Baby girl-sized shoes can help infants breath better, a new study says.
Baby girl-size shoes, such as baby sandals, can help babies feel more like they are in a small, child-size space, the researchers say.
And they can help them feel more in control of their body temperature when it is cool and warmer.
“In some babies, we see a difference in the way they breathe when they are warm and when they’re cold,” said lead author Dr. Robert A. Dickson, an assistant professor at the University of Arizona.
“The warm-to-cold transition is much more noticeable when they wear a baby girl-style shoe.”
Researchers found that infants in the warm- to-cold range were able to regulate their breathing, including by keeping their heart rate at a lower level and breathing faster.
This allowed them to take in more air, which helped them regulate their body temperatures, the team found.
“The fact that babies can feel more control over their body’s temperature when they go into a girl-type shoe helps with the overall feeling of comfort,” said Dr. A. Scott Kincaid, a professor of medicine and human physiology at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn.
“But in the cold, there is a lot of movement and there is an increase in air pressure and temperature, which is stressful for babies.”
The study, published online this week in Pediatrics, also found that wearing baby girl shoes made infants feel more confident and comfortable in the world around them.
They were also more comfortable in public spaces and they were more likely to walk in groups, the study found.
The research is the first to show a significant benefit of wearing baby shoes in infants.
The shoes, which are made by two-toed shoes, can be worn by babies from babies up to six months old.
They can also be worn at night to help infants feel comfortable while in a warm room.
“It is exciting that these little babies are starting to be able to feel a little bit more comfortable and to be in a place that is a little more comfortable for them to be,” Dickson said.
“And they’re also being able to do things like use their hands and reach out and touch things that they can’t do when they sleep.”
To determine the effectiveness of baby girl sneakers, the scientists conducted a trial in which infants were fitted with a shoe with a tiny little button on the side to release the pressure when the shoe was cold.
They then wore baby girl boots to the nursery.
The infants who wore the baby girl shoe had a significant reduction in temperature in the nursery, and their heart rates were significantly lower than when the baby sandal was worn.
This is important because babies have an internal temperature sensor in their ears called a heart rate monitor, and the baby’s internal temperature helps them feel what their temperature is in the room.
To determine whether baby girl’s shoes made babies feel warmer, the investigators gave the infants a simple task: they had to stand up and run their hands down the middle of their bodies.
They could only do this for about five seconds.
The babies who wore baby sandaled shoes had no problems, but the babies who had the baby shoes had problems in terms of their breathing.
And, again, their heart rhythm was higher in the baby-sized boots than the baby Sandal.
Baby sandals are made from polyester fabric that can be cut and sewn together to make different sizes.
The sandals can be used in baby cribs, but they can also go to baby strollers, play equipment, and even baby car seats.
The study suggests that wearing a baby sandaler, while it can help, may not be the best way to go for newborns who have difficulty with their breathing in warm environments.
“There are ways to make the sandals smaller so they’re comfortable for their newborns to be comfortable in those environments,” said Dickson.
“They’re also making the sandal smaller so that the baby can wear it more often.”
Dr. D. Scott M. Kincahide, a pediatrician at Vanderbilt, said it’s possible that wearing tiny baby sandales may help some babies breathe better.
But, he said, it’s important to remember that the findings do not apply to babies who are already comfortable in their environment.
The findings are the first step in a larger research project that is trying to understand how to help babies who have respiratory problems, such an asthma, with baby girl sandals.
Dr. M. J. B. Kagan, a senior research scientist at Vanderbilt’s Center for Environmental Health Sciences, is the study’s senior author.
Kagan, who is also a pediatric internist, said there are two other studies in the works that look at how babies who were born prematurely are affected by different environmental conditions.
He said they are looking at the effects of different environmental factors on baby babies.Dr B.
