I'm not saying a child is going to die from tummy sleeping. Or one that is on their back won't. It's based on risk assessment. What's that risk like to your child? You do not know. None of us do. Sadly.

I would try happiest baby on the block methods. Swaddling, ect. My child would wake Everytime he twitched. My husband and I spent so much time learning how to make him comfy, how to swaddle him (then wean him from that) ect. I don't think it's any different than anything else in parenting. A learning curve. Kwim?
