It is really dangerous on her tummy as the risk of SIDE goes up tremendously when on their tummy. There are people that will say they did it and it was fine, but there are lots that were not fine as well. Each parent has to make their own decision as to how they raise their child and what risks they are willing to take. So you have to decide it you are OK with the risk. If the chances of SIDE decreases by 80 percent on their back are you willing to take that risk? I too had one that liked her tummy better, but decided that I would never forgive myself if something happened because I laid her on her tummy to for me the risk was not worth taking.
