My son is 8 1/2 months old and has recently started flipping himself onto his stomach in his sleep, and tonight for the first time he fell asleep on his belly... can I leave him? My SO had a shitfit when he seen it but while Im still awake and right beside him im not too worried.. but it kinda freaks me out too.. I can hear, see and feel him breathing but should I flip him before I go to sleep?

Thanks for the replies everyone!!!
mydshad the special sleep positioner and was swaddled, on his back, till after 5 months. then he hit teething. then i gave up and he slept how ever i got himtolay down.
dd, shes been fun (not!)! she is a tummy sleeper and has been since month three when she learned to roll by kicking her legs up. she crazy strong and by 5 months was wiggling around the crib. shes 9 months now and sleeps on her belly.
