If your child falls asleep?

and is in an semi awkward position do you move them and take the chance of waking them or just leave them where they are?

  • I go in to my 2 yo's room every night and move him into a comfortable position, make sure he's not laying on top of any of his Thomas trains, that he's covered up if it's cool, etc. because I know he'll sleep right through it, or go right back to sleep if he wakes. My 10 month old, I leave alone because she won't go right back if she wakes!

  • I just leave him how he is. I figure, if he fell asleep that way, then he must be comfy.

  • With DD, she sleeps like a rock. i move her. You could hold her up by her feet and shake her upside down and she'd sleep through it (that by the way is just an assumption I have. We've never tried it! )
    With DS, he didn't start sleeping for more than 4 hours at a time until he was 10 months old. After 10 months of no sleep, we have a strict rule in our house with him: if he's in the bed and asleep for the LOVE OF ALL THINGS HOLY don't touch him! Ha!

  • My DD is a pretty sound sleeper so I can move her easily without waking her up. Sometimes I do and sometimes I just leave her be, figuring she'll adjust herself if she's uncomfortable. If she has a leg or arm sticking out of the crib I try to stick it back thru so that she doesn't twist herself and get it caught or something.

  • I move him. I don't want his neck to hurt when he wakes up.

  • If they are in a deep sleep you can move them.

    But I do understand why you would not want to move them if you had a rough day.

    But I would still try to get them in a good position.

  • My kids don't fall asleep very often, but when they do. I usually wake my 6 year old to go to bed because she is getting heavy or if she is totally out I will have my dh move her, but she is to heavy for me too. With my 3 year old I usually wait a little bit until I know she is out and then I have dh move her to her bed or sometimes I do.
