一岁至一岁半的幼儿喜欢感官游戏,爱做各种尝试。您是否待在家里不知道如何与出生的幼儿打发无聊的时间?以下列出一些您可以与孩子一起做的简单活动,有助于培养孩子的思维能力。

#1 望远镜

可以把厨房纸巾卷中的硬纸管装作望远镜!孩子们喜欢用纸管偷看。询问孩子看到的东西可以激发孩子的想象力,看到的是飞机、天上的星星还是鸟啊?

#2 踩泡泡

沿着走廊铺设气泡纸,让孩子踩在上面可以激发孩子的好奇心,他们还会好奇气泡纸发出的砰砰声。除了踩在气泡纸上,还可以鼓励孩子在气泡纸上跳起、躺下或爬行。这有助于孩子充分感受不同质地的表面。孩子的小手指也非常喜欢捏气泡纸哦!孩子们可以自己玩啦!

孩子们也非常喜欢小巧可爱、五彩缤纷的海洋球哦!他们的小手可以轻松翻滚并抛出。准备享受无尽乐趣吧! https://www.pexels.com/photo/photo-of- ball-pit- balls-681118 /

#3 玩球

找个较轻的球和您的孩子来回抛接。让孩子滚动或反弹球会让游戏更加有趣。这项活动会增强他们的手眼协调能力,积极参与体育活动。

#4 水画本

水画本中的图案在接触水后会神奇地出现。这些书通常都配有水笔。当孩子看到他在上面涂鸦,白色图像变成彩色时,留意孩子脸上的惊喜表情!

如果您觉得海滩太脏的话,可以选择室内游乐场的大型沙坑,您的孩子可以安全地玩耍!

#5 雕刻沙堡

如果您的孩子第一次到海滩的话,他可能会小心翼翼,害怕脚底下柔软的沙子。一旦孩子放松后,可以让孩子把沙子铲进桶里,和孩子一起雕刻沙堡!

#6 堆叠纸杯

家里有未使用的纸杯吗?您的孩子可以尝试堆叠和拆开纸杯或用纸杯搭建金字塔。这项活动非常需要注意力和专注力,还能增强孩子的手眼协调性、双手协调性和视觉处理能力!最重要的是,如果纸杯倒下的话,孩子不会受到伤害!

#7 玩围巾

玩围巾有益于孩子的身心发展。教您的孩子用围巾做的各种动作,如揉成一团、甩动、漂浮。当孩子在甩动围巾时,孩子不仅在玩耍,还能培养感官技能,学习各种模式和方向。打开音乐,也许您会大吃一惊呢!说不定您会发现一位小舞者。

#8 头、肩膀、膝盖和脚趾

这个阶段的孩子正在探索自己的身体。跟着经典的儿童歌曲一起舞动,可以教导孩子不同的身体部位,还能锻炼孩子触摸头部、肩膀、膝盖和脚趾的动作协调性。以不同的快慢速度来调整歌曲让孩子保持兴趣。

#9 木制拼图

即使是最简单的谜题也会有利于培养孩子解决问题的能力,这对他们未来的学习和成人生活至关重要。从有凹陷的拼图块形状的木制拼图开始尝试。当您的孩子准备尝试更复杂的拼图时,使用带易于识别的物体或动物的简单两件式拼图。

和您的孩子一同欢笑吧! https://pixabay.com/en/baby-face- happy-korean- girl-320653 /

#10 模仿

坐在孩子面前,做些动作让她来模仿,比如挥手或鼓掌。等孩子认出动作并进行模仿。婴幼儿都具有社交性,喜欢与照顾他们的人不断的面对面交流。

#11 冰钓

将冰块放在有一些塑料小雕像(最好是海洋动物)的干净浴缸中,然后让孩子用网筛将小雕像捞出。让他用双手触摸冰块,观察冰块是如何融化并变成水的。这对孩子而言也是个简单的科学实验!

12 fun activities to do with your 12 to 18 month old

At this age, toddlers are big on sensory play and love experimenting with various textures. Are you stuck at home with no idea of what to do with your bored toddler? Here’s a list of simple activities you can do with your child which will help to develop his thinking skills.

