I hope someone can help us with our sleeping problems. My son was always sleeping on his back, but at around 6 months, he discovered that he can turn around to his belly, and he likes it so much that he's always doing that, with his head up. The problem is he can't sleep in that posture (I tried to gently force his head down to sleep on his belly but he raises it immediately). He can only sleep between me and my wife if we let him no space to turn around - after a 2-3 hour struggling every night. Then if he wakes up in the middle of the night it starts over (and every time he wakes up he wants to breastfeed, sometimes 8-10 times a night!). Things got worse when he learned how to crawl, sometimes he crawls at night with his eyes closed (I think he's half asleep). We can't put him into his own bed, he gets very exhausted and too tired (but still on all fours!), which makes him unstoppably crying (and I'd never let him cry more than a minute, as some books suggest to put him in there and just leave).
What can we do? I'd really really appreciate any opinions because none of the books mentioned anything about this perpetual motion issue. I understand that his bad quality of sleeping is also because we're moving in the bed and it wakes him up, but we technically can't put him out from there.
