'The sleeping baby lies on my bed' should be accepted?

Uh, English question here. Is "laying in my bed" incorrect? I always get confused when it's appropriate to use "lay" vs "lie"

Lay must have an object "I lay something down" whereas lie can't have an object such as here where "the baby is lying".
