Stomach Sleeper

Sandy has started sleeping on her stomach. It took us awhile to figure out what she was trying to do. She'd wake up crying and I'd go in and find her on her stomach. I thought she was crying because she was on her stomach. I knew she could flip herself if she wanted to but thought she was just too tired to do it. So I'd flip her back on to her back and stick her binkie back in her mouth. This happened several times before we finally figured out what was going on. She'd flip herself onto her stomach because apparently she now likes sleeping on her stomach. But in the process she'd lose her binkie and that is what was waking her up. So, she's getting better at keeping her binkie in her mouth as she rolls and Bill and I are getting really good at searching for it in the dark and getting it back into her mouth while leaving her on her stomach.

Aaron and Joseph both were stomach sleepers too! One thing that we did was to keep a binky on the dresser next to the crib so there was always one handy and we didn't have to go searching.
