40 Days Old?
Evening, sorry to ask, is it normal if a baby sleeps always on its side hugging a bolster while he is only 40 days old he seems to be comfortable in this position, is it dangerous for his development. Thank you
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Actually there is nothing wrong with sleeping positions for babies, as long as they look comfortable and not in a position that suppresses their freedom to move, such as being swaddled which makes their legs and arms entangled, or on their stomach which can block their breathing even though they can't turn around on their own. it will not interfere with its development.
What is clear is always supervise your child and do not let him suffocate by objects around him such as crushed pillows, dolls or the like. And for the next months, if you notice that your child is not going through the developmental stages that are appropriate for his age, discuss it with your pediatrician immediately. I hope you and your family are always healthy.
That's all, hope it helps.
