Q.

sleeping

Hi

My child is 6months now and has always slept through the night.Now that she moves more though she is turning onto her stomach and burrying her face in her mattress therefore her sleep is being disturbed and we are not sleeping as we are worried she will suffocate herself.We have those sleep wedges to keep babies on their backs but she just roles over it if not sleeps on top of it.What can i do?

She will not suffocate as she is well past the stage where she was unable to lift her head and she seems to prefer sleeping on her tummy. It will make her very uncomfortable to use wedges to keep her in position now.
