My son is 20 weeks old and has just started to sleep on his side in his crib. When I looked in his crib he was on his stomach and I had to move him back onto his back. They all say that is it not good for your babies to sleep on their stomach. I am getting a little concerned, please help me out.

Ask your child's doctor what the best angle on this is. But if your babies are turning over on tummies and sides and such, there is not much you can do to prevent them from turning over. Look at websites that have .org or .edu in them to find things on babies turning over and sleeping on their sides and tummies. When my daughter was born they urged us to use the tummy as they feared the salivia would choke the infant. When my son was born seven years later they said use the back rather than tummy. Once he rolled over and was all over the place I let it go but kept an eye on him. I still covered him from about the waist down.

Roll up a towel or small blanket and place it against his tummy that way he cant roll forwards only backwards :)
