    What happens if you turn his head to the side but leave him on his tummy?

    He should be fine on his tummy honestly. Sometimes dd sleeps with her face down and knees tucked up. I have tried to move her head but she wakes up!! I hope that doesn't happen to you!

    My baby is doing exactly as you describe. She is 7 months old and has been sleeping on her front for the last 3 weeks but she is also totally face planting head first in the mattress. I keep going in to move her but she goes straight back to the face plant position. I really don't know to do about it. Wish I could be more helpful. The front sleeping doesn't bother me but the face planting does.

    my ds2 was doing that so I got a breathing moniter. I just couldn't forgive myself if something happened and I decided to be safe than sorry. he would wake instantly if I tried to move his head to the side... and his face would be red. so a no go for me.

    Yep. I have the oricom breathing monitor and it does help with my fears but I still worry. That monitor is awesome though because it detects if their breathing has slowed. I have had one since birth and was getting confident to pack it away but not after this recent sleep habit!

    yep read that. I know tummy sleeping is fine at this age but sleeping face down on a mattress worries me.
    My bub actually wakes less on her tummy.

    have a go yourself at sleeping face down in a mattress. you should quickly realize that your airways are still open so not possible to suffocate
    it's actually why we have a nose!

    as long as the mattress is very firm than he'll be right.

    my DS does it too and I agree, very nerve wracking...
