The 10-month-old Child’s Feet Are Often Lifted Up Even When He Is Sleeping?
I sari. I want to ask .
Hello Chalie, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
Responding to your anxiety, until now there has been no research that shows that there are adverse effects or effects that are beneficial for children's health. However, there are some benefits that can be felt by adults who do lifting their legs during sleep, including:
blood flow to prevent edema / swelling in the legs prevent varicose veins in the feet prevent the occurrence of Deep Vein Thrombosis / Deep Vein Thrombosis which can be a risk factor for pulmonary embolism. To maintain the health and growth of your child's development, of course it is necessary to have a good sleeping position for your child every night. For babies and children less than 1 year, of course sleeping on their backs is a good and recommended sleeping position, with a reason to maintain the safety of their respiratory tract.
Related to the position of the legs raised during sleep, as long as they are not carried out during sleep time until they wake up again, it is still not expected to interfere with their health. The position of the foot that is raised up will only add to the sense of comfort when he starts to sleep, so your child does it without feeling disturbed. If it does not interfere with health / in the sense that the airway is not disturbed, or no other symptoms arise such as indigestion, or motor stimulation setbacks mean it does not interfere with health and development so far.
However, it does not hurt if you re-consult the problems you have related to your child's sleeping position with a doctor / pediatrician so that he can directly examine the health condition of your child.
Thus the explanation from us, hopefully helps. Thanks.
