    Elyse absolutely loves being in the fetal position or scrunched up as well as she can period lol, and has since birth. So on Friday night we went to my boyfriend's cousin's 1st birthday party.. and I was walking around with her, and she was scrunched up against me.. and his aunts etc were all dropping comments like:

    "That's so creepy it's like she's still in the womb!"
    "SOMEONE'S missing home!"
    "Oh she's going to be such a sucky, clingy girl when she gets bigger."
    "Is she even comfortable like that?"

    I never thought there was anything unusual about it until I got those comments... she's only 6 weeks old, this is okay and normal right!?

    well my LO is only a week and 2 days old... but she still loves lying on mummy in the fetal position... I dont think its a problem at all especially with your little one at only 6 weeks... I may be wrong though.

    LeeAnne still does this, although not as bad as it used to be!! Shes finally stretching her legs out more but it wasnt until about 5weeks that she started that!!
    She probably just loves being on mommy's chest and the 'frog' position is natural for them! When I put LeeAnne in her sling the minute I put her in the burp position she frog styles it up!
