We've always had our babies sleep on their backs, because of that "Back to Sleep" campaign out there to prevent SIDS deaths. Our 3rd child actually, literally, never took naps, except during nursing. I think she might have, had I given in to the "no tummy sleeping" rule. Sweetie Pie is just like her. BUT, I've given in to the rule, she does sleep good on her tummy. I pray to all the angels to protect her while she is sleeping. When on her tummy, she actually sleeps long, like sometimes 3 hours!!! Do you know how much a mama can get done in 3 hours? (alot) Do you know how much a mama can get done when there is no nap? (not much)
What do you do? I feel so guilty when I let her sleep on her tummy. I check often. I check for blue lips and breathing movement constantly.
Are some babies just tummy sleepers and other not? Is it ok to let them sleep on their tummies? Dear Lord, bless our sweet babies when they sleep, keep them safe. Thank You for the gift of their beautiful little souls, help us to take good care of them.
