Premature babies have to cope with the input from the time they meet with life, turning around what they are not developmentally ready to do.
Like other organs of early-born babies, brain development, that is, neurons complete the correct connections and their development is completed in incubation conditions.
In this respect, what remains in the newborn intensive care unit for a long time in the brains of babies, what traces are behind them and how they are affected are still under investigation.
However, it can not be said that the baby’s central nervous system is positively affected by these conditions.
The 3rd trimester of pregnancy is an important period in which the baby’s brain performs rapid and rapid ripening. For this reason, neurological characteristics occur in babies born before 32 weeks after birth.
In the newborn intensive care unit, the baby’s emotional needs are met with limited access. For this reason, babies who are discharged from the hospital carry socio-emotional problems for a while.
In the home environment, the baby needs to develop a new harmony both physically and emotionally.
Premature babies are protective and special interest and magic. This is both true and necessary for brain development.
The task of parents is to read their behaviors correctly and be aware of the excess stimuli that can easily tear their babies.
The baby’s brain is an organ that is constantly developing with new neuron connections.
The brain depends on 2 basic conditions for developing.
– Genetic structure and properties (creation)
– Experience at the end of interaction (nutrition)
Every baby comes to the world with trillions of neurons (nerve cells) waiting for development (sprouting).
If adequate stimulation is not achieved, the neuron (nerve cells) is established before the connections are established.
During birth, the connection between cells is not fast. As long as you are exposed to brain-positive stimuli, the connections begin to accelerate.
As long as the brain feeds on the right stimuli, the potential for the formation of trillions of neuronal connections is observed.
– At birth nerve cells are linked by 25%.
– When the baby is 1 year old, neuron connections are completed by 75%.
– When the child reaches 3 years old, 90% of the connections are completed.
When the brain is fed in a safe and positive environment during development, appropriate connections (learning patterns) are formed. Excessive stimuli (stress in the environment) may adversely affect the development of atypical nerve cell molds.
During the first year, the skin and eye contact, touching, and nourishment in speech areas play a very important role in providing “safe attachment” for physical and mental development.