#1 Telescope

Make a pretend telescope from the inner cardboard tube of a kitchen paper towel roll! Children love peeking through the tube. Jig your child’s imagination by asking him what he sees – is it a plane, stars in the sky or a bird?

#2 Walk on bubbles

Bubble wrap, that is. Lay bubble wrap along a corridor and let your toddler step on it to pique his curiosity and be intrigued by the popping sounds made. Other than walking, encourage your toddler to jump, lie down or crawl on the bubble wrap. This helps them to fully experience a different textured surface. Oh, and those little fingers would delight in popping the bubble wrap too! Hello, independent play!

Small, colourful ball pit balls are perfect for little hands to roll and throw. Prepare for endless fun ahead! 

#3 Ball Play

Get a lightweight ball and pass it to-and- fro with your tot. Make the game more interesting by getting him to roll or bounce the ball. This activity strengthens their hand-eye coordination and engages them in physical activity.

#4 Water doodle books

Water doodle books contain images that magically appear when in contact with water. The books usually come with a water pen. Watch the fascination on your child’s face as he sees the white images come to life when he scribbles on it!

If you’re worried about dirty beaches, there are indoor playgrounds with large sand pits for your toddler to play safely in!

#5 Build sandcastles

If it is your toddler’s first time to the beach, he may be cautious and afraid of having soft sand under his feet. Once he is relaxed, let him shovel sand into a bucket and build a sandcastle together!

#6 Stack paper cups

Have some unused paper cups lying around the house? Your toddler can try stacking and unstacking the cups or build a pyramid with the cups. Lots of concentration and focus is needed for this activity. His hand-eye coordination, ambidexterity and visual processing skills will be strengthened through the stacking and unstacking of cups. Best of all, it won’t hurt if it topples!

#7 Play with scarves

Scarf play facilitates your child’s physical and emotional development. Teach your child the various actions that can be done with scarves – crumpling, swishing, floating. When your child swishes the scarf around, it’s not just play. Your child is also learning about patterns and directions whilst developing their sensory skills. Turn on the music, and who knows! You might discover a little dancer in the making too.

#8 Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes

At this stage, toddlers are learning about their bodies. This classic children’s song is a great way to teach body parts and develop coordination as they move to touch their head, shoulders, knees and toes. Try changing the tempo of the song slower or faster to maintain interest.

#9 Wooden Puzzles

Even the simplest puzzles aid your child in building problem solving skills which are essential for their future school and adult life. Start off with wooden puzzles which have hollows in the shape of the puzzle pieces. Move on to easy, two-piece puzzles with easily recognizable objects or animals when your child is ready to attempt more complex pieces.

Smile, and watch your toddler smile back! 

#10 Mirroring

Sit facing your toddler and do something for her to mimic, like waving your hands or clapping. Wait for your toddler to recognise the action and mimic it. Babies and toddlers are social creatures and enjoy uninterrupted face time with their caregivers.

#11 Ice Fishing

Place ice cubes in a clear tub with a few plastic figurines (preferably sea animals) and get your toddler to fish the figurines out with a mesh sieve. Allow him to use his hands to touch the ice and observe how ice melts and turns into water. That’s a simple Science experiment for your little one too!

#12 Doodle Box

Get a clean cardboard box large enough for your baby to sit inside, hand over a child-friendly crayon and let your baby unleash his inner Picasso! This activity aids in developing your child’s fine motor skills when he grasps and controls the crayon. It also confines any mess to the insides of the box. Let us raise world-ready children, one purposeful activity at a time.

What are some of your favourite activities for your 12- 18-month- old toddler? Do share them too!

