Who else's baby is sleeping on their belly? Jacob started this last week and now will only sleep on his belly with his face pressed into the mattress. I hate it. I will turn him over or try to turn his head and back he goes. DH says not to worry but it still worries me. I figure at 9 months he is big enough to be able to turn his head if he needs air but I am up half the night checking on him. Anybody's else have a baby sleeping like this? does it drive you crazy also?
Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy
When out LO was smaller, he would love to have his hand or blanket over his mouth and nose. We assummed he loves the warmth of his own breath. Now our LO sleeps on his side, and sometimes on his tummy. He rolls himselft to that position, and there are times we find him with his head/face against the bumper of his crib. Not pressed against it, but close. He seems to self soothe himself that way.
If you are nervous, you can alway purchase the mat monitor/sensor. My friend had it... basically babies always stir, even in their sleep. this mat is placed under the sheets. If baby doesn't stir for a given amount of time, the sensor alarm will go off, and you can check on baby. it really works, and could give you piece of mind. The sell them at target or babies r us.
