Interesting question: Babies should always start their sleep on their back. There should never be any pillow, blanket, bumper or any other material in the bed after weaning from initial wrapping after birth. Babies die every year that suffocate in pillows or blankets. They should be avoided until they can stand in a crib and prove their ability to move out of a smothering situation.

What is the best sleeping position to fix forward head posture & rounded shoulders? Should I sleep on the floor? What are some stretches to fix this?

What is the best sleeping position to fix forward head posture & rounded shoulders? Should I sleep on the floor? What are some stretches to fix this?

Kyphosis: Poor posture is possible, but underlying scheuermann's kyphosis is also an option. If you have a noticeable hump on your back, likely not postural. Kyphosis is an inherited disorder that results in pain that usually subsides after growth ceases. If persistent, occasionally surgical treatment is warranted. If this is more than a nag, i'd get some x-rays and have a spine specialist check.
