Our son Ollie from the time he was brought home from the hospital until now (10 weeks) has been sleeping with us in our bed. I would like to start putting him to sleep in his own room in his crib. The problem I have is that no matter what he will not sleep on his back. the moment his back touches anything be it the floor, the couch, or the mattress in his crib he starts to scream. I was just wondering if you ladies had any advice about how to get him use to it. And if the back situation doesn't pan out he doesn't mind sleeping on his side (I know I know, tummy and side to sleep are not recommended but it's the only way he'll sleep). Any advice on the subject would really help. Thanks. Jen

thanks every one. I feel a lot better about this. I have just been getting a lot of grief from my mother-in-law about this and a lot of other things as well (i.e. "in MY day I use to let my children blah blah blah" or "When I was raising MY kids I would never let them blah blah blah"). I think that we are going to try tummy sleep for a week in his our bed. If it works out great, if not at least we tried. I know she means well but it is making me a little crazy.
Thanks again every one.
