Hi! My baby is 6 months old. She has been rolling from back to tummy from 4 months and has preferred to sleep on her tummy ever since! Lately she started to sleep with her head straight down into the mattress! With her arms up and hands supporting her forehead if that makes sense... Everytime I try to turn her head to the side but she goes back to that position. is this something I should be concerned and stop this habit? The problem is I do t sleep at all as I ho into her room and check her every 15 minutes whereas she gets great sleep when on tummy! If we try to move her on the back or turn her head most of the times she would wake up screaming so I really don’t know what to do!
I am the room leader in the baby room and I have had a few parents have their child/ baby that's less then a year old sleeping on their side or tummy. What is the appropriate age or months that children are able to sleep on their tummy or side. We follow the Red Nose guidelines as well having all babies sleep on their backs. But would like to know so that I am able to understand and share with parents the importance of their child's sleep.
