So this may be a silly question/concern, but my 4.5mo old son, who has always slept on his back w/ no problems...and has been capable of rolling for about 2mo now, all the sudden is a HUGE fan of sleeping on his tummy. We put him down on his back, and before we even leave the room, he has situated himself onto his tummy... I tried rolling him back to his back, he stays asleep...but goes right back to the tummy! So now I'm a nervous wreck d/t the risks of SIDS and all of that... So I'm asking, should I make a big deal of this and go to great lengths to get him back on his back?? If so...any suggestions?? OR, should I just let it be and let the poor lil guy sleep in peace on his tummy (but check on him more often). Any thoughts, fellow Moms??
