  • They recommend babies sleep on their backs now in order to prevent SIDs. However, if your baby is old enough to roll, you may be unable to prevent them from turning themselves over while sleeping - but it's not something to stress over or correct each time it happens.

  • On their back I was told, but then I'd panic when DS was able to move, if he'd move onto his belly I'd move him back!

  • No side, just backs and when they are awake make sure they have plenty of tummy time, nothing in the bed, no pillows, no blankets, no stuffed animals.

  • There was a big radio campaign around here a few years ago that recommended you remember the phrase, "Back to sleep." nd I was surprised to find that crib bumpers are no longer recommended either because of the smothering risk.
