Breaking the rules.......
So Mr. Blake likes to get up in the middle of the night, often and stay up for at least an hour usually.
Well last night he got up at 2:30 and had 2 ozs of formula and immediately fell back to sleep laying on me. So I laid him down in his crib and he wakes up.....looking at me like "umm this isn't what I want" and he'd start fussing. So I'd pick him up get to him drowsy again, then lay him back down again. Then he'd wake up and start fussing. This happened like 4 or 5 times. I knew he wasn't being fussy to just be a brat. So I did what you're told not to do..........I laid him on his stomach to sleep. It is his preferred way to sleep, it's how he naps during the day. So I broke the SIDS rule....and slept on the floor in the nursery. Haha.
Blake ended up sleeping almost an hour longer than he normally does in the morning and woke up the happiest little guy ever.
So my dilemma is.......do I keep breaking that rule when he wakes up in the middle of the night? I honestly think SIDS is just in your baby, like if it's going to happen it will happen, it's not because of blankets or stuffed animals. What would you do?
