Maggie prefers to sleep tilted upright. She will sleep for hours on her boppy during the day. I sleep slightly tilted when she sleeps on my chest, and she was always tilted at the hospital when we were there.
So now my question is, how I do tilt her in the crib? I'm assuming it's not safe to let her sleep in the boppy at night (any thoughts on that?) so I'd like to find a way to tilt her in the crib, it might help her sleep in there.
I don't have a problem with putting her on the boppy and going with that, but I have a feeling that it's a big no-no.
technically, sleeping in the boppy at all is a no no, even for naps. I let Truett sleep in it sometimes but only when Im right there, usually pumping. While in the hospital, they had him tilted up like that too. Ive wondered about doing it at home, but he seems to be adjusting just fine. So... sorry, I have no tips.
Thank you *Kiliki* for my awesome siggy!
I am peace, full of unconditional love. I am confident and in tune with the Divine, receptive to guidance.
The pediatrician recommended it to help with Samantha's reflux.
Since I havent been able to find a wedge (havent been to the store) I just have a couple books under the mattress at one end for the time being.
It works good. But she wiggles so much that while she sleeps she slides down some.

I would prop something under her mattress to tilt it up. You can always roll a receiving blanket under her butt to help keep her from sliding down the wedge. I had to do that with DD1 but so far DS doesn't need propped up.
i have the twins beds probed up with folded blankets to keep them sitting upright. the dr also said when their noses were stopped up to put them in a swing/bouncy seat/car seat or anything they could be buckeled into to prevernt falling. but i would just get the wedge or put something under the bed
