crib issues (kinda funny)

ok.

my daughter was in the hospital for a week with rsv and pnemonia ( bless her heart) and they had her sleeping in a pretty big crib. before the hospital visit she was sleeping in her bassinet which she was really to big for...so when we got home i thought id put her in her crib to see how she does..kinda ween her off her basinet and the closed space.

anyways i dont know how she does it but i will go in there after an hour and she will be completly sideways upsidedown at the bottom of her crib lol.

the only problem is she gets to the crib bumpers and burries her face in them, pretty scary.

im afraid shes going to suffocate one of these times. i always fix her when shes like that which of course wakes her up =/

anyways i was just looking for some tips or ideas on wat to do to help prevent that.

as always u guys are great

i just read this and it sounds like a really stupid question lol. sorry but if you have any input i greatly appreciate it

Take out the crib bumpers on that end of the crib. If she is old enough she will be able move her head if she needs to.

My son used to do that too lol. My pulmonologist said NO BUMPERS OR BLANKETS they r dangerous, and for kids with respiratory issues they are the worst. They have whats called a breathable bumper at places like babies r us or toys r us, it goes around the crib so they cant get their little feet stuck thru the bars but its holey so no breathing issue, Still if she is sensitive in respiratory ways u need to make sure you hand wash it often to get dust off it. Good luck with ur cute little scooter lol.

take out the bumbers. babies don't know about claustophobia so the do that a lot a blanket won't suffocate her but bumbers may.
