With DS2, we did get an Angel Care monitor to ease my mind a little.

And yes, as Shimpie mentioned, tummy sleeping is great for babies' gross motor development. Not to say that outweighs the risks, but if you are "stuck" with a tummy sleeper, that is a bonus
This is us. DD only slept on her tummy in pnp next to me, I quit worrying when she could turn her head. DS is 2 months and been sleepin on his tummy since about 1 week old, he could turn his bead from day 1 but I got an Angel Care monitor in anticipation of another tummy sleeper.
