We place our 5 and a half month old daughter on her back to sleep in her cot however she rolls onto her tummy. She hasn't figured out how to roll from tummy to back just yet so we are having to help her. It becomes an issue though when she is resettling herself overnight. She rolls onto her tummy and either pins one arm underneath her or just sleeps on her tummy. She seems to lie on her cheek rather than face down, but it's obviously still concerning for us. Is this something to be concerned about at this age? All babies roll and I'm sure most do so when sleeping, but how do we manage it when all sleeping guidelines are understandably to get the child to sleep on their back? Do you have a resource providing more information and help?
Just wondering why there is a decreased risk of SIDS when room sharing? My 4 month old is currently in our room but it's now getting to the point where we are disrupting each other's sleep. I wanted to keep him there until 6 months as per the recommendation but am considering moving him to his own room earlier so we can all get a better night's sleep. Thanks
