Thanks for the info Misty. My dd is just a week over 4 months. Ever since she's been able to turn from her back to belly I've been a basket case. From day one I've put her to sleep on her back but ever since she learned how to roll onto her belly she prefers that as her sleeping position. After she falls asleep I flip her over but she usually goes right back to it. My dr. said there's nothing I can really do, but she IS strong so that's good. I have her sleeping in our bedroom now (mostly for me, so I can check on her throughout the night).

The nurse who runs our hospital's mother-baby-hour told us that once they can flip like that that they will be able to move/flip to avoid suffication. She said flipping them was not necessary. My DS has flipped to his tummy ever since he learned how too.

I would feel so much better if she could flip back to her back herself, though! My dr. told me not to worry, but I just CAN'T.

I read too much, lol! Ignorance IS bliss, lol!
