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.
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.
