DS is 8 months old.. He's recently learned to rock on his hands and knees.. He is now insisting on sleeping on his stomach and sonetimes his side.. I am aware of SIDS risk etc and have persisted with putting him on his back but he keeps rolling in his sleep or just prior to falling asleep.
It scares me! I have to keep doing in to check him and often have had watch that he is breathing. He knows how to turn his head to the side and sleeps on his cheek and has the ability to bear weight on his arms and push himself up.
An I overreacting for being so scared.. Overly anxious perhaps? I know people do this because of reflux etc and others have experienced it and allowed it but I can't fight the feeling that something may happen.
It's all I've ever been taught and while I'm aware babies used to sleep on their tummies, they changed the recommendations for a reason. The only people I am around often enough to ask are often older and past child bearing years so it was the norm for them.
