Customer Question

Second opinion] My baby moves a lot while sleeping. I permanently make her lie on the back, but then she keeps moving and it could be that she sleeps on the tummy with her face down. I am afraid she can not breath or something is wrong and she can not sleep calmly.Is this all alright or there is anything I should do about it?

Thank you for further information,

It is necessary to keep the babies on their back during sleep to avoid SIDS as you know.

However, when they grow up they can change position or roll over on their own.

When they are able to do it themselves, it is not necessary to change them to back continuously.

Please do not worry.

Just keep an eye on her.

I hope this information helps.

If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.

Wish her good health.

Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.

Regards.
