If you truly sleep on your stomach, youre flat on your belly with your neck cranked to one side or another. If you look at a baby, they can easily do this, mainly because they are still developing those neck muscles to hold their head up.
Stomach sleeping is not recommended Of course we have learned that sleeping like this often can even be problematic for a baby, so they have them sleep on their backs. When we start to lose that neck elasticity (aka us older individuals) then we just cant comfortably sleep like this. However, if you get stuck in this habit, you may find yourself in this position when you wake up.
