The Important of Babies' Movement in the First Year of Life

2014 Journal of Educational and Social Research  
Mother is the closest person and the one who has the greatest affinity to her child, so she must have information on the movement in order to be successful during the growing-up and development phase of the child. On birth a baby does not possess control on their willing movements. The child responses the environment stimulus via the primitive reflexes, which are stereotype and automatic movements. When in the womb, the movements of in the primitive reflexes help the brain development. After

Their presence or their absence is a crucial factor in different phases to set the foundation for the later development. These primitive reflexes must be stopped slowly during the first year of life and for this the movements are ferial must or condition. Every movement is a motored sensory happening linked with the understanding of our physical word, from where the new information generates. During the six-twelve first months of life the baby starts to grow up and mature, so does even the central nervous system. The primitive reflexes are starting to be replaced by more sophisticated regions of the brain. This happens when the survival system model is stopped, and in order to enhance better models of responses, the postural reflexes must be developed instead. Hen postural reflexes replays the primitive reflexes, the baby starts to take control over their body movements. The most of the babies gain immediately the primitive reflexes the first months of their life, thus setting the foundation for their later willing movement. Some children fail to gain full control during the first year of life and continue to grow in reflexive, where some primitive reflexes remain present and postural reflexes are not fully developed. When reflexes continue as in infancy, they interfere with development and can affect movement, visual skills, learning, and emotional well-being.
