Your little miracle still does not know how to do a lot. He still can't explain what exactly bothers him or interests him, so mom has to guess everything herself. For example, why does the child bend? If he cries at the same time, it is worth being wary. After all, such gestures can be signs of some kind of disease. Let's look into this in more detail.
1. One of the reasons for your baby's anxiety may be increased intracranial pressure. But this (though very controversial) diagnosis is accompanied by some signs: the newborn has an enlarged fontanel, and the venous mesh on the head is clearly visible. Your baby often regurgitates, is sluggish and does not gain weight well – all this, in addition to arching the back, should alert mom and make her consult a neurologist.
2. High muscle tone. To check this, put a palm under the back of the baby's head and try to tilt the baby's head down with it so that he touches his chest with his chin. If this is difficult, then the child has increased muscle tone, and he needs the help of specialists. Usually, such toddlers are prescribed a massage, they are offered to carry the child "in a column" and rub a special gel into the lumbar and neck area.
3. Colic is also the reason why your child bends back a lot. Unfortunately, this phenomenon is not uncommon: colic occurs in three-week-old babies and, as a rule, significantly decreases by the age of 4 months. Signs of this problem are crying crumbs, during which he may have gases, legs pressed to the tummy and arched back. Colic occurs in the late afternoon and delivers a lot of unpleasant minutes to both the baby and his parents. To ease the baby's condition, contact your pediatrician.

When will the kittens' eyes open and how to properly care for them?
Cats are probably the most popular pets right now. This is understandable – they are more self-sufficient than dogs, require less attention, and care for them is as simple as possible. And what else is needed for a person who spends all day at work? ...
If your inquisitive treasure sees something interesting behind him, then this will also be followed by a back arching. However, the baby will not be naughty at the same time. Turn the little researcher to face the object of interest and let him see everything properly.
But with the help of arching the back, the child can also demonstrate his character. As a rule, such "attacks" are also accompanied by grunting and angry snuffling. Thus, the baby tries to determine for himself the boundaries of what is permissible, makes the first attempts to influence his mother. Such situations are natural and require the mother to be able to calmly and confidently guide the baby, not to be led by his desires and whims.
Growing up, the child bends backwards, trying to roll over on his tummy to, for example, reach a toy. At first, he does it with difficulty – help him. A little later, the baby will be able to make such an important movement himself.
As you have already understood, it is possible to figure out why the child bends. To do this, you just need to carefully observe him. After all, the reason may be both a blocked nose (at the same time, you can usually hear the baby "grunting") and a bad mood of a little man. The main thing is not to fuss and not to panic. And in case of suspicion of the disease, consult a doctor. Grow up healthy!
