Is it safe if my toddler sleeps on her stomach?

Is it safe if my toddler sleeps on her stomach?

Generally, it is recommended that little ones under 12-months-old be placed on their backs to sleep to minimize the risk of SIDS or suffocation. Toddlers, though, can typically roll back and forth from their stomachs to their backs successfully, so sleeping on their stomachs is not a problem.
