Tummy sleeper

When Elliott was 3 months old he went to the Pediatrician for his normally scheduled appointment. She said to keep a keen eye on him as he was going to roll over any day now.

Well, 5.5 months later our boy has finally rolled over. Which is perfect timing, since he wont sleep (at all really) in any position other than his stomach.

This of course has caused me a terrible amount of stress and anxiety. I have visited the SIDS website no less than 5 times, each time looking for some new bit of information that will justify letting my boy sleep on his tummy.

Alas, my own need to sleep has bested me, and last night we put him to sleep in his tummy. He slept for 4 hours straight. Which, these days, folks is a record.
