My son was exactly the same way, pretty much from day 1. He refused to sleep on his back or even on his side. I was so scared of putting him on his belly that I ended up spending more nights than not with him on chest sleeping. At 4 months we finally decided enough was enough and put him on his belly in his crib to sleep and he slept through the night. I was such a nervous wreck I slept on a chaise in his room for a while.
Occasionally he'd sleep in between my husband and I in bed. We had a sleep positioner that had an incline that we put up near the top of the bed, so he'd be right next to my head. Co-sleeping worked for me because I'm a light sleeper to begin with. The second he moved, I was awake.
I really hope you find a solution that works for you! I know how frustrating it is! It won't last forever.
