As if I wasn't paranoid enough, DS2 is rolling onto his belly at night. I wake up every hour or so and flip him back over onto his back, which pisses him off. I can't take this, I'm so worried about him sleeping on his belly. I spoke to the pedi about it and she said since he can flip himself back onto his back, and can raise himself onto his arms and legs, he's fine. But I still worry.

Anyone else crazy like me?

T has done that a couple of times without waking herself up, I just flip her back and she doesn't wake up. Now usually if she flips herself she also wakes herself up. But yeah once they can flip on their own not a lot you can do to stop them.

I know this is easier said than done, but as your pedi said, he is fine since he can do it on his own and hold himself up. He probably is more comfortable that way. And, just in case it is the back to sleep craze that has you nervous, there are new studies out there that are starting to show that that may not have anything to do with things like SIDS. Being a mom is so nerve wracking without these other things that we have to worry about, you aren't crazy, you are a mom, a natural worrier

I've been going through the exact same thing. Christian likes to roll to his belly and then sleep with his face crammed into the mattress. It terrifies me. Our Pediatrician also told us it was fine since he was able to roll around but I still hate it. DH even put him in his swing the other night to sleep because Christian wouldn't quit sleeping on his face.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

When I woke up (darn reflux) at 4 am this morning I peeked in on T, she was on her tummy. I just flipped her, she flipped to her side and went back to sleep.

I'm giggling bc I don't have this issue bc my LO doesn't sleep! I looked back at posts and once upon a time (at 3 months) he slept through the night. Now at 8 months he wakes up at least 3 times. I'm guessing it's teeth (though I don't see anything yet). So- sleeping on his belly hasn't been a concern for me bc he doesn't stay in that position too long!

Harlow is not rolling over yet, but I remember feeling so paranoid with Tatum when she started rolling over. My husband and I would go in there and flip her several times during the night, it finally got to the point where we were so tired from lack of sleep when she just rolled back over to her belly anyways, Chris told me that we have to stop worrying so much and get some sleep. She was fine, still sleeps on her belly to this day.
