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.

My baby is only 12 weeks old and he is already rolling onto him belly and sleeping. Is it okay to leave him like this?
Always start on back: Do what you can to position babe at the start of the evening. If repositioning from the belly in the night would wake the child avoid it. At 12 wks he should be simply dressed , on a firm mattress with nothing else in the crib/basinette.If the babe is awake when you check in the night reposition on the back until 5-6m. At that point i find it a lost cause. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
