hello.. my baby always wants to sleep on his tummy.. he sleeps really well like that also... is it safe to let him sleep that way?

Its ok... My baby also sleeps like that... Infact many babies prefer to sleep like that once they start to roll over...

it's safe as long as u r keeping in supervision all time. it's not recommended position for babies to sleep in that position as it can constrict airways. it's one of positions which is said to cause SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome). so pls sure your baby is not left unattended when sleeping in that position. make ur baby sleep on his or her back.

if your baby can turn on his own, no harm in sleeping on tummy. you need to keep an eye however.

thank you.. when I try to turn him back in his sleep.. he gets up and starts crying.. 

dear nisha lobo, u can use a baby sleep bag and slightly roll a blanket near baby right side so he doesnt roll over in.his sleep. for young babies its dangerous to sleep.on tummy but.if ur baby is older then its not a problem
