    Default Sleeping on tummy?

    DS 14 months sleeps on his tummy. All night every night, and also for day sleeps.

    He never sleeps on his back or side.

    I am just wondering if this is normal?

    If I slept in the same position every night all night long I know I would wake up uncomfortable, like need to stretch or move etc.

    Sometimes I wonder if he even realizes he can roll over and change position?? He only moves his head, turning it to face different sides. But always stays on his tummy.

    Is this ok or should Mention it to my doctor?

    If he gets himself onto his tummy and is physically able to roll back, then I would think that if he's uncomfy he would move

    Yeah he gets himself that way, and I used to put him on his back but he always rolls back to tummy. I still lay him down that way but he turns immediately. He can of course lift himself with his arms and into sitting position etc when he wakes.

    He just never 'rolls' from tummy to back or tummy to side.

    My 11 month old has slept on her tummy for a few months now. Everyone has different sleep preferences, I hate sleeping on my tummy! I wouldn't worry, sounds normal to me :-)

    My DS slept on his tummy as soon as he could roll over.
    Nothing I did could change it. He still sleeps on his tummy most of the night.

    I'm not worried about tummy sleeping, more that he never changes position... Never sleeps any other way. Not even for 10 minutes.
