#4monthold #sleepingposition #sleepingontummy
Hello ladies! My baby always sleeps on his stomach. Even if I put him to sleep on his back, he rolls over. If I try to restrict by placing pillows on both sides, he starts to cry. I've read about SIDS so I'm much worried. Pls tell whether it's really so serious if he sleeps on tummy. How to change this habit ? Awaiting for your suggestions

Hello subha..
if he loves to sleep in tht position then dont worry let him sleep..if u want to change his habit, try in day tym wen he starts sleeping..all of a sudden he wont change but day by day he ll come to knw..so be calm n patient..

Subha

ok Shilpitha. sure. thx!

hi subha, once baby learns to roll over, this their fav. position... no need to change the habit, he will himself change after a couple of months. i actually used to encourage this position as baby slept better and its also good for reducing gas. now as baby got older he sleeps straight, as well as on his side...

Subha

ok Sheeba. thx for the info

Subha.. . Nothing to worry. let ur baby explore positions. kids when start rolling, loves a feed the same way. absolutely ok momma.  just ensure you have pillows as protectors

Hai Subha... it's fine to sleep on his stomach. Just imagine all these days he was just sleeping in one position and now he know how to roll... he will do so.  Let him enjoy his sleep. Make sure nothing hard things are around him when he roll. Keep an eye over him..as kids roll to the end of the cot. Keep watching..that his nose is not obstructed by any cloth or toy for breathing. sometimes babies can again roll back to normal. If he have slept long enough on tummy..slowly roll him back. Many more sleeping position yet to discover by your lil adventurer. SIDS  are more apt for abroad.. wherein we can't keep our kid in same room where we sleep.
