Sleeping face down, butt up. Why?

I've got a one year old who has recently taken to sleeping with his butt sticking up in the air. What's this about? I’m not worried, but definitely puzzled.

    I slept like that when I was a kid. Also my son does. Don't know why though. Maybe to see their cute little butt🙂

    My twins have done this since they were under a year and now they're almost two and it's so funny to see them both with their booties in the air.

    My 18m daughter has been doing this the past couple of months! I think it’s cute and normal haha

    I think it’s bc of how they sit in the womb! My little does this too :)

    I used to sleep like this when I was little. One day I just started sleeping on my side but same position haha.

    Maybe he has gas? Lol. Totally normal. My son does it too.

    I remember sleeping like that as a child, just because it was comfortable. It was also just a phase.

    My daughter slept like that for a good year when she was younger. I did try it just to see if it hurt. It's actually relaxing. After a while, she got over it and now sleeps on her side.

    My daughter does the same. I have no idea why but I finally understand what “childs pose” was all about from back when I had time to go to yoga😂🤣

    Umm, freaked me out to no end and I dared not move him due to potential injury: his body was facing left, propped up on his side while his head was completely opposite facing right. Immediately reminded me of The Exorcist. Ultimately he was totally fine, but I honestly freaked out and it actually took my brain a few minutes to understand what I was seeing.
