my son is 8 months old, and he can roll over, and ive noticed at night he tends to roll over to his belly to sleep, and it makes me nervous, but if i roll him back, he gets fussy with me and then he rolls back to his tummy again. lol
he is a pretty heavy boy, he is only 8 months old, and he wieghs 25 pounds.
is it okay if i let him sleep that way? im just afriad he cant roll himself back over... i know he tilts his haed to the side to breathe, obviously, but it makes me nervous...
is he fine? at this age sleeping like that? am i being to paranoid?? lol

Until the startle reflex dissipates most babies sleep more soundly either on their bellies or swaddled... my kids stayed swaddled for what seemed like forever... I know they make sleep positioners but they wont help babies not startle themselves .. so I guess your options would be let it be.. buy a sleep positioner, or a sensor pad ( although I think they make parents worry more), or try swaddling again. As long as he can turn his head though i wouldn't worry about it...

every pediatrician I talked to said If that's it was perfectly fine(swaddling) they dont roll when properly swaddled, many children stay swaddled 6-9m , at this age most can roll over... I never used a sleep positioner, just assumed their purpose was to prevent rolling
