The newborn is sleeping on the belly, babies

Sleep my joy, sleep … And the joy falls asleep only lying on the tummy. And it is almost from the first week of life. What to do? Allow the baby to sleep as he wants, or to sleep for an hour, but to lie on his back? Let’s try to figure it out.

My children slept in any position up to half a year in any position – how to put them. But when they learned to roll over, they began to fall asleep more often just by lying on the tum. To prevent them from doing so, I did not. They slept in the same room with me, and I could hear their every movement. In addition, the beds were covered with calico sheets, no pillows or soft toys.

But in my two nieces, all four children from the first days slept only face down. And they did not care at all about this. What is known about the benefits and harms of such a dream?

It seems to me that if a child quickly falls asleep in such a position, then it is convenient for him. Sleeping in a comfortable posture is more calm. In addition, in this position, the baby feels much more comfortable. The lower part of the body is slightly raised, which means that the blood supply to the brain improves. The muscles of the spine, shoulders and neck are strengthened much faster. If during this sleep the baby also spreads legs widely, then this is simply a wonderful prevention of dysplasia.

Also, many mothers notice that when they sleep on their tummy, babies lose less heat, and therefore they do not freeze. Another plus is that the gut in this position works better. All eaten digested much faster. And little cars accumulate less, and colic is less likely to bother. Yes, and crumbs so much easier to breathe. And if the baby suddenly burp excess milk, then they definitely will not get into the respiratory tract.

Now a little bit of sad statistics. You’ve probably heard of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). The exact reason is still not found out. Many call sleep on the stomach one of the possible factors. But it is also noted that weak premature babies are most at risk. And the truth is, they still have little silenok to lift and turn the head. And if the mattress is also very soft, or my mother decided to put a cushion ….

I also consider it important to note the need to sometimes turn the head of the baby to the other side, so that the muscles of the neck do not numb and the bones of the skull do not deform.

Conclusion

I came to the conclusion that the child should be allowed to sleep in a comfortable position. And if you take precautions, then there is nothing wrong with the baby loves to sleep upside down. In the crib should not be too soft mattresses, pillows and fluffy bedspreads. The bed sheet should be simple and well-filled (so as not to crumple and not bristled under the crumbs).

Well, the main thing – under no circumstances should you leave a sleeping baby unattended.
