    rolling over in sleep
    An_263891 posted:
    My five month old baby is rolling over at night from his back to his tummy. he only does this in his crib not in his bassenette. not sure if i should roll him over in the middle of the night or if he wakes up and goes back to sleep afterwards. he has been going tummy to back for about six weeks now and about three weeks he has been going back to tummy, more so in the middle of night/morning. not sure if this normal or a concern. really afraid of SIDS. Please help

    My 5 month old has been doing the same thing and it has been worrying me and my husband because we dont like her on her tummy/face so we take turns in the middle of the night to check on her because were first time parents and we get paranoid. I feel its fine and I think babys at this age have natural instincts to turn their face to the side and such to prevent suffocation but talk with your pediatrician to be sure. Best wishes! xoxo
