Growth and Development Growth- increase in physical size of a structure or whole. -quantitative change. Two parameters of Growth 1.weight- most sensitive measure of growth, especially low birth rate. Wt doubles 6 months 3x 1yr 4x 2-2 ½ yrs 2. Height- increase by 1”/mo during 1st 6 months - average increase in ht - 1st year = 50% stoppage of ht coincide with eruption of wisdom tooth. Development- increase skills or capability to function - qualitative How to measure development 1.Observe child doing specific task. 2.Role description of child’s progress 3.DDST- Denver development screening test. MMDST (Phil) Metro Manila Developmental Screening Test. DDST measures mental 4 main rated categories of DDST 1. Language communication 2. personal social-interaction 3. fine motor adaptive- ability to use hand movement 4. gross motor skills- large body movement maturation- same with development “readiness” Cognitive development –ability to learn and understand from experience to acquire and retain knowledge. To respond to a new situation and to solve problems. IQ test- test to determine cognitive development Mental age x 100 = IQ Chronological age Average IQ – 90-100 Gifted child- > 130 IQ Basic Divisions of Life I. Prenatal stage from conception- birth II.Period of infancy 1. Neonatal- 1st 28 days or 1st 4 weeks of life 2. Formal infancy- 29 day – 1 year

III. Early childhood 1. Toddler – 1-3 yrs 2. Pre school 4-6 years IV. Middle childhood 1. School age- 7 – 12 yrs V. Late childhood 1. Pre adolescent 11 – 13 yrs 2. Adolescent 12 - 18 – 21 Principles of G & D 1.G&D is a continuous process -begins form conception- ends in death - womb to tomb principles 2. not all parts of the body grow at the same time or at same rate. - asynchronism Patterns of G&D 1.)renal digestive childhood circulatory musculoskeletal

grows rapidly during

2.)Neuromuscular tissue (CNS, brain, S. cord) - grow rapidly 1-2 years of life - brain achieved its adult proportion by 5 years. 3.)Lymphatic system- lymph nodes, spleen grows rapidly- infancy and childhood to provide protection -infection - tonsil adult proportion by 5 years 4.)Repro organ- grows rapidly at puberty Rates of G&D 1.fetal and infancy – most rapid G&D 2.adolescent- rapid G&D 3.toddler- slow G period 4.Toddler and preschool- alternating rapid and slow age- slower growth fetal and infancy- prone to develop anemia 3. Each child is unique 2 primary factors affecting G&D A. Heredity R – race I – intelligence S – sex N - nationality Females are born less in weight than males by 1 oz. Females are born less in length than males by 1 inch


B. Environment Q – quality of nutrition S – socio eco. status H – health O – ordinal pos in family P – parent child relationship Eldest- skillful in language and social skills Younger- toilet trained self 4.G&D occurs in a regular direction reflecting a definitive and predictable patterns or trends. Directional trends- occur in a regular direction reflecting the development of neuromuscular function. These apply to physical, mental, social and emotional development and includes. a. cephalo-caudal “head to tail” - occurs along bodies long axis in which control over head, mouth and eye movements and precedes control over upper body torso and legs. b. proximo- distal “Centro distal” - progressing form center of body to extremities. c. Symmetrical- at side of body develop on same direction at same time at same rate. d. Mass specific “differentiation” - child learns form simple operations before complex function of move from a broad general pattern of behavior. To a bore refined pattern. B. Sequential- involves a predictable sequence of G&D to which the child no9rmally passes. a. locomotion- creep than crawls, sit then stand. b. socio and language skills- solitary games, parallel games C. Secular- worldwide trend of maturing earlier and growing larger as compared to succeeding generations. 5.Behavioral in the most compressive indicator of developmental status. 6. universal language of child- play 7. great deal of skill and behavior is learned by practice. Practice makes perfect. 9. neonatal reflexes us must be lost before one can proceed. -plantar reflex should disappear before baby can walk -moro reflex should disappear before baby can roll persistent primitive infantile reflexes- case of cerebral palsy Theories of G&D Developmental tasks- different form chronological age -skill or growth responsibility arising at a particular time in the individuals life. The successful achievement of which will ------- a foundation for the accomplishments of future tasks.

