Questions and Answers

    • A.

      Infant response

    • B.

      Moro reflex

    • C.

      Infant reflex

    Correct Answer
    B. Moro reflex
    Explanation
    The Moro reflex is a natural response that occurs in infants when they feel a sudden loss of support or experience a startling sensation. It is characterized by the baby throwing their arms and legs outwards and then bringing them back in towards their body. This reflex is believed to be a protective mechanism that helps infants cling to their caregivers and maintain their balance. It is also commonly referred to as the startle reflex.

    When being held, babies are unable to support themselves.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Babies are unable to support themselves when being held because their muscles and bones are still developing and are not strong enough to hold their own weight. They rely on the support of an adult or caregiver to hold them securely and provide stability. This is especially true for newborns and young infants who have limited control over their movements. As they grow and develop, babies gradually gain more strength and control over their bodies, eventually being able to support themselves when being held.

  • 3. 

    Why is it a good idea to have a regular time for bathing the baby?

    • A.

      They get used to a routine

    • B.

      It saves on cleaning products

    • C.

      It makes it easier for visitors

    Correct Answer
    A. They get used to a routine
    Explanation
    Having a regular time for bathing the baby is a good idea because it helps the baby get used to a routine. Babies thrive on consistency and predictability, so having a set time for bathing can provide a sense of security and comfort for them. It also helps establish healthy sleep patterns and can make other daily activities more predictable. Additionally, having a regular bathing routine can make it easier for parents to plan their day and ensure that they have all the necessary supplies and assistance ready for bath time.

  • 4. 

    All babies enjoy being bathed.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement claims that all babies enjoy being bathed. However, this is a generalization and cannot be true for every single baby. Some babies may not enjoy being bathed due to various reasons such as fear of water, sensitivity to temperature, or discomfort during the bathing process. Therefore, it is not accurate to say that all babies enjoy being bathed.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    It is not considered safe to let a baby sleep on their stomach.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Sleeping on the stomach, also known as prone sleeping, is considered unsafe for babies. This position increases the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). When a baby sleeps on their stomach, they may have difficulty breathing as their face can get pressed against the mattress or bedding. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that babies be placed on their back to sleep, as it is the safest sleep position. This reduces the risk of SIDS and ensures optimal safety for the baby during sleep.

    Most infants give their first controlled smile at what age?

    • A.

      6 weeks

    • B.

      8 weeks

    • C.

      12 weeks

    Correct Answer
    A. 6 weeks
    Explanation
    Infants typically give their first controlled smile at around 6 weeks of age. This milestone is an important social and emotional development, indicating that the baby is starting to recognize and respond to their caregivers. It is a significant moment for parents as it signifies the beginning of their baby's ability to engage in social interactions and form emotional connections.

    • C.

      To save time

    • D.

      To train the baby to feed from a spoon

    • E.

      To prevent tantrums from occurring

    • F.

      To make the baby less nutritionally dependent on milk

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. To establish the acceptance of a variety of foods
    D. To train the baby to feed from a spoon
    F. To make the baby less nutritionally dependent on milk
    Explanation
    The objectives of weaning are to establish the acceptance of a variety of foods, to train the baby to feed from a spoon, and to make the baby less nutritionally dependent on milk. Weaning introduces solid foods to a baby's diet, allowing them to explore different tastes and textures. Feeding from a spoon helps develop their motor skills and encourages independent eating. Gradually reducing milk intake and increasing solid food intake helps transition the baby to a balanced diet and reduces their dependence on milk for nutrition.
