Tummy Time

sigh..... ladies and gentleman we have figured out the sleeping issue, drum roll please....... Davis is a tummy sleeper. insert frustration here. As most of you with children hopefully know babies can't sleep on there stomach's until they have head control, which at 5 weeks Davis does not. He took an hour nap earlier on his stomach(under my watchful eye) and as I type he is asleep tummy down next to me on the couch. Last night while I cooked AND ate dinner he slept in his moses basket, so very very nice. Unfortunately he can only take naps like this where I can check on him, so until he gets good head control, 3 to 4 months, we will keep trying things at night but I have to say I have a feeling that he will be with me until I can put him on his tummy. I'm hoping that taking naps during the day not on me will help with him getting used to his bassinet. Wish us luck!

  1. Both of my children were tummy sleepers from the time that I brought them home from the hospital. There was never an issue because even though they can not hold their heads up, they can still turn their heads. I just made sure that no blankets were near their faces.
