Hello, as the above says my little man is rolling over in his sleep onto his tummy nearly everynight, its great that he's learning don't get me wrong, but I am seriously exhausted I was up 5times the other night turning him onto his back ....he struggles to get back onto his back and whinges or cries which is obviosuly when I have to get up and sort him out, anybody got any suggestions as to what I can do to keep him still during the night or stop him rolling, because he is grumpy also in the day where he is not sleeping like he usually does.
Have you tried one of those supports that go either side. They are quite cheap and keeps them on their back. Although I did read somewhere (goodness knows where) if he's rolling over then that's where he is most comfortable and to leave them but I understand why you worry.
We've had exactly the same problem over the last few weeks. I've rolled up a towel and put it under the sheet on the right hand side as this is where she usually rolls. Now though, she just shuffles right up to the top of the cot where the towel doesn't reach and rolls over there instead! She's also managed to roll over so that she was lying on top of the towel... Some nights are worse than others and the only thing I'm doing now is trying to give her lots of tummy time so that she can roll back over herself. I'd leave her on her front except she gets very upset by it. Hope it sorts itself for you soon
I had this problem and i tried just a few things rolled u towels etc. however i think it is a phase and they grow out of it.... It lasted about a fortnight for me and then Holly learnt to sleep on her front...
Ellis was the same and got more frustrated if we used towels to stop him moving!! Until he mastered rolling over back we did need to keep moving him back as he woke in the most awkward postitions. I was waking more than we he was feeding at night!! He will only sleep on his front now, (as soon as he is put in the cot he rolls straight on his front and is out in a minute!) and always shuffles to the top. We found lots of tummy time helped to help build his body strengh up.
the good news is that it is now considered safe for him to sleep on his front if he does rol over, of course the bad bit ( as you have discovered ) is that he cant roll back yet...
tireing i know but soo enough he will figure out how to roll back again
they do sell things to stop babies rolling over but not sure how good they are never tried one
We have the same problem with Phoebe, she can roll from both ways onto her tummy but struggles to get back and gets really upset and frustrated. We have put a towel under the sheet down both sides and it has helped although she can sometimes manage to wiggle down past the towels or even roll on top of them.
