Oh, what to do?
I am having a little trouble with the girls plastering themselves to the sides of the crib. No matter how I lay them down to sleep, and then readjust them appropriately before I go to bed, they continue to scoot themselves up the mattress like little caterpillars. At 3am Leah (more often than not) has made her way to the top of the crib and gotten her head right against the slats. We bought those breathable bumpers so now they can't put their limbs through, but they still wake up when they touch the sides. We have debated about buying the big fluffy bumpers, but to be honest, all the SIDS stuff still scares me. (Not that I think anything would happen, but if it did how could I forgive myself when I have been warned so incessantly?) Plus they would still get right up next to it and I think that would tick them off just the same. So as it stands right now, I go in their room 2-3 times a night to move them down in the crib and they somehow manage to scoot back up. I try to get to them before they really wake up, and for the most part I am successful. It's still aggravating though. Any advice?
