My little one keeps rolling onto her front just before she goes to sleep. She is nearly 7 months. We keep flipping her over but it wakes her. Last night we rolled her back 3 times before bed and we woke up, she was back on her front again.
Should we keep rolling her back over or just let her sleep on her front?
My nearly 7 month old does this too! I leave her to it... Sometimes she wakes up and has a wee cry because she is stuck so I go and flip her, but before I can even get back to bed she is on her side! Its fine, they can move their heads and will do if they need to!
Assuming the sleeping space is safe, no pillows or soft toys she could get her face into, I would leave her be. Mine started to turn about 8 months and I never turned her back. Ideally, they say you should put then down on their back and let them turn over on their own, but once she started to turn herself, she would wake and get upset if I put her down on her back while she was trying to turn. From then I just put her on her front as I knew the space was safe and she could move and turn over if she needed to. She's slept on her front since then and she's 4 now.
I try to turn them the first couple of times when they're newborns (all of mine were rolling at birth - I think there's something weird going on inside my uterus), but after that, I let it go and use a movement monitor to ease my anxiety.
Mine are 8 weeks and will only sleep on their front. They've got terrible reflux and are on all sorts of medications, it's the only way they'll settle. I was worried at first but they've got great head control so I just let them sleep how they're comfortable. They will scream if laid on their backs
Mine started turning from back to tummy at five months. She would wake up on her tummy and cry because she couldn't turn back. It was hell until she learned to flip back. Now she's eight months and sleeps on her tummy with her butt up in the air. She's also a "hider" and will burrow her face between the mattress and the bumper. Terrified me until ped said that they're prettt much safe once they can freely turn.
