Roll on your stomach baby!

March 27, 2012 - 3 months and 2 days old Kaela


Woke up by my Mom's high-pitched scream. It was because Kaela rolled on her stomach - Kaela's first ever "dapa." We were somehow amazed and amused by this because they say that babies roll on their stomachs when they are around 6 months old. Many people told me that Kaela was so great that she was like an "advanced" child.




But when I read the book "Pregnancy & Childcare" by Jenny King, it was stated under the two months old category that "...he can roll on his stomach as if starting to crawl." So, it was really normal for two month old babies to roll  on their stomachs. Kaela can roll on her stomach easily, anytime, anywhere. She can also balance her head well while in this position though sometimes she also gets tired and will start crying.

Recently, Kaela rolls on her stomach while sleeping. I found it funny the first time I saw her did that. It was like she was exhausted. Just today, I've searched through the internet about this rolling of babies on their stomachs/tummies while sleeping and I've read that many are worried about this! Didn't care about this until now. Some babies may not be able to breathe properly in this position because they "bury" their faces on the mattress. This is really worrisome. Good thing Kaela turns her head to the side.  I'm hoping that Kaela would always turn her head to the side if ever she is going to sleep in this kind of position again.

Stripping off,
Nalie
