So now, you have a Baby, everyone around you is wishing you, visiting you and Happy. Rituals are going on. BUT you are not feeling exactly same; you are getting irritated by attention and feel like crying.
These negative feeling which persist for long period after delivering is termed as Baby bones.
What Are Bones Made Of?
If you've ever seen a real skeleton or fossil in a museum, you might think that all bones are dead. Although bones in museums are dry, hard, or crumbly, the bones in your body are different. The bones that make up your skeleton are all very much alive, growing and changing all the time like other parts of your body.
Almost every bone in your body is made of the same materials:
The outer surface of bone is called the periosteum. It's a thin, dense membrane that contains nerves and blood vessels that nourish the bone.
The next layer is made up of compact bone. This part is smooth and very hard. It's the part you see when you look at a skeleton.
Within the compact bone are many layers of cancellous bone, which looks a bit like a sponge. Cancellous bone is not quite as hard as compact bone, but it is still very strong.
In many bones, the cancellous bone protects the innermost part of the bone, the bone marrow. Bone marrow is sort of like a thick jelly, and its job is to make blood cells.
THESE SIGNS DEVELOP COUPLE OF DAYS AFTER DELIVERY DUE TO SOME HARMONAL CHANGES. LACK OF SUPPORT FROM SPOUSE AND HOUSE MATES OR MAY BE BODY CHANGES AFTER DELIVERY AND HERE ARE SOME TIPS:
Children's bones keep growing throughout childhood. They grow fastest during toddlerhood and puberty
Their bones keep getting bigger and stronger until they reach what's known as "peak bone mass". This usually happens between the ages of 18 and 25.
Building strong bones during childhood will provide protection against the fragile bone disease osteoporosis later in life.
Calcium is particularly vital during puberty when the bones grow quicker than at any other time.
Puberty usually takes place sometime between the ages of 11 to 15 for girls and 12 to 16 for boys.
Research shows that, on average, children and young people in this age group don't get enough calcium.
Foods that contain lots of calcium include dairy foods such as milk, cheese and yoghurt, but also tinned sardines (with the bones in), green, leafy vegetables (but not spinach), peas, dried figs, nuts, seeds and anything fortified with calcium, including some soya and almond milks.
Vitamin D is important for bones because it helps our bodies to absorb calcium.
Vitamin D is made in our skin when it's exposed to sunlight during the summer months (late March/April to the end of September).
It's important never to let your child's skin go red or start to burn. Babies under six months should never go in direct sunlight.
Vitamin D supplements
Your health visitor, pharmacist or GP can advise you on vitamin D supplements for your child.
Bone-strengthening exercises for children
To help build healthy bones:
Eating disorders and bone health
Eating disorders affect people of all ages, both male and female. But girls and women are more likely to be affected, especially during the teenage years.
Teenagers' bones are still growing and strengthening, and eating disorders like anorexia can affect their development.
Low body weight can lower estrogen levels, which may reduce bone strength. Poor nutrition and reduced muscle strength caused by eating disorders can also lower bone strength.
If your teenage child has anorexia or another eating disorder, it's important to get medical advice early on.
