Some moms are afraid of letting their babies sleep on their back. But, not me. I even let Dannielle sleep on her tummy but with supervision. It helps her sleep sound plus develops her neck and head.
Tummy time is very important in the formation of a perfect head for babies and an advance development. Too little tummy time slows infant development. Infants who spend too much time on their backs have an increased risk of developing a misshapen head along with certain developmental delays. Infants need "tummy time" while they are awake to develop properly. Babies who do not get enough time on their tummies can also develop tight neck muscles or neck muscle imbalance — a condition known as torticollis. MSNBC parenting and kids
