My oldest slept on his side for about a month, I was OK with it because he didn't really move very much at that point and he co-slept with us so I felt comfortable letting him sleep that way. It was either that or sitting up in a reclined position like in a swing or bouncy chair, which at night didn't work. But there are reclining pillows you can get that help keep them tilted up slightly and they just go under the crib sheet. I think for my son, he had such terrible digestive issues it hurt his little stomach to lie directly on his back because he spit up ALL the time.

my son slept on his side. He was in a rock n play right next to me so I didnt worry too much, Just alternate sides so that the babe doesn't end up with a flat spot :)
