Stomach, Side, Back
Which are you? I'm a back sleeper myself. Always have been except later during pregnancy which I began sleeping on my side with a big body pillow in between my legs. I was always uncomfortable during the end of my pregnancy's but found comfort with the pillow and then wrapping my arms around one end of the pillow. But, I'm back to back sleeping unless I can't sleep and then I toss and turn and end up on my side trying to get another 15 minutes of sleep.
Eric will sleep on any side. Early in our marriage he was primarily a stomach sleeper but seems to be sleeping more and more on his back. He also ends up on his side when he isn't sleeping well.
I always wondered how the kids would be compared to our sleeping. As soon as Etta could roll over she was sleeping on her stomach. I remember reading in parenting books saying don't go in and turn your kids back to their backs if they are crying or they'll never learn to fall asleep on their tummies or roll themselves back. I never had that problem. She'd roll onto her tummy and fall asleep. Etta was always an easy child.
Then their is Chloe. She has been rolling over for months, but just started rolling in her crib recently. Wow, she screams bloody murder and I'm guilty of going in and turning her back. She hates her stomach. It hasn't been until recently that she's been able to fall asleep on her stomach. I still think she prefers her back but is sometimes too tired to care.
Etta is so much like her daddy in so many ways...like sleeping. And then their is Chloe, sleeps like her mommy. It's the little differences in our kids that keep us smiling. They're just too darn cute. How do you like to sleep? Do you seen that in your kids?
