Babies Aged 48 Days Sleep More Soundly On Their Stomachs?
Hello, my ankle is 48 days old why do I fall asleep faster when on my stomach than on my back and also when I put it on my back, I don’t sleep soundly easily awakened due to the Moro effect, but if I put it to sleep on my stomach she is sound … how is the influence of my ankle development? Thank you

Baby sleep habits can vary from one another. In general, babies will sleep longer and soundly when they are laid on their stomachs. This is probably because the baby feels more comfortable as if in a hug.
Sleeping on your stomach is not really dangerous. Sleeping in this position is actually good for preventing the baby's head from turning flat or flat on one side. By sleeping on your stomach too, the risk of the baby experiencing choking will generally be reduced.
However, you need to be more vigilant about watching a baby sleeping on his stomach. Many studies suggest that sleeping on babies is at a greater risk of causing the baby to experience SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome). SIDS itself is a sudden infant death and the trigger is not clear. However, it is suspected that SIDS occurs in association with disorders of the baby's brain that control breathing and awakening from sleep. Aside from the habit of sleeping on your stomach, this condition is more often caused by the following factors:
Physical factors, such as damage to the brain, low birth weight (LBW), respiratory infections
Environmental factors, such as sleeping on soft mats, sleeping together with other people (such as parents or other babies), excessive heat exposure
Therefore, you should avoid your baby from staying in a prone sleep position for too long. When the baby is asleep, you can reverse the sleeping position. You can also support the baby's right and left sides using a pillow while he sleeps on his back to make him comfortable as if he were in a cradle.
That's the explanation from us. For more details, please consult directly with your pediatrician.
I hope this helps.
