If she's able to roll by herself there shouldn't be any problem. My son was sleeping on his stomach from 5 months old - I'd put him down on his back but he'd roll straight over anyway, I took his top sheet and blanket out so he wouldn't get caught up in them so all he has in the cot is his bottom sheet. You can buy supports that stop them rolling around so you could put her in on her side and I think it would stop her rolling onto her stomach, or roll up a towel or something and put in front of her if you're worried about her rolling onto her front. Sooner or later they sleep however they want. As long as she is safe there shouldn't be any problem.

hi well i wouldnt worry to much my daughter sleeps on her side and she always has since she was little.
Aimee has slept on her side since a few weeks old as she had reflux and now she sleeps on her tummy all the time, if your worried about her rolling onto her face put her in a safety wedge, we used one for Aimee and it really works.
My 6 month old daughter Georgia sleeps on her side. She likes to have her arms straight out. I find because her arms are straight out it would be extremely hard for her to roll onto her face.
She is funny in the mornings though, on the rare occasion when I go in to get her she is on her belly. I have to laugh for she is crying to be picked up but at the angle she is lying she can not see me.
I am thinking of getting her a thin pillow to support her neck
I have twin 3.5mth old boys - while I was in hospital with them they were slept on their backs and never slept very well, once I came home somehow one of them rolled from his back to his front - this is how he has slept ever since and has been sleeping thru since 5 weeks (apart from when he is have a growth spurt!) my other twin like your baby sleeps on his side and is sleeping a good 6 hrs at night SO the way I see it is like this if the baby is getting enought sleep and is happy and healthy why change the position they sleep in? It is all to do with SIDS/Cot death, but when my mum was bring me and my brothers up she slept us all on our tummys - the advice seems to get changed every few years, you just need to do what is best for you and your baby!
My 5 & 1/2 month has just started sleeping on her side & tummy. We had Jordan in a wedge on her back but now she is stronger she gets herself out of this & finds a comfortable position to sleep in (like us I guess). Like everyone else I have heard that if baby is able to roll & lift head then the risk of them getting in breathing probs with face in the mattress is less. The first couple of nights my baby did this hubby was checking up on her every couple of hours but is a bit better now.
