  • They can lay on their tummy at any time... you don't want them sleeping on their tummy until they can roll over on their own.

  • I used the "Prop-a-baby" pillow, which was a side-wedge, from the time all my children came home from the hospital.....I alternated days when to switch sides, so today they all have nicely shaped heads, lol.....

  • We started tummy time pretty much as soon as we brought our dd home from the hospital. We never put her on her belly to sleep, but once she learned how to roll by herself she has been a belly sleeper.
