For now, Summer won't sleep anywhere but her swing or rock n play sleeper. We've tried putting her in the pac n play and her crib and she won't have it. (which is weird because she slept in the pac n play at my mother's)

I know when we first brought her home and she slept in the pac n play (like twice) she would roll to her side.

He likes to sleep on his tummy... and since he's on the pulse ox monitor and oxygen anyway we let him.

Probably on her belly. She went through a small, couple day phase, where she wanted to sleep on her belly only. So she spent a lot of time on my chest. . . But I also would let her sleep on her belly during the day when I was awake and could watch her. At night she sometimes would prefer to be chest to chest on me - Which is fine. But she mostly sleeps on her back/kind of on her side.

Cora actually likes her back. Any time she's on her belly she tries to flip. It's weird, because Ted only would sleep on his belly, and i let him.

He's my first side sleeper! My other kids have been belly sleepers and he loves his side so far. He likes his belly when he has gas, but other than that, he sleeps best on his side.

She loves to sleep on her tummy. When I am up and around, I let her. When we are trying to all sleep, she is on her back. She doesn't seem to mind it but she sleeps best on her tummy.

She'll stay on her back for a few minutes but always ends up rolling on her side and has been doing that since the day she was born. My pediatrician says it's fine so whatever makes her happy

Carlie will not sleep on her back or her stomach, if she falls asleep in your arms and you lay her either of those ways she is awake in 2 minutes or less. I am fine with side sleeping, but she isn't able to get herself on her side so she has to be supported to stay on her side at night (if I want any sleep at all that is. So I have two blankets rolled up that I put from her belly button down to her feet on each side. Most the time its enough support, but occasionally she still flips to back or tummy and wakes up and lets us all know about it!

E's a big side sleeper like I am. He also like to be on his tummy when he's laying on his favorite pillow top mattress aka me. lol
