Any Thoughts???

Any Chiropractor or Chiropractor husbands??

It made me wonder last night...... I am putting on my babys night time diaper and its pretty thick. So there is defiantly about and inch of diaper in the back.
So when we go to lay him on his back he will have that lift or lump pushing his back up in that lower back area. I just learned that an infants spine actually curves in more of a fetal position. So not only are we advised to put them on there back flat but then adding an even further upward push in the lower back with the diaper.

Im wondering what some one in this field of work would say?? Someone who knows about bodies and alignments.

I also know a lot of people think that what we do to our bodies when we are young affects the body later in life.

ANY THOUGHTS??

The only thing that I thought of is that their bones are very pliable until they are two. I haven't heard of any problems from the night time butt.

My daughter sleeps on her belly so I don't worry. I can ask my chiro about it whenever I next go though.

I think I may start to do belly also. I was just at a meeting about baby wearing from someone who actaully took classes on it and teaches correct wearing. They say its a huge deal about the babys body position and how you are wearing them. That certian holds may hurt the babies hips and be uncomfortable for there backs especially when they are young and their backs are still naturally curved a certian way. So I dont see how the diaper would be different. And actaully they are on there back way longer than being worn..... My guy seems to like curing up to sleep better anyway so tummy sleeping sounds like a good plan and a good solution
