i know the advice is to sleep on their backs but is it really dangerous for babies to sleep on their side sometimes? DD is 7 weeks and at night after feeding, she drops off and sometimes, i am too dozy to roll her ono her back. she also sleeps on her side sometimes during the day, when we are at home tofther. she has reflux and seems more comfortable. also, when she vomits, it's less likely to choke her and come through her nose.
i let dd sleep on her side during the day when I'm awake and nearby are you co sleeping? don't think it's bad then (and as you say it's inevitable sometimes!!) but I don't know for sure. Same here though, so I'll watch with interest
4 1/2 solid sleep? Or altogether I had a really good night last night too - DD was up at 2 for a nappy change and a quick feed and then 5ish I think for a feed and then DS woke me at 6.30ish - both had been asleep since 8pm!!
When co-sleeping babies often sleep on their sides as that is how you both fall asleep while feeding. You know the SIDS guidelines and the rate of SIDS has dropped a lot since the guidelines came in but there are other factors (smoking for example) and just because your baby isn't sleeping on their back doesn't mean they will automatically die.
To be honest nobody can tell you what to do, you can only look at the guidelines and the risks and make your own choices based on the information you have.
Dd slept on her front, still does. I tried and tried to get her to sleep on her back but she wouldn't (and I mean really, seriously wouldn't) so I gave up and let her sleep on her front. I decided that since she was low risk in pretty much every other way I was happy with that.
Oh bless Ds keeps trying ot get dd's clothes too, anything that isn't obviously pink and girly he thinks might belong to him He has a point though, most things non pink and girly used to belong to him.
she's just woken up and is having her...foursies! yes, she sleeps most of the day, but i promise I've been busy in between MNing - come & inspect if you like (off out in half an hour tho!) Not tried them on her yet, as I have to admit I don't 'dress' her, just change her vest & sleepsuit when she wees or poos on them (or every day if it goes that long)! Thinking that might have to change or she'll never wear any of the clothes
yesterday for example: wake up nappy change feed nappy change new nappy as pooed while changing it quick shower (me) nappy change new nappy as weed on new one T nappy change mum arrives, cuddles A "does she need a nappy change?" etc...until sleep time