给开始宝宝喂食固体食物的新晋父母指南

除喂养母乳或配方奶粉外,如何判断开始让您的孩子食用固体食物?喂食孩子的难易程度完全取决于新晋父母自己。如果掌握正确的知识,给孩子喂食就像ABC一样简单。

首先,列个小清单:

以下特点表明可喂食固体食物:

  1. 宝宝至少为六个月大。
  2. 您吃东西时,宝宝开始注意并盯着您。
  3. 宝宝看着固体食物时会咂嘴。
  4. 宝宝会伸手去拿固体食物。
  5. 宝宝可独自坐直。
  6. 宝宝无挺舌反射。

有些父母和医生会让4个月大的宝宝进食固体食物,但应视具体情况而定。应由宝宝的儿科医生来决定宝宝是否可以早点进食固体食物。

给宝宝首次喂食固体食物时应谨记的注意事项

宝宝的摄食习惯以及您早期喂食食物的方式为宝宝的饮食习惯和喜好奠定基础。

幸运的是,如果您了解方式的话,很容易让宝宝对食物和味道产生兴趣。以下为一些应谨记的注意事项:

1. 用餐状况混乱。

很难保证干净的用餐。您的宝宝会抓东西,把食物泡在水里,拌和、捣碎和吐出食物,这都是正常的情况,因为宝宝在学习如何进食以及探索新事物。

2. 保证所有用具清洁。

无论您是让宝宝用盘子进食,还是让宝宝在高脚椅餐具或桌子上进食,在向宝宝喂食前,您应对所有用具进行消毒和清洁。

3. 视宝宝的情绪而定。

宝宝的情绪与成年人一样,可能每天会有所不同,甚至在同一天内都会有波动。如果宝宝进食的情绪不佳,请清理并稍后再尝试喂食。

4. 必须有成人监管。

过渡到进食固体食物可以像婴儿的屁股一样顺滑。

在宝宝用餐期间应有成人监管。有些父母希望亲自喂食,而有些父母则希望宝宝能自动断奶,让宝宝能独立进食。您可以视宝宝和家庭情况而定,但应记住安全第一!

5. 用餐愉快。

在用餐时,开朗的性格和愉快的时光可让宝宝乐享餐桌和餐食。

那么,宝宝可以食用哪些食物呢?

除速溶麦片外,还应使用新鲜的食材。为了宝宝的肠道健康,在准备膳食时确保食品安全,并为宝宝提供全熟食品,避免污染风险。

您可将以下蔬菜放在搅拌机中搅成泥状,或煮沸后捣碎:

1.胡萝卜
2.梨
3.苹果
4.土豆
5.南瓜
6.红薯

您也可以将以下食物撕碎或切成适合入口的小块,然后让宝宝从盘子中拿起食用:

6. 柔软的白面包
7.煮熟的鸡肉
8.煮熟的软体鱼

一岁以下的婴儿不能食用味道浓郁的香料或调料,因为这会增加宝宝的消化负担。

如果我的宝宝不想进食该怎么办?

父母自然都会担心宝宝出现挑食问题。我们建议您在宝宝稍大一点再关注宝宝的挑食问题,但如果宝宝不喜欢您喂食的食物,可采取以下措施:

1. 如果宝宝拒绝的话,不要强迫进食。
2. 如果宝宝不喜欢某类食物,可在第二天继续尝试喂食,或在下周继续尝试喂食。宝宝的味蕾可能正在发育,上周不喜欢的食物可能会在下周喜欢上。
3. 保持少量多次的进食。每次大约为一两汤匙的食量。
4. 每次用餐结束后让宝宝饮用冷却的开水。
5. 不要停止喂食牛奶,因为宝宝仍从牛奶中获取最多的营养物质。
6. 注意宝宝是否有过敏或病症(如G6PD缺乏症),以及需要特殊饮食。
7. 除非您的儿科医生建议,否则不要让您的宝宝接受特殊饮食。
8. 在食用新食物时,注意宝宝是否出现过敏反应,如荨麻疹、呼吸困难、发痒和极度烦躁。如果您发现宝宝首次出现过敏反应,请立即前往急诊室。

享受为宝宝均衡各种必需的营养物质的过程。毕竟,吃得好是助力全球宝宝的第一步!

请在下面与我们分享您第一次给宝宝喂食固体食物的感受!

A New Parents’ Guide to Starting Solids for Children

How do you know if it’s time to start your child on solids apart from drinking breastmilk or formula? For first-time parents, feeding your child is only as hard as you imagine it to be. It can be as easy as A-B- C with the right knowledge.

