Life In Different Cultures

Infants and Toddlers Life in Different Cultures

In my opinion of all cultures of the countries of South America and North America the Infants and Toddlers are different.
Raising children to this stage in both areas of continent   has the importance of "Growth and Development of Child and Adolescent” which this population will be very determinant to have a healthy nations.

I want to talk over biological and physiological factors naturally without attribution to the exogenous social aspects such as economic and political influence are also involved to a healthy population that is due to three orders of reasons:

1) Reason it depends on the child's normal development

2) Reasons depending on their psychological health and biological living environment

3) Reasons that depend on the school and the learning conditions and pedagogy from the schools

But I would like to detail the differences in the upbringing of these children by their mothers, how they nurturing and the participation of family members; which it is a very important aspect of the human life, by referring to different aspects like the emotional, biological and nutrition care.

Statistically 95% Mothers in South America it is instinct maternal breastfeeding and add preventive education within the promotional programs to prevent disease "Mother Child" Which promotes the importance of nutrition for newborns and infants. Breastfeeding has many advantages as biological, immunological and psychological factors ensure to each baby, health for all life
 These advantages for mother breastfeeding it’s strict and completely at least 6 months at any time that baby need.

Breastfeeding is normal and freely where mothers are at any place.
 These 6 months. Continue to introducing homemade blended meals just any family meals under the monitoring nutrition program. But in some cases simultaneously breastfeeding until one year old of age, some are free to continuously to any kind of breastfeeding or infant formula until 18 months.
These infants and toddler spend in the cozy and warm environment of the home until the age of 4 years old under Control and Immunization Program of Growth and Development that are evaluated monthly by nurses at medical centers with give education for the mother to apply early stimulation in different cognitive and motor areas with household resources

In these periods of newborns, infants and toddlers family members are participating in baby care and they do not sending to "Child Care Centers” especially to newborns and infants.

The lives of newborns and infants are different here in North America than in South America 75% of  mothers did not chose breastfeeding. They already take most of decision to immediately be offered with the package  of plan artificial feeding or infant's formula and even before the birth.
Mother's lifestyle are very complicity that they can not keep the opportunity to have breastfeeding their babies.
The majority of mothers have government program where they taking child care centers or nursery. Usually in the  low income and middle income of mothers is locked in opportunity to give their babies and toddlers the natural breastfeeding and others take cares to them, for reasons of time track and distance from home to work that also takes them longer, so it is forced to use such Child Care and other services that are the reasons to be away from their babies and  raised    them out the home most the time. The other factor is that mothers have to support financially in the economic income to meet the needs.
Also family members are unable to help participating in their take care for the same reasons of work.
Well generally The majority of these babies are in disadvantage of breastfeeding as this separates of the valuable benefits of nutritional components of human milk in no way the infant formula is 100% equal to the breast milk also does not have immunologic substances, Which has human milk, The other disadvantage is that they Eliminate the emotional mother-infant bond and lowering the feelings.
About 45% of babies 0-6 months are registered in child care centers supported by government programs WIC.
This kind of live, where to lose Give the reasons, babies, toddlers and mothers are risking the family feeling and love that the baby should receive in their growth and development

Although all the different cultures and countries Promote family life, there are very distinctive differences in the way people behave in their families.


We need  to Support
But life in America for newborn and toddlers is different for the presence often creates barriers to breastfeeding and makes it hard for women to breastfeed. It is time for our society to get serious about giving families the support they need to be successful with breastfeeding. For this reason, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) would like to open up a national dialogue on how to make breastfeeding easier in this country.
