Yes, you are supposed to lay them on their back, but make sure you don’t wrap baby too tightly around her / his hips as it can cause hip dysplasia (may not be correct spelling) – it pushes them out of alignment. I have a niece and her children who would not settle with their arms wrapped in tightly. They would wriggle around until they were so exhausted they would eventually go to sleep but not for as long as they should have. Once their arms were loose and they could move them they would be asleep within 15 minutes.
