Does My 6 Month Old Hurt My Unborn When She Kicks My Belly by Rebecca (Tennessee) When my daughter is fighting sleep she kicks and sometimes I will be lying down with her and she kicks my belly - is this hurting my unborn baby?Answer:Hi Rebecca,Your baby is very well cushioned inside of your womb, so I wouldn't worry too much. It can be really uncomfortable, however, to have your little one kicking you. I have also had two "kickers" when they're fighting sleep.I've found that balling up a small blanket or putting a small pillow in front of my abdomen lets me cuddle the baby close, but still provides a little buffer of protection for my abdomen.If little feet/toes are scratching you during the kicking, put your baby in socks or footed pajamas. It makes a big difference! Click here to post comments Return to Baby / Childbirth / Pregnancy Question.
