    Swap him around in the cot. So put his feet at the opposite end to the end you currently do. Most babies will tend to turn their head to face the natural light (so sleep mostly facing the bedroom window). If you swap them around they will naturally turn their head the other way. If he doesn't then I would wonder if some discomfort is causing him to favor one side and I would then try a chiro or physio. Good luck xxx

    Dd2 was seeing a physio because she was prem and the physio picked up that she was favoring one side, so gave us a few tips:
    Roll a blanket up and lay it down one side of the body, so they're slightly propped
    Put visual things down on the side that you want them to look at when laying down
    Make sure they're facing in a way that they're seeing their surroundings straight on or to the side you want to encourage
    Put them at the opposite end of the cot
