Infant Care (up to 18 months old) Board Index

I am having the same problem. My 1 month old absolutely hates sleeping on her back. I allow her to sleep on her belly during the day in her pack-n-play but at night I am scared to do it. I constantly check on her in the pack-n-play. On her belly, she will sleep 4-5 hours at a time. My pediatrician told us not to let her sleep on her belly at all. I had a big baby and she has been able to pick her head up and turn it side to side on her belly from the time she was born. I have hospital pictures to prove it! I don't really understand what they think causes SIDS but I know that my little one can move her head in any way she wants. But, to be cautious, I am still leery of doing it at night. At night, I can't get her to sleep before 11 or 12, but she wakes up at 3 am like clock work. I am usually up with her for 1 and 1/2 to 2 hours after she eats at 3 am. It's like it's noon to her. I keep the lights down while fixing the bottle and turn them off when she is feeding. I always open the blinds and turn lights on around 8 am. I don't know if any of it helps (or will help). Also she is sleeping in our room in a bassinet too. Hoping to move her soon. It's so much easier to reach over and find her lost pacifier than to go to another room to do it 5 times in a row though!

I will be going back to work in a couple of weeks and I really don't know how I am going to do it. Most days I am lucky to get a shower. What do you guys do? I have taken her in the bathroom with me in her vibrating seat before, but she screamed the whole time. My dh works shift work and goes out of town a lot, so it's not always possible for him to watch her while I wash my hair! Any tips would be appreciated.

Also, we just switched her to soy formula. She was having solid bowel movements.....actually she still is. When taking a bottle she screams and passes gas. I bought Mylicon Drops yesterday and gave them to her in her bottle last night. The doc told us to wait a week to see if her poop becomes more pastey and normal. I feel so bad for her. I hope the gas pains go away soon.

Well she's awake.......better run!
