Babies should always be placed on their backs while in the crib. Side-sleeping or sleeping on the tummy is strongly discouraged, as it is known to be associated with increase risk of SIDS. (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). Also avoid co-sleeping as there is always a danger that you or your spouse may roll onto baby and cause suffocation.
