My son is almost 8 months old and has recently taken to rolling over onto his stomach in his sleep. Is it okay to leave him on his belly?

I read where if they are able to roll over on their own, they have enough muscle control and should be fine. Of course this doesn't completely take the risk for SIDS away. But my little girl has been doing this for a couple months. I just took off all the fluffy stuff like the bumper pad. The book says not to worry about it, he should be fine.

If he has good muscle control (obvously he does if he can roll over) then he is fine to sleep on his tummy. Some babies just are more comfortable that way
