Tummy or Back Sleeping

Boy... has the age-old sleep position argument/debate for baby EVER changed over the past few decades.

Which method did you practice when putting your child(ren) down in their cribs?

Did you attempt to force or mould your child(ren) to sleep in one preferred position over the other?

Did you correct them when they veered from the normal?

I put my kids down both ways from the start, however, once they were able to roll over on their own, I let them be with whatever position they took to moving into and sleeping in.

I was the black sheep. Imagine that. My babies were always put down to sleep on their backs. Never on the tummy. I never corrected them. When they could roll over I didn't worry about it. Until then they slept on their backs with rolled up blankets around them. I was so scared of SIDs and babies suffocating.

Yep, I, too, rolled blankets/towels (even diapers) to use as bolsters.

I have been putting him in tummy down position, in his crib,and never corrected him but ever since he started his Day Care, he has been put to sleep in tummy up position as the care takers at Huntington Day Care, where he goes say,that it is not good for the kids to sleep tummy down specially after they have eaten their food, so I started putting him tummy down up position too.