First, a little checklist:

Signs that your child is ready to eat solid food:

  1. They are at least six months old.
  2. They start noticing and looking at you eat your own food.
  3. They smack their lips and tongue when looking at solid food.
  4. They reach for actual food.
  5. They can sit upright unsupported.
  6. They have lost their tongue-thrust reflex.

Some parents and doctors allow kids as early as four months old to consume solid food, but this is recommended on a case-to- case basis. At the end of the day, the best person to determine if your baby should start eating solid food earlier would be your child’s paediatrician.

What you should remember about feeding your child their first solid food

Their feeding habits and how you introduce food to them in the early years build the foundation for their eating habits and preferences.

Luckily, it’s easy to get them interested in food and textures if you know how. Here are some things to
remember:

1. It’s going to get messy.

Expecting clean mealtimes are not part of the equation. Your child is going to grab, dunk, mix, mash and spit up food. It’s normal and part of them learning how to eat and exploring the new journey.

2. Keep everything clean.

Whether you choose to have your kid eat from a plate, with utensils or on the surface of their high chair or the table, everything should be sterilised and cleaned before offering your little one.

3. Follow your child’s lead and comfort level.

Like adults, baby’s moods may differ from day-to- day, or even within the same day. If he’s not in the mood to eat, clean up and try again later.

4. Always ensure adult supervision

The transition to solid food can be smooth like a baby’s bottom.

An adult should always be with your child during mealtimes. Some parents prefer feeding their child while others may wish to embark on Baby-led Weaning, so baby eats independently. Do what works for your child and family, and remember safety first!

5. Have fun.

A happy disposition and lively time during meals can help your child identify the dining table and meals as a great experience.

So, what can you feed your little one?

Besides instant cereal, make it a point to use fresh ingredients. For the sake of your baby’s intestinal health, ensure food safety during meal preparation and offer fully cooked food to your child to prevent the risk of contamination.

You can puree the following vegetables in a blender or boil them in water before mashing them:
1. Carrots
2. Pears
3. Apples
4. Potatoes
5. Squash
6. Sweet potatoes

You can also shred or cut them into small bite-sized pieces and have your baby pick them up from a plate:
1. Soft, white bread
7. Boiled chicken
8. Boiled soft fish

Babies under one-year- old are not ready for intense flavours or spices as these may tax their digestive

What if my child doesn’t want to eat?

Naturally, there would be concerns about picky eating. While we suggest holding off the ‘picky eater’ label until your baby is a bit older, here are some things to do if your child doesn’t like to eat the food you’ve served:
1. Don’t force them to eat if they refuse.
2. If they don’t like a particular food, try feeding it the next day, or even the following week. Your baby’s taste buds could be developing and what didn’t work last week could work the next.
3. Keep the meals frequent but small. Ration approximately a tablespoon or two of food each time.
4. Offer cooled boiled water to drink after each meal.
5. Don’t hold off on the milk—this is where they still get the most nutrients.
6. Be mindful of allergies or conditions (such as G6PD deficiency) that would require a special diet.
7. Do not put your child on a special diet unless your paediatrician says so.
8. Watch for signs of allergic reaction such as hives, breathing difficulties, itching and extreme irritability when introducing new food. Go to the emergency room immediately if you think your child is having a first allergic reaction.

Have fun nourishing your children with a good balance of essential nutrients. After all, eating well is one step towards raising world-ready children!

明智父母腹泻指南

新晋父母可能从未想过自己会全神贯注地讨论大便问题。

除了观察颜色、黏稠度和频率变化外,父母还需了解宝宝出现腹泻时该怎么办。

首先,在解决腹泻之前,您应该注意哪种症状?

