Sleeping positions

Gianni has all of sudden started sleeping on his belly and it freaks me out! He can roll over but only when he is fully awake. I don't like leaving him in his crib but I have to. He sleeps with a crib wedge but still... Any one else have this going on?

Carter is a wild child when he sleeps! I put him in his crib on his back and in the morning he is usually on his belly facing the complete opposite direction.

I worry when they are tiny, but i admit i have let my babies sleep on their tums even as nbs. I dont sleep well, but baby seemed happy. Q has been crawling and rolling for sometime so i dont worry anymre. All mine have been night crawlers and practice all milestones at night, so i had to get used to it lol.
It is easier said than done. Try to take comfort in the fact that it has only been twenty yrs or so since back to sleep started before it was recommended to have babies sleep on their stomachs.

I don't get too concerned. I find Emer in EVERY possible position when he wakes up from naps, and sometimes I have seen him go to sleep on his belly. My DD was a back sleeper, and my DS1 loved his belly. He slept better that way. Emer does both, so far.

He has his periods when he wants to sleep on his back and when he wants to sleep on his belly. But he mostly sleeps on his side all artched and crazy! Lol it's hard to described. It's really cute though. But yes, lately he has been all over his crib I decided to lower it and ever since I did he has been sleeping longer. It's amazing!

YAY for a baby who sleeps in his crib. I am jealous. The crib = raging freak out here. Sigh.

Aww, he starts off sleeping in his crib and ends up in my bed bc I'm too tired. It's just easier to plop him in the bed in the middle of the night. But he now that he rolls a lot in his sleep I think those days are about to end.
