Children’s Habits When They Want To Sleep.?
My son is 6 months old, it’s been a few months since he wants to sleep his habit is to put his left foot on his right leg and his hand on his chest, which is tough but tightly grips his feet and his hands. ? nIf it’s in danger, what should I check with a doctor? nThe condition of his body increases every month, his progress is always increasing, his bowel movements and pees are smooth.
We can see the response to pain in infants not only from their posture, but several things that can indicate that the baby is feeling sick are:
The baby cries continuously, it is difficult to calm down Face grins Quick breath Hands and feet are bent / straight tense The child looks restless There are several postures of the child (body posture) which are said to be abnormal and indicate abnormalities in the brain, including:
Decortication. A position in which the arms are bent close to the body or above the chest followed by the legs tensing straight and the legs bent inward. Deserebration. A position in which the head is tilted, arms and legs straightened and fists turned inward. Opistotonus. The position in which the back is tensed to form an arch, with the head looking up. It is difficult to determine whether what is experienced by the mother's child is a disorder or not. It is better if you take your child to a pediatrician if you feel that the movement or posture of the child is unusual. The doctor will ask about the child's birth history, growth and development history, measure the nutritional status and check the child's motor and sensory development, check the baby's reflex, and other tests if needed.
Some things you can do if your baby is feeling sick are:
Position the baby, bend the baby's knees a little. Warm the baby with a blanket or hold / hug. Calm your voice. Breastfeed your baby. Immediately take the baby for a checkup if there are other accompanying complaints such as high fever, persistent vomiting, refusing to breastfeed, seizures.
Hopefully the explanation above is useful.
