I have a little girl who is almost 3 months old and if I lay her down right away after I feed her she gets the hiccups no matter what I got her one of the boppy pillows it is just a big neck pillow really. I has helped so much. it was only about $20. Hope this helps.

J., My oldest son was 4 weeks premature and he is a very health 5 year old. WHen he was born the HOspital placed him on his stomach to sleep. He too would spit up badly it seemed like everything he ate came spitting back up. He always slept on his stomach that was the only way he would sleep good. Other wise he only slept for 5 to 10 minutes at a time. They are all just myths. You know your child and what she likes not all kids are the same. Good Luck!!

bebe sounds makes a baby monitor with a sensor pad that goes underneath the mattress and hooks into the monitor that goes in the babies room. If the sensor pad doesn't detect any movement (as small as a breath) for 20 seconds an alarm goes off on your end. Mine was used up until my son quit sleeping in his crib (about 2 years), and it went off 1 time. So it wasn't a false alarm kind of thing, and it does work.
Walmart carries it for about $60.

Honestly let her sleep that way she wants, I have 3 kids and I couldn't get my middle one to stay on his back to save my life. He always slept with his butt in the air and only his head covered. Now he's five. Also my friend baby had acid reflux at that age , turned out to be milk alergy instead.

NO NO NO please don't she is way to little the only time that she should be aloud to sleep on her stomach is when you are there the whole time if you want to let her fall asleep on her stomach then turn her once she is a sleep that would be ok but you have to stay until she falls asleep. When she is old enough to hold her head up on her own and can roll over with out any problems then maybe but even then I would be very careful. I have already lost a baby at 27 days old and would hate to see anyone else lose a baby. So what ever you decide to do be VERY CAREFUL.

There is so much advice not to sleep on the belly, I wouldn't. What we did that worked wonders is to put a pillow under the crib matress (head end) to elevate it just slightly. They even make wedge pillows althought they are quite spendy. The elevation helps contents stay in her belly! Good luck! (It's a long road...but mine completely stopped at one year old.)

When JJ was born he was diagnosed with Acid Reflux shortly after I let him sleep on his stomach but made sure everything bulky was out of the crib I even bought him a blanket that zipped around his body rather then using a lose one

J., I know what you are going through. My now 5 yr old daughter had the same thing. At 5 days she gave us a big scare and I thank god we were awake when this happened. She started shaking really bad and the 1st thing I thought was seizure. My hubby called for an abulance. All the sudden she had a lot of bubbly spit coming from her mouth and next thing you know she stopped breathing. I was scared! Paramedics arrived and got her breathing, thank god. Did a cat scan and other test at the hospital. Finally the big relief....not a seizure. BUT...acid reflux. We spent 1 week in the hospital to find that out. They sent her home on a Apnea monitor (and zantack) and it was my piece of mind. She also slept better on her stomach. I let her since I knew the monitor was there to alarm me. Trust me...there is no sleeping through the alarm on that thing.
Is she on one?
