Newborn n 18.jpg
This 5-day-old infant is in the alert, quiet state.
  • The baby is placed in the prone position, suspended in the air by the hand placed under the chest.
  • The baby’s head position, back and extremities are observed.
  • The head should stay in the same plane as the back.
  • The back should show some resistance to gravity and not be simply draped over the hand on the chest.
  • The extremities should maintain some flexion tone and not dangle in extension.
  • Ventral suspension is a very good way to assess a baby’s neck and trunk tone.
