My daughter also slept on her tummy since birth. I understood the risks & kept a close eye on her, but she refused to sleep any other way (trust me I tried!!)
By now it should be well & truly safe but keep an eye on him

Like others have said, as long as he can flip himself there shouldn't be an issue. I still put my son to sleep on his back but when I go in to get him up he's obviously been all around the crib and is typically on his belly.

Hi there. My son was born May 12, 2008 and once he learned how to roll on his tummy, he loves sleeping on it. I have always heard that when they learn how to roll on tummy then they are strong enough to sleep on it. Nice talking to you!

Yes. He was born in may right? So yes, if the baby is strong enough and knows enough to turn his head and lift it up himself then he is fine. If you get concerened then just check on him. My daughter was born may 1st and loves sleeping on her side and tummy.
