    two week appointment and ?

    Advertisements
    So Nikolai had his two week appointment today. It went great. He is now 8lbs 15oz. He is such a big boy He has really calmed down. We have stopped trying to make him sleep in his crib and we have him sleep in his car seat in our room. Now with that little change he is sleeping 5 hours at a time at night.

    Does anyone know of an item that I can put in his crib that will help him sleep there? One that will position him like he is in a car seat.

    Idk about something that will help him sleep like he's in the carseat, but if it's reflux that's an issue, you can get a wedge to go under him so he'll sleep at an angle.

    Its not reflux. He just HATES lying on his back. Even when we lay him on the couch or put him in his swing he rolls to his side. But in the crib its just too flat, he cant roll. And If I start him on his side he rolls to his stomach and starts screaming again.

    i was gonna suggest the boppy too. just swaddle him and use the boppy in the crib. it worked wonders for both my kids until they got used to teh crib.

    Doesnt it say on the boppy not to use for sleeping though? Maybe try elevating the mattress a little and see if that helps

    Adrian sleeps on his boppy on our bed with us. He hates lying flat! He just wont do it. So we have to put him in his boppy in between us at bedtime because he needs his paci at night too, and if he is in his crib if he drops his paci we dont want to have to get up all night to help put it back in. So we keep him with us. But I would watch the boppy when he is in his crib because sometimes they sink in and that can be very dangerous.

    It does say not to use the Boppy for sleeping. SIDS risk. On another message board I'm on, a lady lost one of her twins from sleeping on a Boppy. I would try to put something under the mattress, like a small wedge. I was also told to not let DD sleep in her car seat because of head slumping (something about obstructing the airway), so I would try to find another way he will sleep. Good luck and I hope you get some sleep soon!
