I try but she keeps flipping over. She is actually my first back sleeper. All the rest have been tummy sleepers.

I let her sleep on her tummy for naps if I'm right there with her. I agree, she generally sleeps better that way, especially if she has gas.

I break them. That's the only way Jamison will sleep.

We allow them to sleep on their bellies all the time while we're awake. They sleep SO much better that way. I would love to let them sleep that way at night, but I'm too afraid. My mom keeps telling me that the three of us slept on our bellies and we're fine, but I would never forgive myself if something happened to them.

Yep. I stressed about it for the first few weeks, but after watching him for the first naps - and seeing how well and easily he lifts his head, etc - we do it and I'm fine with it. I was a tummy sleeper as a baby, both of my other boys are tummy sleepers, it's just what we do, LOL.

I let him sleep on his tummy when his angel care monitor is on- during the day he just naps on me.

Zoe spends most of her time in the Mamaroo so she is on her back and only on her back in the bassinet. I will let her sleep on her tummy the odd time when she is on my bed or the couch and I am beside her.

Mason primarily sleeps on his side, but sometimes he'll sleep on his tummy.

I haven't tried Gavin on his belly yet for naps. He sleeps well on his back for now
