Every time I put my 4 month old down to sleep, when I go and check on her she is sleeping on her stomach! I hate this!! I'm afraid she will suffocate! I always flip her on her back but it wakes her up then she starts crying til she falls back to sleep. I don't want to wake her up anymore should I? I need advise. thanks

Once your baby is rolling over there's really not a lot you can do to keep her on her back. Just make sure there is nothing in the cot that could get caught around her face/head (toys, extra blankets etc), keep the room well-ventilated and ensure her mattress is firm. Most babies prefer to sleep on their bellies once they can roll.
