    Now what?

    Advertisements
    Ok so Nikolai has a sleep positioner. Well this morning I go in to find him all the way on the other side of the crib and laying width ways (instead ofthe length ways I put him) and on his stomach. His sleep positioner was left behind at the far side of the crib. So now what? how can I make him stay on his stomach or should I just not worry?

    you're putting him on his tummy with a positioner? i suggest putting him on his side and making sure the positioner is snug so he can't roll to his tummy.

    No I put him on his back and it is as tight as it can go on him. He pushed out of the positioner and then rolled onto his tummy

    Im pretty sure once they start moving around in bed there isnt much you can do. I put carter to sleep on his back and he usually ends up on his belly or side facing the opposite direction. Do you have a sleep sack for him? Those make me feel more comfortable because before I used those Carter would often end up completely under the cover.

    wow! what a little gymnastic-sleeper! dd is practically in a coma when she sleeps, so i've never had to deal with this. the most she does is kick off her blanket. we stopped using the positioner around 8 weeks. all it ever did for her was make her feel more secure, it wasn't actually keeping her in place

    Nope. Not young enough. My baby was trying to military crawl at 3 months. Once they start moving, get rid of that sleep positioner.

    Yeah sleep positioners are good for newborns, but once they start moving around at all really they get dangerous, I woke up one morning and Alana was about 1 1/2 months old, she was on her tummy, with the sleep positioner ON TOP of her. Lol. Now she rolls all which ways and sleeps however she pleases. Just be careful with blankets and crib bumpers now.
    Sleep sacks are a godsend!
