Belly Flop

Guess who can roll over from his back to his tummy now? On a regular basis?

Now guess who can roll over from his back to his tummy AT NIGHT? IN HIS CRIB?

Oh yeah….no joke.

Apparently Max didn’t get the memo about how babies are supposed to sleep on their backs. He didn’t read the article at Parents.com about the Back To Sleep campaign.

There’s nothing like walking into your baby’s room and finding him face down in bed, his little butt sticking up in the air. Or waking up at 2 am to the sound of his tiny little sleepy cries, as he does an unnecessary round of tummy time push-ups with his EYES CLOSED.

Guess how many times mom and dad stood there and rolled him on to his back, only to have him immediately spring back to his tummy. ENDLESS times. At 4 am. And how many times did we try to tilt his little face to the side so that his nose wasn’t squashed into the sheet as he lay flat on his face? ENDLESS times.

So we talked to the Pediatrician, and two teachers at DayOne, and a few other moms….and the general consensus was that if Max was strong enough to get himself into these predicaments, then he was strong enough to get himself enough air. Hmmmmm…..of course I’m still worried…..but there was something pretty funny about walking in and seeing THIS little butt in the air last night…..
