OK, so I am new to this forum and maybe this question regarding sleeping position has already been discussed before. But here I go. My LO is 4 weeks old and is having trouble with sleeping on her back. I guess she has tummy ache coz of gas. I religiously burp her after feeding but to no avail.
She won't stay asleep for more than an hour when put in her back after which she starts fussing.
I was reluctant to let her sleep in any other position but thought I would see how she sleeps on her tummy. I flipped her over to her tummy and she slept peacefully. Of course I was watching her the whole time. I am a stay at home mom so I can afford to stand guard over my DD like that.
So my question is is it safe to let her sleep on her tummy during daytime naps. I don't mean just putting her on her tummy and leaving the room. If I am there to flip her to her back if she seems uncomfortable can I let a 4 week old to sleep on her tummy.
