"Tuck" in context

Tuck is a sleeping position where a person curls up with their legs bent and arms wrapped around their body or legs. It is often used when the person wants to make themselves as small as possible, seek security or comfort, or feel warm. Tucking can also be a sign of self-protection and taking refuge. It is generally a comfortable position for resting; for instance, it may be used as an alternative to lying down in order to sleep in a cramped area or to protect a sore from becoming aggravated. Babies are often found in the tuck position when they are asleep due to their preference for it.
