Dangerous games for babies
What you should never do to the baby when playing or moving
As much as you have heard your grandmothers, mothers and neighbors, we warn: babies are not rubber, sometimes they break.
There are games and movements that we make with the lifelong babies that can cause irreversible injuries and even death.
We tell you what are the 5 most dangerous games you should never do with a baby.
The 5 games and dangerous moves you should never do with a baby
1- Shake it: It is clear that babies cry, and sometimes they cry and cry, putting our nerves to the surface. The neck vein swells and we get desperate. So, in that moment of instant madness, we come up with the most intelligent solution in the world: “we shake it”, because with that we will not shut up the baby but we will take a break for a while.
Great, now you have a scared baby that cries more than before, and you are just as desperate, but knowing that you have been able to cause brain damage to the child.
When you move the baby from front to back with force, it is the same as if you moved a clapper inside a bell, or as if you had suffered a frontal traffic accident. That is, the fragile and weak musculature of the neck of the baby, does not hold his head, and the sudden movement causes his small brain to hit against the bones of the skull, causing serious brain damage, eye hemorrhages, retinal detachment, injuries in the spinal cord, and even death.
So the next time you feel like leaking, go to the gym, hit a few jumps or do yoga.
2- Turn the baby around holding his arms or hands: Children love to have them spinning, and the more dizzy they get, the funnier they seem. But let’s recap it well. The child suffers in his body two opposite pressures; On the one hand, the inertia that pushes him to fly off into space, and on the other, the hand of his father who grabs him as if there were no tomorrow. We might think that it is good to grow, if it were the inquisition, but it is not so. The child not only does not grow but can suffer an injury called “Babysitter’s elbow”, which means that the bone of the elbow comes out of its place, as well as the ligament and that it hurts a lot.
As it is only about the child having a good time, it is better if you take him from the armpits if you want to spin him or ride him in an approved Uncle Vivo.
3- Do not pull the child’s arm when it is thrown to the ground. Many children throw themselves on the floor when they get a tantrum, so we grab them by the arm and pull hard to get up. We even carry his arm against his will all over the street while screaming and bellowing. Well, it’s the most common thing in the world, but I still remember my mother’s scared face when she took my arm off my brother’s shoulder. We had to go to the hospital to have it placed and since then it was constantly coming out. He has never been an elite tennis player and now he is a doctor.
4- Do not throw it into the air, I assure you it will not cross the atmosphere, the force of gravity is too powerful. But the child loves that interior emptiness in the tripilla, and although you have done it a thousand times and nothing has ever happened, it depends on how strong you may be that you suffer the same consequences as the shaken baby syndrome, especially during the first months of life.
5- The famous father’s somersault. Who has not been flipped between his legs? It’s one of the most exciting memories of my childhood life. But of course, I was growing and asking “Daddy give me the cart” and my father pulled all his muscles to try to hold my weight and gave me the cartwheel with a constipated face, until one day my head hit the ground because It was almost as long as him. The face of my father was a poem, since I almost broke my neck. Then it was when I realized that it was time to leave the cartwheels and get to play the parchís, which is much less dangerous, although I eat the five chips and count 20.
