this rolling over thing is not helping our sleep...

So last week Jakson officially learned how to roll from back to belly. He is actually doing that a lot more than belly to back. He puts his hands at his side when he is trying to roll onto his back and he gets stuck on his hands. Oh well, he will learn soon that those hands have to be moved out of the way.

So he has started sleeping on his side. I haven't taken a picture but I will have to...he is just perfectly on his side and basically balancing himself with his hands and feet. It is cute...until he rolls onto his belly by accident. YIKES. He just screams and screams. I had Josh go in there the first time he did it to see if he could just roll him back over without having to smell me in there..that didn't work. Poor Josh was trying to rock Jakson but he just wouldn't calm down, so I had to go in there and nurse him to get him to calm down.

So last night I decided we would put him in his positioner and hopefully that would keep him from rolling over-- only problem is, he didn't like the positioner. It would mess him up while he tried to roll onto his side and he screamed until we helped out. So it took about 3 attempts to put him to bed last night :/ I'm not really liking this...

I woke up at 5 this morning and looked at the moniter and he was on his belly!! At first his face was kind of shoved in the mattress. He quickly learned to turn his head...I was so excited that he finally realized that he can sleep like that. But of course, about an hour later he was screaming again. So now he is sleeping next to me and I can't fall back asleep. Time to go and make some coffee :)

Hopefully he will figure out this flipping over in the middle of the night thing soon...I had gotten too used to sleeping through the night again!!

Girl, I was going to call you at work! We are having this same issue! Mason has slept in a postioner since birth and now he rolls out of it. Problem is, he gets mad. Then we lay him just in the crib, and it is even worse! What are we going to do?!

Naomi would cry and cry when she flipped herself over, too. But she got over it and it didn't take that long...just felt like an eternity while she was figuring it out! Now she prefers to be on her belly to sleep. Hang in there. He'll figure it out!
