Rolling over in 6 days?!

My DD started rolling on her side after 5 days of being born. At 7 days old she can completely roll on her stomach. She's now 9 days old, aand it worries me that she can roll around like this. Do you think i should flip her over? If i do she just rolls back over. they said if she can roll over on her on then its ok to leave her because she can roll back over. But i dont know if she can roll back over.shes only 9 days old.
Anyone else having this problem?

  • My son and daughter both rolled over a few times before they were even a month old! It was on accident though. It would be dangerous to leave her rolled over thing young when she's sleeping. She needs to be on her back, try using a sleep positioner.

  • You can purchase "bumpers" to keep your child in place if you're worried she'll roll over onto her face while you're not there. (Not sure what they're called, but it looks like two bolster pillows with fabric between that you lay the baby on...)
