I have always put my babies to sleep on their sides. My oldest was a preemie and it took a long time for him to be able to keep breathing while lying on his back, and my other babies have all been very prone to spitting up in their sleep.

I have read the research and the biggest difference in the incidence of SIDS is between putting babies to sleep on their stomachs and sides. The statistical difference between side sleeping and back sleeping as a predictor of SIDS is minuscule-- they're basically equally safe from a SIDS perspective, but a baby who sleeps on their side is less likely to aspirate spit-up, which may not be a big risk to the life of a healthy, term-born infant, but it's very disruptive to their sleep.

Yes, I do. I always put my baby sleep on his back. Sometime, he falling asleep while breast feeding, too.

I always put my baby to sleep on his back. This is a natural sleeping position for a baby (especially in baby carriage).

I always put baby to sleep on her back especially when she was an infant and using a bassinet. When she started being able to roll, I would find her sleeping on her side and it appeared as if she was comfortable in this position so I didn't worry about it. Once she was able to roll onto her tummy, I would continue placing her on her back but she would turn herself right over onto her tummy and sleep that way, even during the night. I would check to see if her face was turned to the side so as not to obstruct her nose however she naturally did this herself. Just make sure there aren't any blankets or toys in the crib and there's not much else you can do.

I don't believe in anything more than common sense when it comes to this issue. Like, people have only been sleeping with their babies across cultures everywhere, for aeons. We should be looking harder at the real reason kids die in their sleep.

Side sleeper

My son was also preemie, I also put him to sleep on his side and I made sure he stayed that way with a rolled blanket, it just seemed safer.
