To start at the beginning of this thought I have to tell a little story. When I was visiting Amber and her girls we were at the park and Corrine was tired so she turned her over onto her belly to sleep. I’m sure Amber heard, if not saw, the horror in my eyes as I asked why she put Corrine on her belly to sleep, though I tried to not sound judgemental, since it has an infant has a higher chance of SIDS when sleeping on their belly. According to my doctor a chance that is seventeen times greater then the infant is sleeping on their back. Anyways, she answered that it helps Corrine sleep better because of her gas problems. Now I am sympathizing with Amber, but at the same time worried about the increase risk for SIDS. Though my problem is just that Eden rolls to her belly and can’t get back to her back, and she just falls asleep there. She’s young, but already she pushes up to her arms and holds her head up really well. I just don’t know if I should go and roll her to her back after she falls asleep, like my pediatrician advised, because she sleeps better on her belly and longer. That’s just my mother dilemma. I realize that my life only has school and kids, and I constantly talk about my kids, but I guess it’s because that’s what I do. I just wish I had more indpeth problems, but that would lead to more worries and who wants those.
