when baby is sleeping... *hurry get in here*

My Youngest dd will be 6 months in 3 days. SHe has absolutely refused to sleep alone since she was 3 days old. Well, tonight she has actually gone to sleep in her crib and I'm ecstatic! However, she loves to lay on her tummy and I'm having some anxiety about it. She does roll back and forth BUT sometimes she forgets to move her arms and gets stuck on her tummy. She still lifts her head up with no issue. I'm right next to her but I'm still super scared.

Since she can lift her head, is she alright to sleep on her tummy? I've rolled her back 3 times already and she goes back to her tummy. I don't want her to wake up because I keep moving her but I want her to be safe.

Help!!!

If she's rolling herself that way then she should be fine. Get an angelcare monitor if you're truly that paranoid.

My DD was the same way, a tummy sleeper from day one. We had a hell of a time with her but at six months her pediatrician said it was fine to let her sleep on her stomach. Now at 1 1/2 DD is a devoted stomach sleeper and we've had zero problems.

My pediatrician told us that one they roll on their own it's only disruptive to roll them back over. She said most of the risk is passed.

Just make sure there's nothing in the crib she can roll her face into.

If she can roll herself over and lift her head, let her sleep as she likes.

As long as she's able to roll over on her own. She should be OK.

If she can roll herself there...she's fine. Leave her alone.