Theorists 1. Sigmund Freud 1856-1939 Austrian neurologists. Founder of psychoanalysis - offered personality development Psychosexual theory a.) Oral Phase 0-18 months - mouths site of gratification -activity of infant- biting, sucking crying. -why do babies suck?- enjoyment and release of tension. -provide oral stimulation even if baby was placed on NPO. -pacifier. -never discourage thumb sucking. b.) ANAL- 18 months-3 years -site of gratification- anus -activity- elimination, retention or defecation of feces make take place - principle of holding on or letting go. -mother wins or child wins -child wins- stubborn, hardheaded anti social. (anak pupu na, child holds pupu, child wins) -mother wins- obedient, kind, perfectionist, meticulous OC-anal phase -help child achieve bowel and bladder control even if child is hospitalized. c.) Phallic- 3-6 years site of gratification -genitals activity- may show exhibitionism -increase knowledge of a sexes -accept child fondling his/her own genitalia as normal exploration -answer Childs question directly. Right age to introduce sexuality – preschool d.) Latent- 7-12 years -period of suppression- no obvious development. -Childs libido or energy is diverted to more concrete type of thinking -helps child achieve (+) experience so ready to face conflict of adolescence e.) Genital- 12-18 years -site of gratification -genitals -achieve sexual maturity -learns to establish relationships with opposite sex. -give an opportunity to relate to opposite sex. ERIC ERICKSON- psychoanalysis theory - stresses important of culture and society to the development of ones personality - environment - culture stages of psychosocial a.) trust vs mistrust – 0-18 months. -foundations of all psychosocial task -to give and receive is the psychosocial theme -know to develop trust baby


1. satisfy needs on time - breastfeed 2. care must be consistent and adequate -both parents- 1st 1 year of life 3.) give an experience that will add to securitytouch, eye to eye contact, soft music. b.) Autonomy vs shame and doubt 18-3 years --independence /self gov’t develop autonomy on toddler 1.give an opportunity of decision making like offer choices. 2. encourage to make decision rather then judge. 3.set limits c. initiative vs guilt- 4-6 years -learns how to do basic things -let explore new places and events -activity recommended- modeling clay, finger painting will enhance imagination and creativity and facilitate fine motor dev’t d. industry vs inferiority 7-12 yrs -child learns how to do things well -give short assignments and projects e. Identity vs role confusion or diffusion 12-18 yrs - learns who he/she is or what kind of person he/ she will become by adjusting to new body image and seeking emancipation form parents -freedom form parents. f. Intimacy vs isolation 20-40 yrs -looking for a lifetime partner and career focus g. generatively vs stagnation 40- 60 h. ego integrity vs, despair 60-65 JEAN PIAGET- Swiss psychologists -develop reasoning power STAGES OF COGNITIVE DEVELOPMENT A-Sensory motor 0-2 yrs -“practical intelligence”- words and symbols not yet available baby communicates through senses and reflexes. (sub div.) 45-65 yrs

Schema 1.) neonate reflex 2.) primary circular 3.) secondary circular reaction Coordinati on of secondary reaction Tertiary circular reaction

Age 1 month 1-4 months 4-8 months

Behavior All reflexes -Activity related to body -repetition of behavior ex. thumb sucking -activity not related to body -discover obj and person’s permanence -memory traces present -anticipate familiar events. -exhibit goal directed behavior -increase of separateness (will search of lost toy, knows mom) -use trial and error to discover places and events -“ invention of new means” -capable of space and time perception (hits fork, spoon on table or drops fork) -transitional phase to the pre operational thought period.

8-12 months

12-18 months

Invention of new means there mental combinatio n

18-24 months

Preoperational thought 2-7 years Schema Preconc eptual age 2-4 yrs Behavior -thinking basically complete literal and static -egocentric- unable to view others interrupt -concept of dying is only now -concept of distance is only as fat as they can see. -concept of amenism inanimate object is alive -not aware of concept of r3eversibility- in every action theories an opposite reaction or cause and effect Beginning of causation


4-7 yrs

Concrete Operational thought 7-12 years to find solution to everyday problems which systematic reasoning. 2.have concept of reversibility- cause and effect 3.have concept of longer uation – constancy despite of transformation. 4.4. activity recommended- collecting and classifying 5.–stamps stationeries, dolls, rubber band markers.


