my 4 month old is sleeping face down. Neep advice
A little backstory. My son had colic really bad so we were swaddling him every night in a swaddler. He managed to flip over in his crib with the swaddler so we immediately stopped using it since his hands were bound and he couldn't flip himself back over. Apparently he traded one comfort for another. He insists on sleeping with his face buried into the mattress. I can hear him breathing really heavy through the monitor and that is how I know he is back on his face after I've switched him back onto his back. My husband and I aren't sleeping. I think we are especially panicked since our good friends neighbor's 6 month old suffocated in his crib last week. I know that there are probably different things to try, but there are so many mixed reviews about what to do, what to use, etc. I did take everything out of his crib(bumper, blankets, etc) but I know that there are mixed opinions about whether bumper pads are helpful or harmful. I would imagine that I am probably panicking over nothing, but due to the recent events of that 6 month old, we are just not sleeping because we are so worried. I feel like a first time mom all over again with all of this worrying. Any tips would be great!
