Falling asleep on his front!

At night Ds goes to bed and is usually asleep before he goes up, if not he's nearly there. In the day I tend to put him in his bed when he shows signs he's tired and see how he goes. He has been much better of late (once I decided to stop stressing about them ironically) and will roll around and play in his cot before nodding off. The thing is he's started doing this on his front with his face buried in his comforter. I've been keeping a very close eye on the monitor for his breathing and have been rolling him over as well. Is he ok like that if I just leave him? I don't want to disturb him but at the same time it looks bizarre seeing him like that. At 8 months is he ok doing this?

He's fine I have 2 who slept on their front as soon as they could it's only dangerous for babies who can't roll over.

Once they can roll themselves over, you don't need to keep them on their backs.

We got a lot more sleep once they did too because they were clearly far more comfortable and slept longer.

Thank you. He looks so comfy and so peaceful! He's on his side now and fast asleep as I moved him. It just looks a bit worrying when he's got his face smushed into the mattress and his ted!
