This Beautiful Inheritance: Side Sleeping is for the Birds!

Side Sleeping is for the Birds!

If you read my facebook status today, then you already know. But after my dreadful night with Eden night before last and my lamenting yesterday, I had a talk with one of my friends via facebook. Her little boy is the same age as Eden and she said she puts him to sleep on his tummy and he sleeps a lot better.

If you've had a baby in the last few years, you know that "they" say do NOT put babies on their tummies. (Even though all our parents did it) So I have tried for Eden's 3 1/2 months of life to make her sleep on her side. I figured it was a compromise between her back (which she hates) and her tummy. I had tried putting her on her tummy a couple times before a couple months ago, but it didn't seem to make that much difference. But after my long night with her and my conversation with my friend, I decided to give it another try.

And yes, you read right on FB, she slept EIGHT hours that way! That's a record for Miss Eden, folks.

    Kelcie, I'm right there with you, Sloan sleeps so much better on her tummy. Lately she hasn't been sleeping very well due to her recent ear infection and RSV. I'm bad though because after getting up three times in the middle of the night, i just give up and put her in bed with me. I hope i don't pay for that in the long run. Good luck and enjoy because it does get better.
