My DS3 is four and a half months old. I put him down to sleep on his back, but he keeps rolling onto his front to sleep. Should I keep on turning him over or is this OK?

hercules Fri 01-Jul-05 22:11:33

If he is turning himself then it is fine.
My dd always hated sleeping on her back and would only sleep on her side anyway.

Hi Bubble!

As he can get onto his front (can he roll back? If he can't, I don't think it matters), I would say he's strong enough for it not to be a problem. Can he lift his head up well?

bubble99 Fri 01-Jul-05 22:26:14

Wotcha you two Yep. He's lifting his head well. Even though he's my DS3 he feels like a first baby because of the 5 year gap between him and DS2. I was as anxious as this with DS1. With DS2 it was all so fresh I remembered what to do, but poor Elijah's getting the full on 'OMG. I think he may have swallowed a bit of dust. We have to go to A&E now' treatment.

hunkermunker Fri 01-Jul-05 22:27:27

Totally understandable, Bubble! Where better to ask than MN too

QueenEagle Fri 01-Jul-05 22:27:53

Hiya bubble - how are ya doing

If he can roll by himself then he will be fine.

My ds4 is 6 months old now and has missed out the rolling over bit completely. Sitting up though.

buble one of things i got was these duck things from vertbaudet that stopped ds rolling over i have been told u can do similair with 2 rolled p sheets either side of baby

bubble99 Fri 01-Jul-05 22:36:40

Doin' OK thanks QE Busy with the businesses (Pleased I didn't have to say that )Busy with The Footle (Elijah, so named as he makes little 'footling' noises when he's looking for a boob) and the rest of my men, Mr Bubble, DS1 and DS2.

I've got a meeting with Susan Kramer next week to discuss Bo's death. I've got to bite the bullet and go ahead with this, though it won't be easy. I can see why so many people walk away from things like this.

bubble99 Fri 01-Jul-05 22:39:27

Thanks Nemo. You've been subjected to a bit of verbal abuse tonight haven't you?

marthamoo Fri 01-Jul-05 22:39:49

Agree with everyone else, bubble - once they can roll over by themselves it's OK. I's understandable that you're extra cautious/paranoid/uncertain.

Can't believe Elijah is four and a half months already!

marthamoo Fri 01-Jul-05 22:40:18

That was supposed to be It's not I's!

hunkermunker Fri 01-Jul-05 22:41:18

Bubble, you're an inspiration - if you need a shoulder (or a hairy foot), let me know.

QueenEagle Fri 01-Jul-05 22:42:16

Ah, I have oft a-wondered how the Footle was so named! Now I know!

Well, bubble, you sound like one helluva strong and gutsy lady; I've followed your threads over the past few months. These professionals hope that people in your situation do walk away from meetings like that then they don't have to answer any questions that put them in a tight spot. Just remember that underneath the business suit, they are probably quaking in their boots at meeting you and having to answer some very difficult questions.

I often think of you and I wish you all the best for the meeting.

Nemo1977 Fri 01-Jul-05 22:42:42

hell i can take it bubble..pmsl I got a bump to protect me.

bubble99 Fri 01-Jul-05 22:50:44

Good for you and your bump Nemo! And lucky you. And speaking of bumps. How's our Hunker. I trust the next scan will show the new 'Not a Natural Sandal Wearer' in his/her full glory

QE. The Footle has developed a new sound. When angry/tired/hungry he says 'Ning ning ning!'

bubble99 Fri 01-Jul-05 22:52:24

And Moo. He loves your 'special' song.

hunkermunker Fri 01-Jul-05 22:56:42

Bubble! We used to call DS Ning-ning! He did just that!!

Bump's OK - have felt less sick today (but still a bit) so am obviously v worried about everything at a subconscious level! Scan next Friday - cannot cannot cannot wait! Had already had three scans with DS by this stage last time - doesn't feel real yet. Getting bigger though - by the evening I'm huge

QueenEagle Fri 01-Jul-05 22:58:31

Hunkermunker - I meant to say to you the other day - CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! How far are you?

Sorry for hijacking bubble!

QueenEagle Fri 01-Jul-05 22:59:10

Bubble - are you feeling a bit better about the rolling over now?

hunkermunker Fri 01-Jul-05 22:59:37

Thank you QE! I'm 12 weeks tomorrow (by dates) but probably a bit less because I'm a weirdo cycle-wise (Yeah, yeah, Bubble, not just cycle-wise, I know )

misdee Fri 01-Jul-05 22:59:51

love the name footle.

dd3 is becoming very nosey, if she sees/hear anyone when i'm feeding her, she pops off the boobs for a nosey around, she is making discreet feeding hard lol.

Nemo1977 Fri 01-Jul-05 23:02:23

aww bubble dont be envious of bump u will have one again...have seen u perusing the ttc

bubble99 Fri 01-Jul-05 23:26:36

Definately QE. I've just been to check him again ahd he is lying on his front with his thumb stuck in his mouth. This is a novelty for us as neither of his brothers showed the slightest interest in theirs. He's a lovely little lad, even with the 3am 'ning,ning,ning's! It must be universal baby language HM

misdee. I can picture the scene. You with a boob on display and your DS3 saying 'Whassup?'

Nemo. I intend to be waddling along behind you and Munker asap. Just need to stay awake and interested enough for Mr Bubble to provide his contribution.

bubble99 Fri 01-Jul-05 23:28:31

Sorry Nemo, DD3. I've been immersed in the boy thing for too long.

hunkermunker Fri 01-Jul-05 23:29:58

Next verbal step for DS was "boom-boom" Bubble - was hilarious (even in the middle of the night when he didn't want to go back to sleep and lay next to me going "boom-boom-boom-boom-boom"!)!!
