My baby is a little over a week old? I was wondering is it normal for a new born to already be sleeping on her side. No matter how many times I put her on her back she returns to her side. She sleeps fine but it seems early.

My son started doing that the day we came home. The only thing we were told was to make sure he didn't spend a prolonged time on only one side, and that he doesn't roll on to his stomach. Some just advance faster :)

It is early. Your baby is obviously stronger and has better control of her body than most newborns. It's okay though. I wouldn't move her back on her back. Let her sleep in the position she's comfortable in.
