I listened to my books and my midwife about my son sleeping on his back, because of the risk of SIDS. After he turned a month old, I couldn't keep him on his back to save my life, I tried the pillows that are made to keep babies on their backs, and even those didn't work. So now, at 6 months old, he sleeps on his stomach, and he's the most comfortable, whereas, on his back, he tossed and turned all night. He has very good control of his head, and has never had a problem on his stomach. Does anyone else have a picky sleeper?Answer Question

My children would not sleep on their backs. When my son was born we tried to make him stay on his back with the positioners, etc...nothing worked. He woke up constantly. We gave in at about 2 weeks and let him sleep on his stomach. He slept a lot better, and we didn't have any problems.
There is always a debate as to which way is better. I think that as long as your baby is able to control his head, he should be fine.
Both of my children have been tummy sleepers, and are both happy and healthy toddlers.
Best of luck to you!
