26 BRIDGEPORT POST Tuesday,-May 23, 19/2 Child Guidance-- --By Joan Berk , Hnl «l a IHW Dgtl_fv Da«l Mr Your official promotion to the new status and title of father is marked by the great exhilaration and excitement of your baby's birth, congratulations of your colleagues, the masculine ritual of cigars, and the ultimate proof of your virility. There's even o last chance for a few days of freedom while the infant and mother are still in tj, e hospital. But the arrival of mother and baby at home immediately ends this euphoria and plunges you into unfamiliar and urgent problems. Many of the executive strategies you have learned not only are inappropriate but are counterproductive now. To cope, . you must develop new skills, methods of dealing with person; nel, and economies. Expect to feel threatened and insecure during this process. Your first problem is to provide for your offspring's physical welfare--tasks that total at least four to five hours a day, unequally distributed at inconvenient times. Because of the large volume of this work, you'll probably have to pitch in your- sell. Babies Are Deceptive The physical handling of a new baby looks easy when you watch it in the hospital nursery. But like a golf siring o r a tennis serve, this case is deceptive for the skills must be mastered with practice. A new baby isn't as fragile as he looks; he won't break. But he does scream, wiggle, jerk, arch his back, and flop in ways that make him awkward to hold. He can't help his uncoordinated movements, and he needs to be handled firmly and securely, yet with great gentleness. Long before his birth, during the 2d, 3d, and 4th months of pregnancy, an unborn infant has plenty of room to stretch, exercise, and develop his growing muscles. He moves around in the watery environment of his mother's womb, at the end of his umbilical cord, as gracefully, easily, and wightlessly as an astronaut in outer space But during the last weeks before birth, his increasing size cramps him and traps him in awkward positions. After birth it takes many weeks before he gains firm control over his muscles and can make his arms and legs obey his conscious intentions- , Cope with Gravity A newborn, infant also must learn to cope with gravity for the first time. His flailing arms and legs no longer encounter the confining, protecting walls of the uterus, and he sometimes seems to startle and scare himself into screaming by his own random movements. You can o f t e n comfort your fussing, crying, offspring by holding him closely. This is why it's easier to pick him up if you wrap him securely in a receiving blanket first, and why you can sometimes soothe him by p u t t i n g your big, warm, masculine hand gently on his abdomen )Qr back. You also must support of his life. lengcs, Y( out soiled diapers Lewd Film Leads to Indictment Of 6 Charged as Sex Deviates ; MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) -Lewd film at a Long Island drug store reportedly led to an investigation and indictment against six persons in con nection with what was de scribed as an international club of sex deviates using the serv ices of young boys. - Nassau County Dist.
