Roseous.com - These Reasons For Child Growth and Growth Must Be Monitored Routinely. Every parent certainly expects his child to grow up healthy and smart. Therefore the child's growth and development must always be monitored, especially in the first 1,000 days of life starting from conception in the womb until the child is 2 years old. At the age of 2 years, a child has reached a height of half an adult's height and the development of his brain has reached 80% of the adult brain.

According to Dr. Margareta Komalasari SpA, what is meant by growth is the increase in physical size, while the development is the increase in the ability of the structure and the body's functions become more complex, such as the baby's ability to increase from rolling to sitting, standing and walking.

A child's growth and development is influenced by three factors, namely, genetic, environmental and nutrition. One of these factors is disrupted, so the child's growth and development is not optimal. According to research, the incidence of child developmental disorders is quite high. Basic Health Research 2013 states the incidence of short children due to nutritional problems in Indonesia is 37.2%. To avoid this, parents need to monitor the child's growth and development.

Unfortunately, there are still many parents who pay less attention to monitoring their child's development on a regular basis. Based on an online survey conducted by Teman Bumil, an application for Indonesian mothers, of 1,200 parents, it was found that 37% of parents who monitor their children's routine growth every month. 2.6% routinely records child growth every week, and as many as 2.7% never do it. While as many as 42% only monitor when visiting a doctor.

Every parent usually gets a Health Towards Card (KMS) to monitor the child's growth and development. This card is usually taken every time a child checks into a health center or clinic. In addition to KMS, monitoring children's development can also be through Teman Bumil, a digital application that can be accessed via the device.

"Like KMS, in this application Mums will be facilitated with the Checklist feature that reminds the child's immunization schedule," explained Robyn Soetikno, Teman Bumil Co-Founder in a media gathering, in Jakarta, some time ago.

The importance of regularly monitoring the child's growth and development is also confirmed by Dr. Margretha. "The earlier the problem of growth and development is diagnosed, the greater the possibility that it can be repaired," said Dr. Margaretha from Brawijaya Women & Children Hospital.
