Baby sleeping with butt in air??


Hi, my baby is 8 months old and the last month or so shes been been asleep with her butt in the air and knees tucked in. I flip her over when I check on her on my way to bed but when I check on her in the morning shes gone back like that, is this safe? Im worried about her suffocating!

Perfectly safe and very normal. Sometimes they go into that position if they're cold so I'd just check she has enough layers on. I wouldn't bother turning her over, there's no need and you will disturb her unnecessarily.

For sure it's fine, my oldest used to do this sometimes. We used an Angel Care breathing monitor under her mattress though, so if anything had gone wrong, the alarm would have gone off. That put my mind at ease.

Both of mine have been belly sleepers and they did this quite frequently. I wouldn't turn her over, just let her sleep.

Mine usually only did that when she had a wet diaper. It's not unsafe. By this age, she's perfectly capable of maneuvering. As long as her bedding is age appropriate, she's fine.

My LO does it too. It started around the same age too I think, maybe a bit later. Used to be a back sleeper, then side and then (and still) tummy sleeper with bum up in the air lots of times.

There has even been a few weeks where shed sit up to fall asleep haha I let her sleep and shes always been fine.
