Hi, My daughter is just over 4 months old and has started to roll onto her tummy to sleep. I put her to sleep on her back but after a few hours she insists on rolling onto her tummy. Do I need to keep waking her up and insist she still sleeps on her back? She is already sleeping with arms out but in a sleeping bag. I’ve tried to keep her on her back but she just ends up screaming and refusing to go back to sleep unless she is on her tummy.
My nearly 5 month old has started sleeping on her side in the cot. Rolling from back to front began early at about 3 months, however she is unable to roll front to back yet. I have used a sleep suit since she was around 1 month and transitioned to the appropriate arms free one once she started showing signs of rolling. I have also tried a tight top sheet to keep her from rolling. This worked for a night, however she managed to still get to her side the following night. Her cot is next to my bed I am frequently waking to check on her, trying to roll her back to her back if I find her on her side. She usually resists it and often either wakes or fights being put on her back. I give her lots of tummy time during the day and am trying to encourage her to learn the roll back to back skill. How can I keep her on her back the whole night to improve both our sleeps?!
Hi, I have a 5 month old who has become quite good at rolling from his back onto his stomach. I sleep him in Love to Dream sleep bags, however I still find him trapped between the slats of the cot. I watch the video monitor constantly throughout the day but don’t know what to do when we move him to the cot for night sleeping. I know I’m not meant to use bumpers, but is there some sort of alternate for this situation? Short of putting him in the portacot to sleep, I’m not sure what to do.
