I'm a HORRIBLE Mother

My Baby Sleeping on His Tummy

I let my baby sleep on his tummy.

*gasp*

Horrible. I told you. Here’s the thing, I’m guessing you may be a horrible mother too.

Do you lay a blanket over your baby at night?

Does your crib have a bumper?

You don’t dare ever co-sleep, do you?

All of these things are found in the NICHD’s recommendations for Safe Sleep.

There’s a big keyword there that everyone seems to ignore, RECOMMENDATION.

I’m tired of feeling like a bad mother becuase my instinct is to lay the baby down on his tummy. He’s more comfortable on his tummy. He spits up less on his tummy. He sleeps longer on his tummy. Why wouldn’t I let him sleep that way?

Being a parent is hard. We constantly get bombarded with information, opinions, and recommendations. Everything from breastfeeding to sleeping to carrier choices are up for debate.

I’m so tired of it. Aren’t you?
