What to do when a baby insists on sleeping on his tummy? What to do when a baby insists on sleeping on his tummy?

Many babies insist on sleeping on their stomachs and cannot rest well if they are face up. What to do in this situation? That's our tip for you today!


With a quick search on the internet, we found several texts, videos and comments discussing the best position for baby's sleep and how certain postures may or may not harm their health


The position on the stomach, that is, face down, has been gaining prominence in recent years, mainly because it is associated with Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).


Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)


Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is the death without apparent cause of infants up to 1 year of age, which happens mainly when they are asleep


Even though it has been studied for years by various experts, there is still no known cause for the syndrome. However, it is believed to be related to asphyxia during sleep. 


When the baby is sleeping on his stomach, his breathing tends to be compromised because his cardiorespiratory system is still immature and there is direct contact of the airways with the surface where he sleeps.


Another risk factor is when the baby expels excessive saliva and other fluids during the night to make breathing difficult or impossible. 


The recommendation of the World Health Organisation (WHO) is that the baby sleeps face up. The risks of sudden death decrease by 70% when sleeping in this position, according to information from the American Institute of Paediatrics.


Baby sleeping on his tummy. What to do?


Even against the indications, there are babies who find it difficult to sleep on their stomachs


Many mums and dads report that the baby tends to wake up more often or even cannot fall asleep when he is face up. 


Others say that the child sleeps in the recommended position, but during the night they go back to their tummy down. What should be done in this situation?


The best solution in this case is to pay attention to where your baby is sleeping, more specifically the type of mattress on which he sleeps. For babies who insist on sleeping on their stomachs, the safest thing is for their sleep to take place on a truly breathable mattress.
