how old is she? can she roll by herself? If she can roll by herself don't worry about her being on her tummy. I wouldn't put anything soft and/or fluffy in with her

My daughter was a tummy sleeper, until she rolled I didn't sleep at night because she was a) on her back so not sleeping, or b) on her tummy and I was next to her watching her. My mother told me not to worry, she will be fine.

I don't know what to say to help except that my dd's dr said during the day when you are near her let her sleep how she likes too. at night she needs to sleep on her back. However by the time she was 6 weeks she was on her tummy full time, but by then she could push herself up onto her hands....good luck!

 Actually as soon as I hit post I thought of something. When you are holding her to sleep, is her body facing yours? Try holding her while she is falling asleep so her tummy is facing up, get her use to that feeling. once she is use to that feeling start laying her down in her crib, bassinet, etc. I don't know if this will work but its an idea
