Always sleeping on left side.

7 months old Younger of my twin son has developed a habit of sleeping on his left side, where as other sibling sleeps face up. My wife feels that sleeping on sides may not be healthy for him. Can any one suggest if this is appropriate ? How can we help him to correct this habit? more  

Probably change in diaper can help. For my son I am using pant style diaper and never face this problem. more  
Thank you very much for your replies, Apart from medical perspective I was seeing the problem with another angle. Due to side sleeping the Diaper is not lasting more that 3-4 hours this was also a major reason which prompted me to try to change his sleeping habit. more  
Its ok. You need not worry.

At this age my son also developed habit of right side. I tried different ways to extract him on other side eg. Putting toys, turning by myself but no success. I read on internet that this is all about which brain is more dominant but i am not sure about this reason, this is what I read. Gradually he himself left this habit so I believe there is nothing wrong. Also I never read that this may effect health. more
