What are the behaviors that affect the baby's appearance?
I don’t know if the parents are aware that some bad habits of the baby in daily life will affect the appearance, such as opening the mouth to sleep and eating fingers, then what other behaviors affect the appearance of the baby? Why is there such a situation? Come and read the full text.
1. Breathe with your mouth for a long time
Normally, we breathe through our nose, but many babies like to breathe through their mouth, especially at night when they sleep. If this is the case for a long time, the problem will be serious, and it will easily lead to facial deformities of the child.
The baby’s nasopharynx is narrow and breathing with the mouth for a long time, the hard palate will be deformed due to the impact of the airflow, such as poor bite, irregular teeth, short and thick upper lip. In addition, it may cause ectopic bones, and nearby muscles are also affected differently.
Breathing with your mouth for a long time not only affects your appearance, but is also detrimental to your health. If you breathe directly with your mouth, the harmful substances in the air will be inhaled into your body without being overtaken, which can easily cause various diseases. Besides, the mouth is not a breathing organ, and the breathing rate is far less than that of breathing with the nose. Over time, the body will be hypoxic, which is not conducive to growth and development. Therefore, if you find that your baby is used to breathing with his mouth, he must be corrected in time.
2. Like to eat fingers
Before the age of 3, babies will have the habit of eating fingers. This is a normal phenomenon. Parents should not worry too much. Just pay attention to clean your baby's hands.
But if the baby still has the habit of eating fingers after the age of three, it should be taken seriously. Frequent finger sucking can cause malformation of teeth, malocclusion of teeth, uncoordinated face, and affect the overall appearance of the child's face.
3. Do not quit feeding bottles for a long time
The baby is 2 or 3 years old, and many mothers are still used to letting him drink milk from a bottle. This is not recommended. Although bottle feeding is convenient, it will affect the development of teeth. Over time, it will lead to deformation of teeth and lips, resulting in unsightly phenomena such as ground cover and horse face, making the baby longer and uglier. It is recommended that after the baby reaches 1 year old, everyone helps him to quit the bottle slowly, and it is best to quit completely at about 1 and a half years old.
