Keep putting them on their backs, and if they roll over onto their tummy, they can also roll back. But I know I would worry, too. I'm a worry wort.


Once Eliana started rolling over, there wasn't much that I could do. She likes sleeping on her stomach. I still lay her down on her back, but she rolls over to her stomach.

Once they start rolling over, most pediatricians will tell you to still lay them on their back, but don't worry if they roll over. Eliana moves around often in her sleep, but she does sleep on her tummy. I am always very nervous, but I can't keep going in and waking her up to turn her over.

1. My baby is going places! She is starting to roll, scoot, and even crawl. Suddenly she is getting into everything! I’ve followed her around the house to spot anything that isn’t safe for a baby to explore, and I’ve made sure everything dangerous is out of reach or securely locked.
