My DD was in the NICU and they put her to sleep on her side so now she wont sleep on her back only her side. She is 9 weeks old. She will roll to her side if I put her on her back. I was curious how your babies sleep..side back or belly?

When my daughter was that age..she constantly slept more on her side..  Now that she's 1 & 1/2, she sleeps on her back...

But she's been a co-sleeper from the time she was born til now...  ( thought i'd throw that out there) lol

The side is perfectly fine, especially if she's putting herself that way.  Just make sure, since she's a preemie, that she doesn't keep going and roll over to her belly.

My daughter was born at 30 weeks and always slept on her back, until she could roll over to her side, now she mostly sleeps on her side, but sometimes she's roll onto her belly.  She's 10 months now.

It may just be that she's used to co-sleeping, and cuddling with you, that she's used to sleeping on her side.. and it's more comfortable for her!

My ds usually sleeps on his side. Sometimes on his back, he is almost 6 months old. There are times he roles on to his tummy at night but he wont sleep that way in fact he will wine until you put him back on his back, but he knows how to roll to his back on his own lol
