Re: tummy sleeping

As long as you have no other contributing factors towards sids letting baby tummy sleep is going to b OK. I've been mothering long enough to have watched the whole progression of "how should baby sleep" go from baby "must" be on their tummy to 'suggesting' side sleeping to "must sleep on side" to 'suggesting' back sleeping to "must sleep on back". I have 6 children and ALL have slept on their tummies from birth except my premie (#5) and I tried...I reallly, really tried to get him to sleep on his back but after 6 exhausting week of having baby rarely sleep unless being held I caved and he slept on his tummy from then on. Trust your mothering instinct and go with what works.