Formal Operational thought 12 and up. 1.Cognition achieved its final form 2.can deal with past present and future 3.have abstract and mature thoughts. 4.can find solutions to hypothetical problems with scientific reasoning. 5.activity ------- will sort out opinions and current events. KOHLBERG- recognized the theory of moral dev’t as considered to closely approximate cognitive stages of dev’t -sabay with cognitive dev;t Stages of Moral dev’t Infancy – premoral, prereligious, amoral stage AGE Preconvention al 2-3 yrs STAGE Level 1 1 DESCRIPTION

E. DEV’T MILESTONES-major markers of growth and dev’t 1. Period of infancy- universal language of child-play a.) Play- Infancy- solitary plays -solo, mom interactive -facilitate motor and sensory dev’t -safety- important age appropriate solitary play- mobile, teeter, music box, rattle b.) fear of infancy- stranger anxiety begin 6-7 months peak 8 months diminishes 9 months 1 month- dance reflex disappears looks at mobile 2 months- holds head up when in prone, social smile, baby coos “doing sound” cry with tears -closure of frontal fontanel 2-3 months head lag when pulled to sitting position. 3 months- holds head and chest up when prone follows obj. past midline grasp and tonic neck reflex fading hand regard (looks at hand) 4 months – turns form front to back head control complete needs space to turn Laugh aloud, bubbling sounds 5 months- turn both ways “roll over” -teething rings -handles rattle well -moro reflex disappears ( 4-5 months) 6 months- reaches out in anticipatory of being picked up -sits with support -uses palmar grasp -eruption of 1st temp teeth 6-8 months 2 lower incisors -say vowel sounds “ah”, “oh” -handles bottle well 7 months- transfer obj. hand to hand -likes obj that are good size 8 months- sits without support -peak of stranger anxiety -planters reflex disappears 8-9 months in prep for walking 9 months - creeps or crawls -neat finger grasp reflex - combine 2 syllables “mama” and “papa” - needs space for creeping 10 months – pull self to stand -understands “no” -responds to own name -peak a boo, pat a cake -can clap



-Punishment/ obedience oriented (heteronymous morality) child does right cause a parent tells him or her to and to avoid punishment -Individualism. Instrumental purpose and exch. Carries out action to satisfy own needs rather than society. -Will do something for another if that person does something for the child. -Orientation to interpersonal relations of mutuality. Child followers rules cause of a need to be a “good” person in own eyes and eyes of others. -Maintenance of social order fixed rules and authority. Child finds ff. rules satisfying. Follows rules of authority figures.

Initiation and maintenance of respiration 2nd stage of labor- initial airway -initiation of a /w is a crucial adjustment

-most neonatal deaths with in 24 h caused by inability to initiate a/w -lung function begins after birth only How to initiate a/w a.) remove secretions bulb syringe B. Catheter Suctioning 1.) place head to side to facilitate drainage 2,) suction mouth 1st before nose -neonates are nasal breathers 3.) period of time -5-10 sec suctioning, gentle and quick prolonged and deep suctioning can lead to hypoxia, laryngo spasm, brady cardia due to stimulation vagal nerve 4.) evaluate for patency -cover nostril and baby struggles there’s a need for additional suctioning C. If not effective, requires effective laryngoscopy to open a/w. After deep suctioning an endotracheal tube can be inserted and oxygen can be administered by an (+) pressure bag and mask with 100% oxygen at 40-60b/m. Nsg alert: 1. No smoking 2. Always humidify to prevent drying of mucosa 3. Over dosage of oxygen can lead to scarring of retina leading to blindness ( retro lentalfibrolasia or retinopathy of prematurity) 4. When mecomium stained (greenish) never administer oxygen with pressure ( O2 pressure will push mecomium inside) 2.) Establishing extra uterine circulation - circulation is initiated by lung expansion or pulmo ventilation and completed by cutting of cord. FETO PLACENTAL CIRCULATION -Placenta(simple diffusion) –oxygenated blood is carried by the umbilical vein- passes liver-ductus venousus- IVCRT atrium 70% blood is shunted to foramen ovale- LT atrium mitral valve – LT ventricle- aorta-lower extremities. -Remaining 30%- tricuspid valve- RT ventricle- pulmonary arteries- lungs (for nutrition) (vasoconstriction of lungs pushes blood to ductus arteriousus to aorta to supply upper extremities.

