Side Sleeping w/ Shh-Pat
« on: April 02, 2020, 20:06:36 pm »
I have been doing S/P w/ my 14 week old little boy for the last 1.5 weeks, and I do think we're making good progress, but I'm having a problem with the position of the S/P... Like the BW says in her book, doing the S/P on the baby's side is generally more effective, and I tend to agree. BUT after I finally leave the room, if my LO is still on his side and he rolls to his back (once he is asleep), it wakes him up and he gets hysterical. Maybe the rolling makes him feel like he is falling...? Anyway, I'm not sure how to transition him to his back, and patting him on his front seems to disrupt him more than anything else... And I don't feel comfortable wedging towels or blankets up against him, since he is still in a swaddle and may get into a dangerous position. I'd love ANY suggestions if you have them!!!
