junior foods, cheerios, crackers, small pieces of fruit; NO grapes, carrots, raisins, marshmallows, hot dogs or honey.
Vomiting and Diarrhea in the newborn
very dangerous; body comp. 75-80% water mostly ECF=> rapid dehydration.
Development Benchmarks- 3m
some head lag, regards hand, pulling motion, interest in environment, recognition to objects and faces, vocalization= cooing, babble, chuckles;
Development Benchmarks- 5m
palmer graps, sitting, rolls side to side, teeth, BW dbl, Smiles, fam from strangers, playful, vowels.
Development Benchmarks- 6m
Pincer grasp small object and manipulations, Tripod position, rolls back to abdomen, stranger anxiety, arms out, likes and dislikes, peek a boo, vocal imitation.

identifiable cause; common= CHD, DF, HIV, Metabolic Syndrome; less common= endocrine, neurologic condition or lesions and GERD malabsorption syndrome.
Non-Identifiable medical causes; maybe Psychological= Accidental, Neglectful, Deliberate;
Physical Assessments in FTT
weight falls below 5th%, decline in growth curve, delays in developmental milestones, language delays, decreased muscle mass, abdominal distention, hypotonic, weakness, feeding and dietary hx;
Diagnostic Testing in FTT
Comprehensive hx, Developmental Sx, Nutritional Sx, Growth Curve, Urinalysis, Swerat CL Test, Stool specimen, T4;
Sudden infant death syndrome; leading cause of death in infants 90% of cases >6m; More common= M, 2-4m, in winter or spring.
Factors of SIDS
ALTE, cyanosis, respiratory distress, preemie, multiple births, exposure to smoking, poor prenatal care, poor weight gain of mom, brainstem defect, prone sleeping, sibling with SIDS, irish twins, soft bleeding, use of pillows;
Apparent Life Threatening Event; apnea, change in color (pallor, cyanosis, redness), change in muscle tone (usually hypotonia), choking, gagging, or coughing, and which usually involves a significant intervention and even cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) by the caregiver who witnesses the event
Post SIDS interventions
contact fam, friends, clergy; SIDS support group referral; Compassionate/Empathetic Care; Fam advocacy in ER, Allow time, take hand/foot prints, locks of hair and photos;
Leading causes of Infants Death
Congenital anomalies, Complications of prematurity, shaken baby syndrome, neonatal infections, Accidental (MVA, drowning);
lye, acid, strong cleaning products; assess and manage airway, do not induce vomiting; gastric lavage and NS.
OTC, Rx meds, simple cleaners, plants, alcohol; Do Not induce vomiting, administer activated charcoal, manage effects of substance ingested.
Prevention of Poisoning
keep out of reach, discard old medications, do no buy large size OTC drugs, store things in original containers, never tell children that medication is "candy"
Sources of Lead poisoning
pipes, paint, soil, dust near industries and roadways, ceramic ware, leaded gas, folk remedies, candy from mexico.
Effects of Lead poisoning
interferes with making hemoglogin, anemia; damages proximal tubules= glucosuria, proteinuria, ketonuria, chelating agents; Nuerologic= blocks calcium= impulsive, hyperactive, clumsy, speech.
provide family with lead poisoning education, follow-up testing, and social service referral if necessary.
Provide family with lead poisoning education (dietary and environmental), follow-up testing, and social service referral as needed; if BLL persists, initiate actions for BLL of 20 to 44mcg/dl.
provide coordination of care, clinical management, environmental investigation and lead hazard control.
within 48 hours, provide coordination of care and clinical management, including treatment, environmental investigation and lead hazard control. The child must not remain in a lead-hazardous environment if resolution is to occur.
Immediately provide medical treatment and begin coordination of care, clinical management, environmental investigation, and lead hazard control.
always in back seat, disable airbags for small children, flat seat belts and straps, appropriate clothing.
Age 4- Gross Motor Skills
skip/hop on one foot, catch a ball, throw a ball overhand, and walk down stairs alternating.
Age 5- Gross Motor Skills
preschooler skips on alternating feet, jumps rope, skates with good balance.
Stage of Industry...
attitude's towards work, skill development, independence, goal achievement, peer approval is important.
glascow, cranial nerves, natural state, LOC, spontaneous movement and reactions. = playful, irritable, cranky.
developmental dysplasia of the hip- use Ortolani and Barlow tests- abducting the thighs to test the hip for subluxation or dislocation. [other signs= shortening of limb asymmetric thigh and gluteal folds, or broadening of perineum]
