Recently, I had a young Mom come to me exasperated and completely exhausted because her baby was not sleeping at night. The baby loves to sleep on his tummy but would roll over, not be able to roll back and not go back to sleep, crying endlessly. Mom and Dad would go, numerous times during the night and roll the baby back over. Baby would sleep for a short period of time and then the cycle would repeat itself over and over again throughout the night. I advised the young Mom to go in and check the baby but not to roll the baby back over. The trick is not to physically touch the baby but obviously check on baby to make sure he was oh kay. Within, three days baby was sleeping through the night and falling to sleep on his back. Mom and Dad were amazed and so pleased that they were able to get a good nights sleep again. I am not claiming to know everything about sleep patterns for babies but I found it helpful raising my five children and this Mom also found it worked.

It's a little risky to leave the baby on its stomach, but I have heard of many parents who do this simply because the baby cannot seem to get a restful sleep on their back. I don't think I would do it myself as I'm paranoid of SIDS, but if it works for you and you're diligent about checking on the baby, I can't really see the harm.
