My son is a mad man in his sleep, like I have mentioned before he sleeps for an 8+ hour stretch but his is all over the crib.
I keep the crib completely empty, just a sheet and he is in a sleep sac. He is put down on his back but soon rolls over to his side, we have found him on his belly a few times also. He covers every inch of crib all while sleeping.
I'm worried that he's going to hurt himself or fall asleep and not be able to breathe.
I really thought we had lots of time before I had to worry about this kind of stuff.
If he can move himself into the position, he can get out of it. I worry because Jo is the same, even as a bed sharer. She flips and flops and squiggles around. But the doc said if they can manage to move themselves that much, they can just move again if they get their face somewhere with less oxygen. Babies have preservation mechanisms that allow them to know if they aren't getting enough air. It's when they are placed near items that are unsafe that it becomes a problem. An empty crib is not unsafe in any way. You just have a mover and shaker on your hands.
