I'd let her be as well. 5 out of 6 of mine were tummy sleepers from birth.

Re: How to keep lo from tummy sleeping?

I'd let her be. And I'd use my Snuza Halo breathing monitor especially since you are cosleeping? or did I remember that wrong?

Definitely let her be.

For peace of mind, leave a fan on in the room. Having the air circulating significantly reduces the chance of SIDS as well.

I read the official American Academy of Pediatrics stance on back to sleep vs tummy sleeping and it says that if they can roll from tummy to back then it's fine if they sleep in their tummy.
It also says no need to move them if they roll while they were sleeping. The point is to put them down on their back not ensure that they always sleep on their back.

It's a little breathing monitor that clips on the diaper. Very useful because you can use it anywhere baby sleeps - crib, pnp, bassinet, cosleeping, etc.

It was the only way I got a good night's sleep with DD.

Thanks all so helpful! This reinforced my research! I think she still needs me to watch her because I let her do her thing for a nap today and though she rolls herself if she moves after initial roll she puts her face down. I will feel comfortable now when she starts turning her face to the side!
