Is the rounded back harmful to my baby?

Fragen und Antworten

No. Midwives and doctors recommend the rounded suspine position. Similar to babywearing in a wrap there is no pressure point weight bearing but each part of the spinal column is stressed evenly. The difference between the posture inside a hammock or a infant carrier seat is the curvature of the spinal column. In the infant carrier seat your baby is in a sitting position - meaning the weight of the head compresses spinal column, dorsal vertebras and lumbar vertebras. In a hammock your baby is lying on its back. The spinal column is rounded on the whole length evenly. Also, the supine position makes it easier to let go of gases trapped in the bowel.
