I was told that once they start rolling their neck muscles are strong enough so they don,t suffocate. You shd still put them down on their back, but not worry too much if they roll.

Perhpas roll her back onto her back when she's completely asleep, just for your peace of mind. But, I'd back up what stella1w says.

Could you roll up some towels and put them either side of her?

My dd1 started doing this at 3 months! She was a big strong baby and learned to roll over very early. From then on she wanted to sleep on her front and every time I got up in the night to turn her, she she just flipped right over again and I was knackered from no sleep! I mentioned it to the health visitor who said not to worry and let her sleep how she wants. One thing that did help was putting her in a baby sleeping bag so she didn't come out of the covers and get cold when she rolled. Because she loved being on her front and was strong, she was crawling at 5 months, so watch out! My other 2 dcs hated being on their front and would just put their face on the floor and wail - they are all so different.