SHUNTS-shortcuts Ductus venosus- -shunts from liver to IVF Foramen ovale- shunts bet 2 atrias Ductus arteriosus- from pulmonary artery to aorta


Decrease PO2, increase PCO2 acidosis

Will cause 1st breath /cry of baby

Decrease pulmo artery pressure

Increase PO2

Decrease blood flow

Increase pressure to Lt side of heart

Closure of ductus arteriosus

Closure of ductus venosus & AVA

Closure of foramen ovale

What will sustain 1st breath- decreased artery pressure What will initiate lung circulation-lung expansion What will complete circulation- cutting of cord 4.) 2 way to facilitate closure of foramen ovale a.) Tangential Footstep- slap foot of baby -never stimulate baby to cry if secretions not fully drained to prevent aspiration -check characteristic of cry normal cry- strong, vigorous and lusty cry cri-du-chat syndrome-chromosomal obliteration cat like cry b.) proper position -right side lying pos. -will increase pressure on left and foramen ovale will close Foramen Ovale and Ductus arteriosus will begin to close within 24h

Structure F. Ovale Ductus Arteriosu s Ductus Venosus Umbilical artery

Appropriate time of obliteration 1yr 1 month 2 months 2-3 months

Structure remaining Fossa Ovalis Ligamentu m Arteriosum Ligamentu m venosum 1.) lateral umb. Ligament 2.) interior iliac artery ligamentum teres ( round ligament of liver)

Failure to close Atrial Septal Defect Patent ductus arteriosus

2-3 months

Obliteration-complete closure

Position of infant immediately after birth:


NSD-trendelenberg/ T position for drainage contraindication of trendelenberg position - increase ICP CS- supine or crib level position Signs of increased ICP abnormally large head bulging and tense fontanel increase BP and widening pulse pressure #3 & #4 are Cushings triad of Decreased RR, decreased PR ICP projective vomiting- sure sign of cerebral irritation high deviation – diplopia – sign of ICP older child 4-6 months- normal eye deviation >6 months- lazy eyes 7.) High pitch shrill cry-late sign of ICP Temp Regulation - goal in temp regulation is to maintain it not less than 97.7% F (36.5 C) - maintenance of temp is crucial on preterm and SGA (small for gestational age) - babies prone to hypothermia or cold stress factors leading to dev’t of HYPOTHERMIA 1. preterms are born poi kilo thermic- cold blooded - babies easily adapt to temp of environment due to immaturity of thermo regulating system of body. Hypothalamus 2. inadequate SQ tissue 3. baby is not capable of shivering 4. babies are born wet PROCESS OF HEAT LOSS evaporation-body to air (TSB) conduction- body to cold solid object (cold compress) convection-body to cooler surrounding air (aircon) radiationbody to cold object not in contact with body earliest sign of hypothermia- increase in RR Effects of Hypothermia ( Cold stress) 1.) Hypoglycemia- 45-55 mg/dl normal 50- borderline 2.) met acidosis- catabolism of brown fats (best insulator of newborns body) will form ketones 3.) high risk for kernicterus- bilirubin in brain leading to cerebral palsy 4.) additional fatigue to allergy stressful heart

pre-heated first isolette (or square acrylic sided incubator) 3.prevent an necessary exposure – cover baby 4.cover baby with tin foil or plastic 5.embrace the baby- kangaroo care A. Establish Adequate Nutritional Intake CS- breastfeeding after 4 hours NSD- breastfeeding asap Physiology breast milk production As you deliver baby, decrease Estrogen, decrease Progesterone- -Anterior Posterior Gland (APG) releases prolactin – acts on acinar cells (or alveoli) – produce foremilk – stored in lactiferous tubules ( or collecting tubules) where breast milk is produced – alveoli post-pit.gland Sucking- PPG – oxytocin – contraction of lactiferous tubules - milk ejection reflex- let down reflex. Advantages of Breastfeeding 1. Economical 2. Always available 3. Breastfed babies have higher IQ than bottle fed babies. 4. It facilitates rapid involution 5. Decrease incidence of breast cancer. 6. Has antibodies- IgA 7. Has lactobacillius bifidus- interferes with attack of pathogenic bacteria in GIT 8. Has macrophages Store milk- plastic storage container Store milk – good for 6 months from freezerput rm temp. don’t heat Disadvantages: 1. Possibility of transfer HEP B, HIV, cytomegalo virus. 2. No iron 3. Father can’t feed & bond as well Stages of Breastmilk: 1. Colostrum- 2-4 days present content: decrease fats, increase IgA, dec CHO, dec CHON, inc minerals, inc fat soluble minerals 2. Transitional milk- 4 – 14 days content: inc lactose, inc water soluble vit., inc minerals 3. Mature milk- 14 & up content: inc fats (linoleic acid) – resp for devt of brain & integrity of skin inc CHO- lactose – easily digested, baby not constipated. - resp of sour milk smelling odor of stool. Lactose intolerance- deficiency of enzyme LACTASE that digest LACTOSE Decrease CHON- lactalbumin


To Prevent Hypothermia 1.dry and wrap baby 2.mechanical pressure – radiant warmer


