Mattress sucking


This goes with my post below. A demonstration of J comforting himself by sucking on the ground and/or mattress which then turns in to him sleeping face down. His clear sleeping position of choice regardless of how many times I turn his head so he can, you know, BREATH.

Cara, have you looked into one of these things:

I have no personal experience with them and no idea if he'd still be able to wriggle onto his front.. just want to through that out there tho!

I use one similar, Fuzzypeach and I'm sure we picked a toxic one too. *sigh* at least it's not documented it's toxic. Maybe that explains his odd mattress sucking behavior :)

i love how he is color coordinated with the blanket. look, if they can comfort themselves without you haveing to hold them, I say more power to them. and you too.

my son did the same thing at 6 months..he would not nap during the day if he wasnt face down... and if he was eating while falling asleep he would put his arm over his eyes... It was the wierdest thing.
