First Milestone!

We found out the first night home from the hospital that Gage does not like to sleep on his back! So we have found that his car seat carrier has been a good friend! We put the carrier in the bassinet and it helped Gage sleep for a few hours at a time. Eventually we found that if we swaddled him and put him in the sleep wedge on his side in the bassinet he would sleep okay too. Well, last Saturday he had fallen asleep on Craig's chest on the couch. Craig decided to put him down on the ottoman on his back and he actually stayed asleep for over an hour that way! We were so excited - maybe this is the beginning of something good?!

Hi Heidi!! Have you tried a "Miracle Blanket"? It is actually a brand, and it has worked "miracles" for our new little guy (3 months old) who also does not like to sleep on his back. Gage is beautiful, and you look like you are blissful being a Mama! Best job in the world...
