1 Infant and Toddler Growth and Development Elisa A. Mancuso RNC, MS, FNS Professor of Nursing

2 Growth of Infant Cephalocaudal (head → toe) Proximodistal (trunk → periphery) General → Specific (Large → fine muscles) 1” a month during 1 st 6 months Average Ht 6 months 25 ½ inches 12 months 29 inches Use recumbent length until 3 years than standing (vertical height)

3 Weight 5-7oz/wk until 5-6 months Birth weight doubles at 6 month Birth weight triples at one year Always refer to kilograms 2.2 lbs = 1 kg All medications based on weight in kg!

4 Head Circumference = HC Reflects brain growth Posterior fontanele closes @ 2 mos. Anterior fontanel closes @12-18 mos. Measure (Forehead → Occiput) –For 1 st 3 years

5 Chest (CC) and Abdomen Chest = Head circumference @ 1 year Measure @ nipple line. Barrel chested as infant Chest > Head after 3 years After 1 year of age, – A/P transverse diameter = 1:2 Abdominal Girth Measure above umbilicus √ Abdominal distention R/O liver or intestinal diseases

6 Growth Charts Serial exams to assess growth progress Plotted as percentiles: –25 th %, 50 th %, 75 th %, 95 th %. –@ 95 th % = Pt > 95% of kids. Used to notice any ↓ or ↑ in weight, height, or HC. Specific charts for premature infants

7 Denver Developmental Screening Test (DDST) Denver II Assesses from birth → 6 years Age divided monthly → 24 months, –then q 3 mos. → 6 years Not an intelligence test Four categories Personal/Social Fine motor/Adaptive Language Gross motor

8 Infant Reflexes Moro - Startle –Loud sound = extension & abduction of extremities Tonic neck – Fencing –Turn head to one side ® –arm & leg extend on ® side Babinski –Dorsiflexion of big toe and toes fan out All of above disappear in about 3-4 months

9 Developmental Skills Trust vs Mistrust (Birth to one year) Social responsiveness to others Trust develops with regular consistent, loving care Self reliance and develops confidence Early infancy 0 - 3 months Smiles at significant other Holds head & chest up when prone Reaches for objects-grasp Laughs

10 Developmental Skills Early Infancy 4-6 months Pulls self to sitting position Sits with support Rolls over = “Safety issue” –Tummy → back first at 2-3 months –Back → tummy by 6 months stronger head and arm control Transfers objects from hand to hand Makes vowel sounds oh-oh

11 Developmental Skills Late Infancy 6-9 months Hold own bottle Develops preference for dominant hand Probes with index finger Feeds self finger foods Pincer grasp @ 9 months –thumb and index finger used Sits erect-unsupported Crawls Separation Anxiety ↑ cries with strangers Object Permanance Searches for items outside field of vision

12 Developmental Skills 9-12 months Triple birth weight and ↑ height by 50% Releases objects Pulls self to feet Sits from standing position Walks with help –independent walking can be as late as 18 months! Responds to name Recognizes no Says 4 -5 words: mama, dada, no, bye Teething (age – 6 = # of teeth) 12 mos – 6 = 6 teeth Cool cold items to chew on Tylenol 10-15 mg/kg q 4-6 hours

39 Breast Milk Contains all nutrients and –A,B, E –Immunoglobulin IgA, T and B cells Lacks Vit C, D and Fe Twice sugar (lactose)= laxative effect – ↑ # of stools ↑↑ lactalbumun more complete protein ↓↓ caesin easier to digest

40 Formula No more than 32 oz/day No whole milk in infants! –No iron in milk –Infants unable to properly digest – ↑ ↑ irritation of intestinal mucosa, bleeding and anemia

41 Solids Begin at 4-6 months Too early introduction of solids – ↑ incidence of allergies and celiac disease. –No cereal in formula bottle! Assess physiological readiness – ↓ Tongue extrusion reflex – ↑ Coordinated suck & swallow –Tooth eruption – ↑ biting & chewing – ↑ Pancreatic enzymes for complex nutrients Introduce foods one at time –New food after 3 days: –Cereal → vegetables → fruits → meats → egg yolks No egg whites <1 year No honey/corn syrup <2 years ↑ Risk of botulism No Nuts, Seeds or Popcorn
