Joshua definitely prefers to sleep on his tummy and I have been letting him. He sleeps in the bassinet part of a pack n play pushed up to my bed so he is right there for me. I'm still freaked out about SIDS. I've been doing some reading and they think cosleeping also is a SIDS risk factor due to bad air circulation. The thing is, this wouldn't stop me from cosleeping if I wanted to, and I wouldn't be freaked out by it at all. So why do I get so nervous about tummy sleeping?
Anyway, one of the tummy theories has to do with off-gassing from the mattress. There aren't many options for organic pack n play mattresses and I don't like the ones I have seen. I was thinks that maybe I could make my own "mattress" with a thin piece of wood wrapped in some blankets to make it soft but firm, and put a waterproof cover over that, followed of course by a sheet. Any opinions on that? Something I might be missing that screams "bad idea!!!"?
Otherwise I could buy a mattress wrap and just do that I guess.
