My 7 month old DD just learned how to turn from back to front a few days ago. I am not sure if she is excited about her new skill, but on the same night she woke up at 2am and turned on her tummy in bed. (She sleeps in bed with me.) I turned her back on her back, but then she did it again. So I just stayed awake with her and let her play. She didn't go to sleep for another 1.5 hours.
Then the next night she did the same thing at the same time. So I am just freaking out at the moment. I really hope this is just a phase and she is not going to wake up every night and stay awake for an hour or so. Please someone tell me, that they've been through this.
Also I put her to sleep on her back tonight, and an hour later I saw her sleeping on her side for the first time ever. Now I am worried that she will turn on her stomach and fall asleep in this way. Is it more safe for her to sleep on her stomach now that she is 7 months old or should I keep an eye on her? Or I was thinking of getting a sleep positioner. But I'm not sure if it's really necessary.
I would really appreciate some advice. I am actually worried right now.
