    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    my 7 month old grandson insists on rolling to his belly while sleeping. I keep turning him back to his back but he only rolls over to his belly again. Is this acceptable and des anyone have a suggestion to keep him on his back that would not hamper his getting off his belly if he needs to on his own.

    The back is the safest position due to the risk of SIDS. But babies move around as they get older!

    Here's information from the WebMD Health & Baby Center:

    As babies mature, they learn to roll from their backs to their stomachs. Babies who roll onto their stomachs during sleep do not need to be continually shifted onto their backs. However, always initially place them to sleep on their backs.

    For more information about safe sleep, visit the WebMD Baby Health Center here: http://www.webmd.com/parenting/baby/tc/sudden-infant-death-syndrome-sids-prevention
