    baby likes to sleep on side

    Hi,

    My 7 month old has recently started to roll himself to his side while he sleeps and seems to prefer to sleep that way even though I put him in the crib on his back. Is this something to worry about in terms of SIDS?

    I think being on side is totally fine, but my son also slept on his tummy since 3 month b/c of reflux. your baby though is most likely on the verge of learning how to flip himself anyways at which pt there's no stopping him! :)

    by 7 months a baby is old enough to sleep anyway they like. so long as they can lift their heads/roll over, there isn't a problem.
