This past week the only way he will sleep is either laying on his tummy or next to/on me. I don't like it when he lays on his tummy because it is harder for me to hear him when he fusses and it is harder for him to breathe also. If he were able to successfully roll back onto his back when he tried i wouldn't have a problem with it. So during the day i try to give him his naps while on his back, but he rolls. (and i usually let him stay rolled on his tummy since i am completely alert anyway) I also try to strap him into his swing to sleep. The swing works, plus he stays asleep longer, but he gets used to it and won't sleep without it.
He also has decided that taking a nap at eight and being up until 11 or midnight ish is good. I do not agree!Hubby has to be up and out the door before seven currently so i have to keep Rock quiet so he can have adequate sleep. So in trying to keep Rock quiet and get some rest myself i resorted to letting him sleep on my chest. I realized that this wouldn't work for long and tried to fall back on swaddling again. (swaddling an almost 20 lb baby is amusing) Rock hadn't been swaddled since he was a month old (or less). He hated being swaddled and would squirm until he freed himself. Now he thinks it is a game. We got a new swaddle blanket just the other day so i tried it out... it is huge:
