Cry of a newborn (vagitus)

The child is born, he makes his first breath and loudly cries. The first cry of a newborn is the first sound your child makes. Both doctors and mother of the baby expect this.

The importance of the first cry

Just a couple of minutes before the first cry, the baby is still in the womb. At this point, he gets all the important substances for his life through the placenta and umbilical cord. At the moment of birth, he ceases to receive oxygen from his mother's body. Nerve cells of the brain give the command to the muscles of the baby's chest to contract. The child makes his first breath: at the time of inspiration, all the alveoli in the baby's lungs are filled with air. Due to the fact that the muscles of the chest have contracted all in one moment, the child experiences real pain.


The first cry of a child as a prerequisite for further life

The newborn cries during inspiration. The cry is merely vital to a child. The fact is that during the cry the body produces anaesthetizing hormones that flow directly into the bloodstream. It is worth noting an increase in the level of carbon dioxide, which promotes intense breathing, extremely necessary to a child. Carbon dioxide stimulates the cells of the brain, which are responsible for relaxing the muscles. As a result, after crying, the child feels better, the pain passes. A sufficient amount of carbonic acid in the blood neutralizes the pain syndrome, making thereby the newborn calm down and fall asleep.

Please note: Cry develops the mental capabilities of the child's brain, increases the physical capabilities of his muscles and removes pain.

Child’s cry and speech development

When a baby is crying, an articulation apparatus develops. In order to develop his mental abilities through the articulation apparatus, the child often cries, demanding something to eat and sleep and attention of his parents. In the case when the baby needs the warmth of the mother's abdomen to relieve intestinal colic (pain in the abdomen), the baby will certainly achieve his own.

Child’s cry and intestinal colic

In newborns, intestinal colic is an actual problem during the first months of life. For an infant, this is a painful experience, which causes serious discomfort for him. What a child can do to reduce pain is to shout loudly. The child's cry triggers a mechanism for the formation of carbon dioxide in the blood. As a result, muscle relaxes for a moment, the release of anesthetic hormones into the blood occurs. Painful sensations gradually pass away, intestinal colic ceases for a while. Tired of pain and screaming babe calms down.

When the baby cries the level of carbon dioxide in the blood can rise up to 8%. After that, the muscles of the intestine relax, after a while the colic pass, and the amount of carbon dioxide returns to the previous index (7%). The exhausting process of spasms and their relaxation is repeated in the infant again and again during the first months of life.

Why is crying useful and how often do babies cry?

At the time of the conversation, the amount of carbon dioxide in the human blood is at 7%, oxygen - 2%. When the amount of carbon dioxide in the blood increases, this stimulates the production of all the hormones, for this reason, it feels good for us when we communicate. iPhone always requires recharging, which is quite normal. Crying occurs on inspiration. Exhalation is longer than in ordinary speech. Our children like screaming. At these times, the amount of carbon dioxide in the blood of the newborn rises to 7.5%, and the oxygen level is still 2%.

If your child screams, something hurts or there are unpleasant feelings that cause discomfort, even when the child is constantly on hand. The baby will stop screaming when the pain syndrome passes. It turns out that when a carbon dioxide increases to 8% an analgesic hormones get in the blood.

The question is: how to achieve the concentration of carbon dioxide in the blood was constantly at 8%? How does the baby's body determine that the concentration is exactly 8%?

Nature has created an intercellular regulation to ensure the constancy of the internal environment. Internal regulation is carried out with the help of intracellular fluid, an endocrine system that produces hormones, as well as blood and lymph.

Brain cell nutrition

For the normal development of brain cells responsible for the speech and mental abilities of the baby, they should receive timely nerve impulses from other brain cells. It is known that nutrients in the human brain come from the total blood flow. The brain receives the information on the status of other cells in the body through the concentration of various hormones in the blood.

There are special areas for anesthesia in the brain cells. They react solely to the hormones the human body produces and releases into the bloodstream when pain occurs. These cells of our brain are responsible for speech and for mental abilities. For physiologically normal work of cells, a constant outflow (waste) of their vital activity is needed.

The lymphatic system keeps the cells clean!

In the case when, for some reason, the lymph flow rate slows down, the lymphatic system does not fully cope with the elimination of waste from the cells. As a result of this work in the muscle cells over time, there is swelling, which causes a delay in development in children.

Symptoms of muscle swelling

The key signs of the presence of swelling in the muscles in your baby and developmental delay are provided below. When the baby:

  • At the age of 3 months, he clenches his fists, pulling his hands to the toys with difficulty.
  • At the age of 4 months, he hardly turns over. He does not try to roll over on his side.
  • At the age of 6 months, the child has an increased muscle tone in the legs.
  • At the age of 7 months, the baby is not crawling yet.

The presence of the features described above indicates that your child has delayed development of certain areas of the brain. These sites are responsible for the movement and mental perception of the process itself. In order to help your child to develop properly, without delay, you need to do an emendic massage and special gymnastics for the development of the brain.
