A sling or a wrap--that would knock either of my kids out (more predictably than nursing, actually). If that isn't an option, swaddle and rock maybe?

'Back to Sleep' may be the mantra but it hasn't worked for any of my kids. With Keagan, he'll only sleep on his back if he happened to fall asleep on the pillo while nursing and I transfer him, pillow and all, to sleep for a bit right beside me as I am on the computer. At the moment he's sound asleep in his sling nursing... When the stars align just right, we can get him to nap independently for about an hour- only if he's put down on his tummy.

I keep trying it, but the only time it works is in bed with me. In the crib, he wakes up from the jostling of getting him onto his belly. Between reflux and gas, he's definitely more comfy on his belly!

I've found that if I take him off my breast and put him on my shoulder in a burping position, it's easier to transfer him to his tummy in bed that way. If I try to take him from a nursing position to laying on his tummy, he's more likely to wake up. Maybe try burping first.
