  • As long as she can roll over and hold her head up very well! I always put my babys on their side when they were real small but about 4 months I put them on their back and let them turn on their stomach themselves.

  • It's very common for babies to prefer sleeping on their stomachs. Just make sure there is nothing in the crib that could obstruct your baby's breathing.
