  • That would scare me too. Is your baby too big for one of those position pads at the baby stores? Have you asked your Dr about it? They might have suggestions.

  • the doctor said to leave her however she turns and not to use one of those pads when she starts to roll on her on. idk it just really gets to me. i am always waking up checking on her

  • I had a pad that looked like a triangle and it slipped alot. So I just rolled a bath flannel blankie in a sausage roll , and pushed it in her back to where the baby was just tipped on the slant a bit like into the rolled blanket. on her side. Don't know how else to say it.

  • I used those triangle pillows and they worked for me. GL

  • My dd used to do that. Just her head slightly so she is not completely face down

  • if your baby turns on her own she should be just fine sleeping bc she would turn her head on her own if she wasn't getting enough air, but to be safe i would adjust her head to the side after she's asleep.
