Anybody lay their baby on their side? Not tummy or back, but side.

Just wondering if it's relatively safe because when you google it, the sites are contradictory in their findings.

sorry not here. we always did back but he'd roll over it would have taken lots of proping to keep him to his side.

When Avery was that little, he didn't have the balance to stay on his side, so he would have just rolled back onto his back.

I always put them down on their backs, but it was not long before they would end up on their sides. I used the sleep postioner for a short while, and that helped them stay put.

For what it's worth, my mom put us down on our sides (those were the days of tummy sleeping), propped up with rolled receiving blankets (before the invention of the wedges) because she didn't feel comfortable with us on our back OR tummies.

Ask your pediatrician's advice...
