I Give Up

Right, so Dovid sleeping on his stomach wasn't a fluke... Last night I went to check on them before I went to sleep and there he was on his tummy again. So I flipped him. No sooner were my hands gone, but he flipped right back. Mind you he was still mostly asleep. lol So I flipped him again....and he flipped back. I did this three times before saying. "Ok, Kiddo. You win. Sleep on your back, but I'm at least going to move you to the center of the crib." (Because he was flipping himself all the way to the side.) Hehe what a cutie.

Chana has no desire to flip at all. She doesn't even try when she's on her back or her front to get the other way. *sigh* Well, some babies just don't roll over and just go straight to walking. lol Actually, when we had them on tummy time during Shabbos Dovid was scootching all over the place. He would bring his knees up to his chest and then scootch, like an inchworm. He was going pretty fast for someone his age, too. Chana was also trying to scootch, but not as much. They're so far advanced.

It's so amazing how babies move at their own pace - they seem to just do things when they're ready.

I asked my dad about the stomach sleeping and he said that he would put me on my back to sleep and I'd scream like crazy but if I was on my tummy I slept all night. That started around 3 or 4 weeks old, of course, that was before all the SIDs education we get now.

Elana - Kira has also been flipping onto her belly in the night. I too attempted numerous times to put her back on her back..but would awake each morning with her on her belly.

I gave up. She is always sleeping with her head turned to the side, so i figure it was futile to try...
