What position does your baby sleep in?

Does anyone else let their baby sleep on their stomach? DD seems to sleep better on her stomach, even though I'm hesitant to let her so most of the time I put her on her back and she ends up being on her side. I know they say by the time they can roll themselves onto their stomachs the risk of SIDS is lower so it's ok if they do that; at the same time they still tell you not to place them on their stomachs That's never made a whole lot of sense to me.

I put Winter on her tummy. She overpowers that little positioner and gets to it anyhow. Half the time when I put her on her back, she does that leg jerk, and then wakes up screaming. Tummy it is! She's rolling and scooting so I don't worry.

you don't have to worry about SIDS now,they'll move that neck. Kyler always sleeps on his side,he wont accept anything else. Just like his mommy and daddy.

Ellie just sleeps on her back...I don't mind if she were to move while sleeping but she hasn't yet.

Cooper sleeps on his stomach. Once he could roll over there was no stopping him. He sleeps much better this way.

Our little girl sleeps on her side.... sometimes she rolls to a tummy or back position.... if you're way worried about SIDS they say the big problem is caused by the plastic covering on most mattresses, when babies drool it sits there and creates some kind of chemical reaction that causes fumes. There is a pad you can buy to prevent this.

My question is..... if they know this is the problem why are the mattress companies still allowed to use the plastic???

Since Robby figured out how to roll, he's slept on his side or tummy. I still put him on his back so he can be the one to figure out his own position, but I don't worry about him at all.

That's crazy I suppose the companies claim that that isn't the reason, but still...

Jack will NOT sleep on his back, never has. I had him sleep on my chest for the first 10 weeks. Then I bought the angelcare motion monitor and let hime sleep on his tummy. He moves a lot in his sleep now and can roll both ways so I will likely stop the motion part of the monitor soon.

Olivia is an equal opportunist. She mainly sleeps on her side and back. But when sleeping with me in the mornings rolls on her tummy.