Cows milk – inc fatsDec CHO Inc CHON – casing- has curd that’s hard to digest. Inc minerals–traumatic effect on kidneys of babies. Can trigger stone formation. Inc phosphorus Health Teachings: 1. Proper hygiene- proper hand washing Care of breast - cotton balls with lukewarm water Caked colostrum- dry milk on breast 2. Best position in breastfeeding – upright sitting -avoid tension! 3. Stimulate & evaluate feeding reflexes a.) Rooting reflex- by touching the side of lips/cheeks then baby will turn to stimulus. Disappear by 6 weeks- by 6 weeks baby can focus. Reflex will be gone - Purpose rooting- to look for food. b.) Sucking – when you touch middle of lips then baby will suck - Disappears by 6 months - When not stimulated sucking will stop. c.) Swallowing- when food touches posterior of tongue then it will be automatically swallowed d.) Extrusion/ Protrusion reflex -when food touches anterior portion of tongue then food will be extruded. Purpose: to prevent from poisoning Disappear by 4 months & baby can already spit out by 4 months. Criteria Effective Sucking a.) Baby’s mouth is hiked up to areola b.) Mom experiences after pain. c.) Other nipple is also flowing with milk. To prevent from crack nipples & initiate proper production of oxytocin. - begin 2-3 min at @ breast ( 5 – 7 min other authors) to initiate production of oxytocin - increase 1 min/ day – until reaching 10 mins @ breast or 20 mins/ feeding. For proper emptying & continuous milk production / feeding -feed baby on last breast that you feed her with, alternately ( if not emptied - mastitis) Problems experienced in Breastfeeding : 3RD day changes in breast post partum a.)Engorged- feeling of fullness & tension in breast. - sometimes accompanied by fever known as MILK FEVER. Mgt: Warm compress- for breastfeeding mom Cold compress – for bottle feeding & wear supportive bra.

When is involution of breast- 4 weeks b.) Sore nipple – cracked with painful nipple Mgt: 1.) exposure to air – remove bra & wear dress, if not, expose to 20 Watt bulb avoid wearing plastic liner bra - will create moisture, cotton only c.) Mastitis- inflammation of breast : staphylococcus aureus Factors: 1. Improper breast emptying 2. Unhealthy sexual practices -contraindicated for breast feeding - manually express inflamed breast feed on unaffected breast - give antibiotics – can still feed on unaffected breast Contra Indications in Breast Feeding: Maternal Conditions: 1. HIV CMV Hepa B Coumadin Newborn Condition - Inborn errors of metabolism Erythrobastosis Fetalis – Rh incompatibility Hydrops Fetalis Phenylketonuria Galactosemia Tay Sachs disease 5. Establish of waste elimination A. Diff stools 1. Meconium - physiologic stool - black green, sticky, tar like, odorless (Sterile intestine) will pass with in 24 – 36 hrs failure to pass mecomium after 24h- GIT obstruction ex. Hirschsprungs disease imperforate anus mecomium ileus – due to Cystic Fibrosis 2. Transitional stool - green loose & shiny, like diarrhea to the untrained eye 3. Breastfed stool - golden yellow, soft, mushy with sour milk smell, frequently passed - recur every feeding 4. Bottlefed stool – - pale yellow, formed hard with typical offensive odor, seldom passed, 2–3 x/day - with food added -brown & odorous Jaundice baby – light stool Under phototherapy – bright green Mucus mixed with stool - milk allergy Clay colored stool – obstruction to bile duct Chalk clay stool – after barium enema Black stool – GIT bleeding (melena) Blood flecked stool anal fissure. Currant jelly stool – instussusection Ribbon like stool – hirschsprung disease


Steatorrhea stool – fatty, bulky foul smelling odor stool - malabasorption syndrome ( celiac disease or cystic fibrosis) Cult blood – stool exam III Assessment for Well–being APGAR SCORE – Dr. Virginia Apgar Special Considerations: 1st 1 min – determine general condition of baby Next 5 min- determine baby’s capabilities to adjust extra uterinely Next 15 min – dependent on the 5 min A- appearance- color – slightly cyanotic after 1st cry baby becomes pink. P- pulse rate – apical pulse – left lower nipple G- grimace – reflex irritability- tangential foot slap, catheter insertion A – activity – degree of flexion or muscle tone R – respiration Baby cry – within 30 secs Failure to cry after 30 secs – asphyxia near the neatorum Resp. depression – due mom given Demerol.
