Should I worry if my baby rolls over?

Should I worry if my baby rolls over?

Many families wonder what they should do when their baby starts rolling over in her sleep. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that all babies be put to sleep on their backs. However, once your baby can roll over, don’t worry about it – she’s out of the danger zone. It is much less safe to have something like a sleep positioner or pillow in the crib, as these things can smother a baby.

Also, know that once your little one can roll over in her crib, it’s also time to wean the swaddle.
