6 Common Ways to Hold a Child That Can Be Dangerous for Their Health

3. Keeping the baby’s head on your shoulder

If you hold your baby chest to chest, then you should pay attention to the position of their face. It should be above the shoulder. If the kid’s face rests against your shoulder, it can make breathing difficult. Also, part of your clothes may get into their mouth.

4. Not changing sides

It’s necessary to switch the sides that you carry your kid on. As we said earlier, baby’s necks are weak. So it’s important that the muscles develop on both sides. Otherwise, the neck muscles on one side may develop less and the child could have problems with turning their head.
