Temperament l.jpg
Temperament life and generalize into other areas

Emotion temperament l.jpg
Emotion/Temperament life and generalize into other areas

  • Temperament theory categorizes enduring personality styles based on activity, adaptability, intensity, mood, persistence, distractibility, regularity, responsivity, approach/withdraw from novelty

    Chess and Thomas 1970

Temperament22 l.jpg
Temperament life and generalize into other areas

  • Easy: approaches novelty, positive mood, adaptable, regular, active, low intensity

  • Slow to warm: withdraws from novelty, low mood, low activity, moderate to low intensity, cautious

  • Difficult: withdrawing, low adaptability, high intensity, low regularity, negative mood

Developmental changes l.jpg
Developmental Changes life and generalize into other areas

  • Oral cavity enlarges and tongue fills up less

  • Tongue grows differentially at the tip and attains motility in the larger oral cavity.

  • Elongated tongue can be protruded to receive and pass solids between the gum pads and erupting teeth for mastication.

  • Mature feeding is characterized by separate movements of the lip, tongue, and gum pads or teeth

Development of infant feeding skills l.jpg
Development of Infant Feeding Skills life and generalize into other areas

  • Birth

    • tongue is disproportionately large in comparison with the lower jaw: fills the oral cavity

    • lower jaw is moved back relative to the upper jaw, which protrudes over the lower by approximately 2 mm.

    • tongue tip lies between the upper and lower jaws.

    • "fat pad" in each of the cheeks: serves as prop for the muscles in the cheek, maintaining rigidity of the cheeks during suckling.

    • feeding pattern described as “suckling”

Slide33 l.jpg
How? Complementary foods (JADA, 2004)

  • Establish healthy feeding relationship

    • Recognize child’s developmental abilities

    • Balance child’s need for assistance with encouragement of self feeding

    • Allow the child to initiate and guide feeding interactions

    • Respond early and appropriately to hunger and satiety cues
