Is It Dangerous To Hold A Baby’s Hand Under 1 Year In A Hanging Position?
Assalamu alaikum, want to ask, is it dangerous if the baby is less than 1 month old, his hands are raised like a monkey hanging?
Hello Nur, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Holding a child's hand, especially a baby in a hanging condition is very very dangerous and is very not recommended to do. Infants who have not erected their necks should always be supported when their neck is held. Lifting the baby in this position does not allow the neck to be denied so it should not be done. Also lifting the baby in this position can cause loose joints in the shoulder. You should never do that to a baby again. If at present there are certain problems in the baby, for example the movement of his hand becomes inactive or if one hand moves more actively and the other hand looks limp, you should immediately take the baby to the pediatrician.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
