what his sleep reveals about him

What is your child's personality depending on how they sleep? According to a study by the Sleep Institute in the UK, the position adopted by children at bedtime could determine their personality. Will you recognize any of these with your cherub?

Some research shows that the position in which children sleep is directly linked to their personality. According to Chris Idzikowsky, professor and director of the Sleep Institute in the United Kingdom, one could indeed decipher a few character traits through their posture.

If all mothers know their little ones well, this is a fun way to understand what your child looks like. And above all, to decipher certain sides of his personality, which best define him.

Babies generally adopt a series of positions during sleep with which they are most comfortable. Here are the conclusions of this study, to say the least interesting.

The posture of the trunk

In this posture, the child generally sleeps on its side, in an upright position, and thus resembles a trunk. He keeps his arms outstretched, next to the body. Her legs are straight and close together.

According to the study, brats sleeping in this position are generally calm, very sociable – especially with children their age – and have a lot of fun during group games.

The starfish posture

In this case, the child sleeps on his back, legs apart and straight. The arms are folded up and around the pillow, as if he wanted to hug it.

The so-called starfish posture would be adopted by the little ones who can easily be loved by others, and create friendships. They are also often very generous, disinterested children. On the other hand, they hate to be the center of attention.

The "melancholy" posture

Here, the child is sleeping on his side, his legs are straight and close together and his arms are stretched forward. One hand can be placed under the pillow.

According to the study, cherubim adopting the "melancholy" posture (also called nostalgia) tend to be stubborn. No matter what they are told, it will not stop them from achieving their goal. They usually do not have problems in their relationships with others because they are very social, even if they do not trust everyone at the start. They remain cautious and wary when they do not know each other’s most intimate secrets and thoughts.

Fetal posture

The child's position is tilted, his legs are brought back towards his chest. This is one of the most common postures and the way the legs move closer to the person's chest is directly related to their sensitivity. In principle, these cherubs tend to appear shy, but when they gain confidence, they are very affectionate and very sensitive.

The posture of "free fall"

In this posture, the child is upside down in the bed. We talk about free fall because it seems to have fallen from the sky. His legs are straight and straight and his head is tilted to the side. His arms are spread apart and placed upwards around his head.

These children are generally rebellious, independent and very attached to the feeling of freedom. They do not readily accept criticism or receive orders. They often reject rules and constraints. They are "free spirits".

Soldier posture

These are children who sleep on their backs as if they were in military training. The arms are placed on the sides of the body, straight like the legs, and slightly apart. These are usually bits of reserved and introverted people who don't like to be the center of attention or to speak for themselves. They are very loyal and faithful people, especially with their loved ones. Clearly, those you can always trust.
