, it will grow by about 25 cm this year to reach 75 cm; at the age of 1 to 2, This year’s height will increase by 10-12 cm, reaching 85-87 cm

2. Stable growth period (2-10 years old)

This stage is a stable period for the child’s height growth , An average annual increase of 5 to 6 cm. 

3. Puberty (10-20 years old)

This stage is when the child gradually enters puberty. During this period, the baby will grow at least 7 cm a year, and the boy will grow 7-10 cm a year, and some may even reach 10~ 12 cm; the average annual growth of girls is 6 to 8 cm, and even up to 10 cm. 

Because girls develop earlier than boys, puberty starts and ends earlier than boys.
