Hey friends, it’s Quick Tip Tuesday where I answer a quick question submitted by you my awesome podcast listeners. If you have a question you want me to answer on a Quick Tip Tuesday episode, go over to my website, Angel swan.com/quick tip and submit your question. So today’s submission is from anonymous, and she says, I’m afraid to sleep because I’m worried my baby will choke on their spit up. So anonymous, I’m going to call you Annie just to make things simpler. So Hi, Annie. And Annie, I totally remember having this fear myself. Your postpartum hormones are going crazy. And you have anxiety about all the ways that your baby could get hurt. And it’s just a natural instinct as your baby’s protector to be hyper vigilant and constantly looking for ways to prevent any harm from coming to your baby. But any I’ve got good news for you. And I need to preface this by saying I’m not a medical professional. And this is not medical advice. Disclaimer disclaimer. But babies have a natural reflex to swallow. This means even when laying flat on their back, if they do spit up in their mouth, they have a natural reflex to just swallow it. So you definitely don’t need to be up all night to monitor your baby’s spitting up. And on top of that babies are super noisy, especially when they sleep. So before you get up to check on them and disturb them and possibly even wake them up when they were actually just sleeping and being a noisy little baby. Remember that if they really need you, they will cry for you. I know it’s hard to sleep, especially when you have a newborn. But if you have a healthy baby, there’s really no reason to keep yourself up all night to watch them sleep because you need sleep just as much as they do. And that’s that’s it super short and sweet.
