Payne Sleeping

Payne rolls and squirms everywhere when he sleeps. I don't know how to make him stay in between the sleep postioner. Any ideas?
He also likes to sleep on his tummy. Is it bad that I let him do that?

Last night he went to bed at 10 and woke up at 2! Went back down at 2:30 and slept until 5:30!!
But this is how we woke up!

Any advice about getting them to sleep longer?

when i was nursing my lil' one, i would put her down in her bassinet and let her sleep til whenever she woke up, which would vary between 12 and 2, and then {close your eyes} i would bring her into our bed, nurse her while layin' on one side {durin' most nights, we would nurse on both sides} and then we would both calmly drift back off to sleep - the both of us. we would get the best sleep. and sometimes she would sleep til 7, 8, sometimes even 9! she was sleepin' through the night early on, 2-3 months of age, and even then she only got up once, MAYBE twice a night!

Just give it time and he will start sleeping longer. It's still too early to expect him to sleep really long stretches at night. I promise he will turn a corner in a couple of weeks and he will go a lot longer at nights!

You are Ryan are doing great!!!

I was going to say the same thing Jennifer said...still too early. You are getting close and it just happens--hang in there! He is still a cutie-patootie!

(Oh, and I did the bed-nursing too for the first couple of months. You do feel much better rested so if you are just really tired that is a good tip.)

I just stumbled across you blog. First of all, He is precious.

I let two of my three daughters sleep on their tummy's from birth. I know I know...you aren't supposed to. But, I would put them down on their backs and they would flail and scream. It was like they were falling.

So, I moved them to their tummies (as they could hold their heads up on their own pretty much since birth...because they were fatties!). All was right with the world after that!

Back to bed, tummies to play is the rule that I live by...:)
My daughter magically started sleeping throught the night at 9 weeks. I know you are sleep deprived, take it easy and sleep when he does.
