My son only wants to sleep on his stomach, which I know is not safe according to the info about SIDS. I usually only let him sleep like that when I am awake and watching him, but I am having a hard time with him at night. He will only fall asleep if I am holding him on my chest, if I try to lay him down after he is asleep on his back in his bed he cries. I usually give him a pacifier and try to let him work it out for a minute or two, but if it doesn't work I pick him up. I have ended up letting him sleep on me at night so I can get some sleep, but I don't want it to be habit forming. Does anyone have any suggestions on getting him used to his back, and how to keep him asleep in his own bed?
