  • my one and a half month old sleeps so much better on her tummy. I let her sleep on her tummy sometimes and also her side.I just make sure and check her every 20 minutes or so. She sleeps for a lot longer and wakes up to eat a lot better too. Your baby should be fine if she can roll over herself. Just dont put a thick blanket down or anything. I personally lay my little one a burp cloth just in case she spits up a little it absorbs it right away.

  • I have two kids, and my daughter started sleeping on her belly when she was about 6 months old, and my son was 3 1/2 or 4 months.

  • my daughter has slept on her belly since she was 2 weeks old coming home from the hospital.. But even the experts say that when a baby is able to roll over its completely ok for them to sleep on their stomach, the risk of SIDS is reduced by like, 90%

  • most doctors say when your baby can roll over on their own that it is completely ok.
