    While babies are asleep you are suppose to "rotate" them so that they are on their back sometimes and their stomach other times. I do believe that not doing this does cause flattening at the back of the skull.

    btw, ask your mothers if they "rotated" you
    I envision a world where people dawning long white robes and elaborate headdresses run rampant down the streets, waving their arms in the air while screaming "we've gone mad, we've gone mad", like defrocked monks breaking the silence of ages past.

There is a certain tradition in Russia, for example, to enwrap the whole body and head of the baby really tightly with linen, so that only the face remains uncovered. The procedure allegedly reduces screaming, but has, as need not to be mentioned, many disadvantages, as the infant cannot interact with the environment and train its coordination. Maybe that - or a similar procedure - is meant by cradling?

    Kind regards,

    to me that sounds rather like simple cruelty actually

    Tsk Tsk!

    Some children, generally White and Asian children, are born with 'holes' in the tops of their heads where the skull has not fully closed. I usually hear them called 'soft spots'. This gap grows together within a few weeks or perhaps months after birth, depending on the child.

    Also, infant skulls are often not fully hardened for a few weeks or months after birth. When an infant is left to sleep on its back on a hardish surface for extended periods of time, the skull can be 'dented'. There are cases of skulls being dented during infancy and never returning to the original shape, but it is usually so minor that it's not noticeable. There have been some extreme cases where the infant skull suffered a severe non-lethal blow and the dent remained for life and was very noticeable.

    Preemies are more at risk for this type of injury.

    • Have full-term babies. A full-term is about 9 1/2 months from conception.
    • Protect the 'soft spot' on your infant's head.
    • Place a soft mattress in the child's crib and rotate him so that he is not always lying on his back. Some research also shows that infants sleeping on their stomachs are less likely to die from SIDS.
    • Don't let the child's head flop around like a rag doll. Support his head until he is strong enough to do it himself.

      And most importantly,
    • Don't let Thorburn babysit your infants.


    Okay, I know this was off-topic, but this is where it was brought up!

    I wonder if he uses the term cradling for swaddling, which is wrapping the infant in strips of fabric exposing only the face. I've only read that this possibly stunts growth (I dunno, it seems like the average height and body size of Russia is comparible to other European nations). It's done in early infancy to give the baby the secure feeling it had in the womb, and Russians believe it helps strengthen a baby's bones. Because the baby can't move the arms and legs, their eyes are said to get more exercise, and be more expressive later in life.
