Ladies, I need your help!
My son is 19 weeks old and just last week or so he started trying to roll over. He goes from his back to about 3/4 over. He can't seem to get his right arm out from under his body.
The problem is, he's started sleeping like this. I lay him down on his back in his crib and he immediately rolls over to his right side. His arm is stretched out beneath him (which looks like it may be uncomfortable for his shoulder) and his head to the side and tilted back. I try to reposition him so he's not like that all night, but he immediately goes back to that same position. He stays like this all night. I am not sure if he is able to right himself on his own, but every morning now, he wakes up screaming in pain from what I can only imagine is a stiff neck and a sore shoulder. His arm is slightly discolored from sleeping on it, and the right side of his face is puffy from sleeping on it all night.
After a few minutes massaging his shoulder and neck area, he seems fine, but his face remains puffy for a couple of hours and I'm concerned that sleeping and napping like this every day will cause lasting damage to his posture or mobility.
Any advice or anyone who can relate? I don't know what to do!