Source: WebMD

如何了解您的宝宝是否有腹泻

宝宝的大便颜色和黏稠度各种各样,如果出现以下情况,您就可以确定是否出现腹泻:

  1. 在前一两个小时内,每次换尿布时会出现水样大便。
  2. 连续数天出现水样大便。

您还可以使用上文中的WebMD Bristol工具表来检查宝宝的大便。徘徊在5、6和7之间的物质接近腹泻区域,因此请观察宝宝大便的黏稠度是否与之一致。

但如果突然出现以下症状,请立即看医生:

  1. 虽然有喂食,但宝宝不断出现囟门凹陷
  2. 大便带血
  3. 较小的婴儿发高烧(3个月以下的婴儿高烧超过38°C;3个月至12个月的婴儿高烧超过8°C )
  4. 大便中有黏液
  5. 严重腹泻
  6. 呕吐
  7. 排尿较少(较少更换尿布)
  8. 哭闹和焦躁
  9. 口干
  10. 哭的时候无泪
  11. 按压皮肤后不会回弹

以上症状表明您的宝宝出现(或即将出现)脱水,并且可能存在腹泻。

您是否已做好准备来为宝宝解决腹泻问题?

引起腹泻的原因?

既然您已了解如何为宝宝解决腹泻问题,现在就来了解下引起腹泻的原因。常言道,预防是最好的治疗。

1. 感染

当您的孩子与病毒或细菌相抗争时,他们的免疫和消化系统就会出问题,此时可能会出现腹泻。您的孩子甚至可能患有轮状病毒,但有种疫苗可治疗这种病毒,该疫苗是新加坡婴儿必须接种的疫苗。请与您儿科医生或综合医院联系,了解疫苗的接种时间。

2. 使用抗生素

纽约蒙特法沃医疗中心儿童医院儿科抗菌药物管理项目的主任Iona Munjal医学博士表示,抗生素会杀死有益和有害的细菌。在胃里被杀死的有益细菌可能会促进消化过程。

3. 寄生虫

寄生虫可能会在游乐场、日托中心或家里的玩具和物品上,把玩具和物品放入口中的孩子更容易感染寄生虫。

4. 过敏

过敏也会导致腹泻。除食物外,也会有多种原因造成过敏,您的宝宝可能会因昆虫叮咬、植物花粉或药物而过敏。在某些情况下,过敏甚至可能会遗传,孩子的身体会对外部刺激产生反应。

宝宝腹泻时您该怎么做?

如果您已确定您的孩子出现腹泻并需要进行腹泻治疗,您在家中应作何处理?

以下是一些专家建议。请谨记,在给宝宝服用任何药物或新物质之前,应向医生咨询:

1. 除非医生建议,否则不要给宝宝服用药物

只有医生才能为您的宝宝提供药物治疗,因此最好向专家咨询。

2. 提供口服补液

如果儿科医生建议您给宝宝服用口服补液,则您可以给宝宝服用。此外,多以母乳和奶瓶喂食宝宝。不要给宝宝喂食果汁、含糖饮料或非处方药,因为这会加重病情。

3. 继续喂食固体食物并稍作调整

专家表示,您不应在宝宝出现腹泻时停止给宝宝喂食固体食物。您可以给宝宝喂食更多的全麦面包、鸡丝等瘦肉、燕麦片和薄脆饼干,也可以给宝宝喂食香蕉和苹果酱,但不要忘记让宝宝摄入蛋白质。如果您的宝宝食欲不振,您可以给宝宝喂食粥、米粉汤或鱼汤等流体食物,确保宝宝食用适宜的流体食物。

4. 温和清洗宝宝的屁股并保持清洁

由于宝宝的排便次数增加,宝宝的屁股会疼痛并且容易出现尿布疹。清洗过多也会擦伤皮肤,宝宝可能会倍感不适。用温水代替擦拭纸巾进行清洗,让宝宝的屁股自然风干,勤换尿布以减少细菌增长。可给宝宝擦尿布疹霜来舒缓宝宝娇嫩的肌肤。

但是,如果宝宝不大便该怎么办?请点击此处

为宝宝解决复杂的腹部问题是助力全球宝宝健康的重要之举。您只需提高警惕并具备相关知识就能像专业医师一样帮孩子解决腹泻问题。

爸爸妈妈们,也请和我们分享宝宝腹泻时您准备的特殊食物吧!

An informed parents’ guide to diarrhoea

New parents would agree that they would never expect to be engrossed in a discussion about poop.

Besides monitoring for a change in colour, consistency and frequency, parents need to know what to do when your baby or toddler has a diarrhoea.

