Can Accidentally Pressing A Newborn's Stomach Cause Any Damage?
I have a 3 weeks old baby boy. Today while kissing on his forehead while standing, somehow I slipped and my right hand pressed his stomach little hard. Just wanted to check if pressing his stomach little hard would have done any damage to his stomach. I know it could be a stupid question but just wanted to ask for my peace of mind.
Thanks & Regards,
Not a cause for concern.
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.
I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Let me assure you that the mentioned level of pressure is unlikely to do any harm. Had it actually harmed him, the child would have broken into incessant cry and would have been in a visibly worsening state. Since that is not the case you have no reason to be worried about. The question is not stupid, it just shows that you care. I appreciate it.
Let me know if I could help further.
