Newborn “fitness” relates to adult health
Infancy within the age of 1 year is the fastest and most critical period of human development, and this period has begun in the first month after birth, the neonatal period.
Modern medical research shows that many adult diseases, such as obesity, hypertension, coronary heart disease, diabetes, etc., as well as the quality of mental development, are directly related to the activities of newborns and infants.
During this period, the children lived in the “cradle” life of eating and sleeping. Due to insufficient activity, the consumption of thermal energy is too low, and fat in the body is easy to accumulate.
Medical scientists have found that the growth and proliferation of human fat cells are at their most active peak stage within one year of age. At this time, the increase in the number of fat cells will be left for life, which is the bane of obesity and coronary heart disease.
For this reason, low-grade fever in newborns and infants has attracted increasing attention as a preventive medicine.

Press: It is the parent who gently massages the child with the palm of his hand.

Pinching can be done slightly harder than pressing to make the whole body and limb muscles firmer.
Generally start from the extremities, and then from the shoulders to the chest and abdomen, 10 to 20 times each.
According to related medical research, during the pinching process, the secretion of gastric juice and the absorption function of the small intestine of children have been improved, especially for children with weak spleen and stomach and poor digestive function.
Except for “holding, teasing, pressing, pinching”, it is not advisable to do it during or shortly after eating, in order to prevent vomiting in children, and even the spit out food may be sucked into the trachea, causing choking and choking.
