On the back or abdomen: how should the baby sleep

While the baby does not know how to roll over independently, pediatricians are advised to put him to sleep in various poses. Optimal positions are: on the right or left side, on the abdomen or on the back.

Each of these positions has its own characteristics.

The position on the right or left side is safe even if the child often regurgitates abundantly. Being on the side, the baby will not be able to choke.

In addition, this position contributes to the discharge of gases, which is important for infants suffering from colic. But children with dysplasia of the hip joints for a long time to stay in this position is not recommended, so as not to increase the load on the joints. Periodically, the baby needs to be shifted from side to side so as not to cause skull or torticollus asymmetry.

For example, in the morning, put the baby to sleep on the right side, and after changing the diaper, after feeding, put it to sleep on the left side.

This is a natural pose for the baby, but there is a danger that the child may choke with the belched masses. To prevent this from happening, after feeding for a while, wear the baby upright in your arms and wait until the air is out.

This position is not suitable for sleep, if the crumbs of hypertonic muscles, runny nose, crusts in the nose, colic or gas.

Useful for children and sleep on the belly. You can try to put the baby to sleep in this position after he is one month old. In such a position, the muscles of the neck and back strengthen, the gases quickly move away, the digestive organs work most efficiently.

But the infant sleeping on its stomach should be under constant supervision, it should not be left alone. You can sleep on your stomach only on a baby-specific orthopedic mattress with a smooth surface.

In the bed should not be pillows, blankets and soft toys, which can accidentally be buried.

Sometimes parents notice that the baby’s head is flatter on one side than on the other. This may be due to a long lying in one position.

Therefore, while the springs are still soft, the position of the baby during sleep must be changed from time to time so as not to cause asymmetry. But note that within a few weeks after birth, a natural posture will be established for the child during sleep. He will choose her himself.

Therefore, you should not turn the sleeping baby all the time. If the baby sleeps soundly, breathes evenly, do not touch it, put it in another pose only after waking.
