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.
