My baby is 11 weeks I put her in her crib on her side but she ends up on her back. I always put her back on her side. Is it ok to leave her on her back?
Yes: In studies since the "back to sleep" campaign in the early 90's we find it just as dangerous to place a child on its side as it is to leave them prone.In the us, the crib death rate has dropped 40+% since we moved to back sleeping. It becomes a bit futile to control their position after they roll over, but starting them on their back is best. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Since cow milk is designed for calves, infants were fed early & often to make up for deficiences in cow milk. Now that breast is back, or formulas mimic breast, solids are optional. The sitting child is more capable of participating & few sit before 6m. Babies can wait past a year and thrive. ...Read more
