Newborn Tummy Sleeping - Page 2

post #21 of 22
My son (4.5 months) can roll over both ways with ease. I know I'm "supposed" to put him down on his back and let him do the roll to the stomach, but I don't. Who does that? And what difference would it possibly make? All the moms I talk to in real life say the same thing, and many didn't even do back sleeping until the rolling happened.

Oh, this is really interesting (from national institute of child development, http://www.nichd.nih.gov/sids/sids_qa.cfm):

Are there any babies who should be placed prone for sleep?

There may also be other specific infants in whom the risk/benefit balance favors prone sleeping. The risk of SIDS increases from approximately 0.86 SIDS deaths per 1,000 live births to 1.62 when babies sleep prone* (that is, 998 of every 1,000 prone-sleeping babies will not die of SIDS). This relatively small increased risk may be reasonable to accept, when balanced against the benefit of prone sleeping for certain babies.
