Do you let them sleep on their tummy?


So Im probably running this into the ground, but going through the unswaddling battle is tough!

When C is unswaddled, the only way she puts herself back to sleep is half on her side partly on her tummy. What do you do? Wake them up and reposition? I'm kind of nervous to let her sleep on her tummy like that, she is 20 weeks old and can roll around.

Swaddled, she escapes her miracle blanket and it wakes her, usually the arms of the blanket are all wrapped around her, which is scary. Were now waking several times a night to reswaddle. Those are my options right now. What would you do? Let her tummy sleep?

At her age it should be safe. doctor told us that when they are able to roll from back to belly then they are safe to sleep on their tummy's.

Wonder this myself as this morning Avery was in her crib on her back and fussed and fussed and I came in and patted her back and she went to sleep on her tummy and was SOUND asleep. Only reason I left her that way was because I was up and about and checking on her...but at night...if left unswaddled and to her own devices, she'd roll to her tummy

Joe has slept on his tummy with very strong neck muscles since 7 weeks and our paediatrician suggested trying it with a angelcare monitor to help his reflux which it did immmmmmensley! So if really worried get a monitor and let lo tummy sleep xx

I was going to start a similar thread as LO only sleeps in her crib on her tummy. She has had reflux and slept on me for 6 weeks. I'm trying to slowly get her back in the crib starting with daytime naps and so far so good. She has very strong neck muscles (she is fine in a bumbo and bouncer) and when I put her in her crib overnight (hopefully within the next week or so) we will use the angelcare breathing monitor.

Lo learned to roll and would sleep on belly with his lil bim in the air it was so cute. He slept better but he wud do it himself thos started around 4 months. Hv said if he can roll its fine u dnt wna b up half the night repositioning. We didnt have a sensor monitor. At the time we lived in a 1 bed till we moved when lo was 6 months so im not froghtened at all about sids.. Well i get the odd occasion. General advice of lieing them on bak tho still applies let them find their postion. Hth x

I'm pretty sure she'd be fine at that age hun we only swaddled for a week or so, never experienced your problem so no advice. Does she have a baby sleeping bag? They're awesome!

yes! we swaddled for first 4 weeks, then he got mad with the swaddle wrap, the first night without it was hell!

Tried him on his tummy and he sleeps so much better, it has made me anxious but it seems to work best for him, also he's lifted his head from day one