First, what sort of symptoms should you observe before addressing the case of diarrhoea?

Source: WebMD

How do you know if your baby has diarrhoea

Babies poop in a myriad of colours and consistency, you can identify an onset of diarrhoea if they exhibit the following:

  1. Watery poop with every new diaper change in the last one or two hours.
  2. Watery poop for the past few days.

You can also use the WebMD Bristol Tool Chart above for examining your baby’s poop. Anything that hovers around 5, 6 and 7 is close to diarrhoea territory, so monitor your baby for consistent stools as
such.

But if these symptoms flare up, go to a doctor right away:

  1. Consistent sunken fontanel despite feedings
  2. Blood in stool
  3. High fever in very young babies (above 38°C for babies younger than 3 months; above 38.8°C for ages 3 months to 12 months)
  4. Mucus in the stool
  5. Severe diarrhoea
  6. Vomiting
  7. Infrequent urination (less diaper changes)
  8. Fussiness and irritability
  9. Dry mouth
  10. Lack of tears when crying
  11. Skin doesn’t spring back when you depress it

The above are signs that your child is dehydrated (or on their way there) and there may be an underlying condition to the diarrhoea.

Are you equipped to relieve your baby of tummy troubles?

What causes diarrhoea?

Now that you understand how to detect diarrhoea care for your baby, it is time to take a better look at
the causes. As the saying goes, prevention is the best remedy.

1. Infection

When your child is fighting off a virus or bacteria, their immune and digestive systems act up. That might lead to loose stools. Your child may even have rotavirus, but there is a vaccine for this and is included in the required vaccine schedule for babies in Singapore. Do check with your child’s paediatrician or the polyclinics on the vaccination schedule.

2. Antibiotic use

According to Iona Munjal, M.D., director of the Pediatric Antimicrobial Stewardship Program at The Children’s Hospital at Montefiore Medical Center in Bronx, New York, antibiotics kill bad and good bacteria. The good ones being killed off in the tummy would compromise on digestive process.

3. Parasites

Kids who put things in their mouths are more susceptible to this as parasites can live on their toys and objects found in playgrounds, daycare centers or homes.

4. Allergies

Allergies could also be a trigger to diarrhoea. The kind of allergy developed comes in many forms besides food; your baby may have gotten it from an insect bite, plant pollens or medication. In some cases, it may even be hereditary, and your child’s body reacts to the stimuli.

What do you do when your baby has diarrhoea?

If you’ve successfully determined that your child has loose stools and need diarrhoea treatment, how do you deal with it at home?

Here are some methods that experts suggest. Keep in mind that you should consult your doctor before administering any drug or new substance on your baby:

1. Do not give medicine unless your doctor says so

Only physicians are licensed to medicate your baby, so it’s always best to check with the experts.

2. Offer lots of fluids

If your paediatrician allows an oral rehydration drink, you may give that. Otherwise, offer the breast or bottle more often. Never give fruit juice, sugary drinks or off-the- counter medicine as these may aggravate the condition.

3. Continue with solid diet with some modification

You shouldn’t stop feeding your child solid food while they have loose stools, says experts. What you can do is add more whole wheat bread, lean meat like shredded chicken, oatmeal and crackers. You can also give them banana and applesauce, but do not forget protein sources. Should your child’s appetite be poor, considering offering liquid-based diets such as porridge, bee hoon soup or a simply bowl of fish soup to ensure he gets optimal fluids.

4. Keep baby’s bottom clean with gentle methods

Since your little one is pooping more often, his butt can become irritated and prone to diaper rash. The frequent cleaning can also lead to skin abrasions and that can be painful for the little one. Wash with lukewarm water instead of wipes, air dry his bottom and change diapers often to reduce the growth of bacteria. Use a diaper rash cream pre-emptively to soothe baby’s delicate skin too.

But what if you baby can’t poop? Read here

Dealing with messy tummy troubles is part and parcel of raising world-ready children. As long as you’re vigilant and informed, you can handle your child’s watery poop like a pro!

Parents, do you prepare any special food for your children when they are down with diarrhoea? Do share them too!
