My 6 month old baby fell asleep on his belly should I put him on his back or let him sleep that way?
Is it ok that my 4month old keeps turning to his side or belly when I put him down to sleep. The fear of SIDS concerns me?
Low risk: At this age, if he is developed enough to roll over, the risk is very low for SIDS, and neither of you will get rest if you keep turning him over. Other factors are important to avoid SIDS as well, such as a firm, smooth mattress, avoiding toys, pillows and blankets that could smother him, and avoiding all secondary smoke exposure and co-sleeping. He'll do well with a concerned parent like you. ...Read more

My 5m2w baby is put to sleep on her back but right away changes her position to be on her stomach. I change her when I'm awake but worry when I sleep.
No worries...: Healthy babies in America are recommended to sleep alone (face up until able to roll over, then whatever babies want) in a safe bassinet or crib, from the time they are born. It is not possible nor advisable to constantly watch a baby nor be with a baby while he is sleeping (parents need their rest!). No worries... as what shall be shall be. Parents should not hover over their children too much. ...Read more
4 month old baby started rolling on stomach in sleep and is sleeping more comfortably. Will he turn head to side? Sometimes hes face down in matress.
Two issues: First, I never worry about whether a baby shifts their position at night when they have the physical ability to role. Second, since SIDS is associated with belly sleeping, I don't put them down on their belly for the first year. Yes they can turn their head, and we belly slept babies up until 1992 when the back to sleep movement began. Since then we have seen a 40% decline in SIDS ...Read more
