Shaking Head While Sleeping At 5 Months Old Baby.?
Excuse me, I want to ask … My child is around 5 months old, he often shakes his head when he sleeps, why is there any particular factor that causes my child to be like that. And also what conditions are not what if like that .. Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Shaking his head while sleeping is generally not a sign of something dangerous, either in infants or adults. The action may be one way that the baby stretches the muscles around his head and neck which are often stiff due to being moved less, or staying too long in one position.
As long as you don't see other danger signs, for example babies appear to have certain muscle stiffness, convulsions, often wake up from sleep and are very fussy for no apparent reason, and so on, chances are that you don't need to worry.
Most importantly, make sure your baby sleeps on a comfortable, flat, and clean base. Don't put pillows or excessive bolsters around the baby. Give baby clothes that are loose and warm during sleep. Also, make sure the baby's nose and mouth are not covered by a blanket so he can be more comfortable when moving and breathing.
If you are very worried about the complaints that your baby is experiencing, it doesn't hurt you to check it directly to the doctor or the nearest pediatrician, huh?
I hope this helps.
