Re: 4 week old will only sleep on me!

I know on the back is what is recommended, but, for me, with the one I'm growing right now, if she'll only sleep on her belly then belly it is. However, she'll be in the bassinet right beside me so I feel comfortable with that.
This was exactly DD's issue. She refused to sleep on her back.

Labels? I don't use labels. I can't even get my label maker to work.
