Is this normal?

This is a little weird lol. Ok, my daughter is 8 months old. Lately she's been sleeping with her face like burried in her playpen and her butt sticking up in the air lol. It's really funny looking, but I worry that she's going to like suffocate or something. Is this normal? My husband says it is (his sister has 4 young kids that he was around a lot when they were babies), but I still worry.

  • Lol thanks ladies. I almost woke her up the other night when I saw her like that for the first time because I started laughing so hard. It just caught me off guard. Then I started worrying after the humor started to wear off lol.

  • My DD tries to do this and she's only 3 mos. It scares the crap out of me. I don't let her, I flip her to her back.
