The weaning development begins the first time your baby takes food from a source other than your breast, that means your child is ready to have formula milk from a bottle or for example mashed fruit. Weaning is the progressive replacement of breastfeeding with other foods and ways of nurturing.
Intervention should start as early as possible, like when parents begin to notice their child is not developing as expected and they voice these concerns. A common response is “they will grow out of it or we will just wait and see”. But, the longer the wait the more difficulties the child and family will have. The earlier a problem is identified, the earlier intervention can begin, which leads to the likelihood of the child learning the skills they need to communicate, engage in social interactions and manage behaviors. Research shows that children who receive early intervention services are more likely to have improved long-term outcomes. These services address communication, play, problem behaviors and skill development. When children are young, their brain plasticity is high, which is the optimal time for development and learning of skills should occur. The older the child, the more difficult it is to grow these skills.
Explain the importance to children’s holistic development of Speech, language and communication This development is important for children’s holistic development as this will help the children to socialise and help them express what they like and need, this will get them to have more sense about the world. If the child can communicate this will help them with their confident and self-esteem levels as they can talk about how they feel.it is important for children to use their own language skills and not to listen to other all the time and this could put their development back. Adults should praise children a lot so they have the encouragement try new things but it is important you adults to give them feedback so that they can learn from right and wrong.
Well, sad to say that weaning day is upon us. Ella has been a very strong breastfeeder since the day she was born. It’s now time to starting introducing the bottle if only for nap times! I’m very happy to have gotten my hands on the new Playtex Drop-in bottles. Let the weaning commence!
1/10 Understanding how children and young people develop 1.1 Explain the sequence and rate of each aspect of development from birth - 19 years. The rate at which all children develop varies from child to child, however the sequence of development is very similar. The ways in which children and young people develop are measured are social, physical, intellectual, communication and emotional development (SPICE).
Unit 2 Discussion: Prenatal Development Readings: Chapter 3 and 4 A teratogen is any exposure in the environment such as drugs, illnesses, alcohol that can cause substantial harm to an unborn or breastfeeding baby. There are some teratogens that even if the mother was exposed to or poisoned at one point before getting pregnant can still cause harm to the unborn baby even if she is no longer exposed. Lead can be considered a teratogen as it is a toxic metal and can cause harm during the embryonic period.
Outcome 3 Understand the importance of early intervention for children and young people who are disadvantaged and vulnerable
Aparna after each session spent supporting with the children, Aparna reports to the teacher which includes information about how the children behaved whilst working. If Aparna have had to use any sanctions, Aparna informs to the teacher. , if children have behaved and participated well, or produced some good work, I also include the rewards I have given them e.g. stickers, showing their work to the head teacher and five minutes playing outside, similarly informing that child that she/he would have to go back to his classroom instead of joining in with the planned activity if continued to behave in a negative way.
In my three activities I plan to help develop a 1 year old’s holistic development, which includes their social, physical, emotional, cognitive and linguistic development, but I will primarily be focusing on their physical development. Normative is defined as, “Establishing, relating to, or deriving from a standard or norm, especially of behaviour” (Oxford Dictionary) which means a child is tracked by when they meet milestones and if they meet them at a normal rate they have normative development. This relates to my activities as the information gathered from the observations of my activity could be used to judge whether or not the child is meeting their physical development milestones. Holistic development means the development of the child
Routines are important to keep children safe as routine provide a consistent and predictable flow of what happens when. Consistent routines in a child’s life allows them to have stability and structure. In my setting there is a clear routine for the dropping off and collecting a child.
Firstly raise and encouragement are crucial within supporting a child 's development so the child doesn 't search elsewhere for other ways of gaining attention. Praise is important as children can become more critical of themselves and start comparing themselves to other children. Secondly; explanation, this should be enforced so that the children understand why certain boundaries and rules are put into place. For example, the routine of the particular room in which the child is in.
As a global public health recommendation, the World Health Organization recommends that infants should be exclusively breastfed for the first six months of life to achieve optimal growth, development and health. Most six-month-old infants are physiologically
