But I have a good enough reason!

Ok, so we put Coleson in his crib about a week and a half ago. He is finally doing alot better at night and only waking once to eat. When I lay him in his crib, he is already alseep and he snuggles up to the side of the crib. (We dont have any bumpers.) Then all of a sudden he goes face down almost. Like im sooo serious. I can see it on his video monitor. After like 30 seconds he will move though, and then go right back to the same. I hate it!!!! Its worrying me to pieces! And sometimes when I wake up to check on him in the night, hes the same way. He doesnt always do this but he does it several times a night! I dont know what to do. I go and move him if he stays that way to long though. But I know he is doing this when im sleeping and dont have any control over it.

What do I do??? Any advice??

Im being soo paranoid/worried! I pray every night that he will be okay!! And I know his little life is in Gods hands, but I cant help but worry!

Jonah sleeps face down also. I go in there several times during the night with a flash light to see if he is breathing. Last night I worried so much I just ended up putting him in bed with me. I read that if they can get onto their tummies on their own there is no more controlling what position they sleep in.

Sorry, mama!

If he can turn like that, then he is strong enough to move if needed. It's natural to worry, but I'm sure he will be fine!

Jayden sleeps on his stomach every night and he sleeps on his face sometimes too. I get really worried too and randomly check on him all night.

I bought movement alarms for that reason. Our main baby monitor is an Angelcare but I also have a Snuza which clips to his diaper. We have had a false alarm or two, but I'd much rather that!

I heard the same thing about them being strong enough to move their heads at this point and the back recommendation is mostly for when they are first born.

My first slept on her tummy from day 1, my 2nd when he learned to turn back to front. The pedi told me at Esther's 4m appointment that I should put her down on her back, but no worries if she turns over, she will move her head/body if she needs to. Just keep the fluffy stuff out of the way.

Both of my dds have slept on their tummy for most of their lives. If they are strong enough to get themselves facedown, they are strong enough to lift up their face if they feel they are not getting air. I know that does not help us worry warts but I just pray and let them be. I check on her once in a while but I have learned to live with it.

That's why Elijah sleeps in the bed with me!

In all seriousness, I understand how you feel. I pray every night, also. Their little lives are in God's hands and that is a powerful thing. Don't worry!

Thank you ladies! That made me feel much better!

Coleson is strong and moves when he needs to. But its the fact that it just looks so scary seeing him on that monitor practically face down!

But hes sleeping awesome! One middle of the night feeding!
