Help! Mt 5 day old newborn can roll on to her side in the bassinet? I've spent all night trying to stop her. Are swaddling and sleep suits still safe ?

Red Nose Education

Most babies do not roll intentionally before 3 months, however some babies do roll, especially to the side, at a very early age.
Often these babies do not respond well to wrapping/swaddling & prefer to have their arms free.
Wrapping her with arms out may be helpful..
You could use a muslin wrap with arms out - as per “modifying wrap - 3-6mth old” in the link below.

Always place baby on the back for sleep.

Red Nose does not recommend the use of sleep positioners.
Red Nose does not recommend positional products such as anti-roll devices and items that fasten a baby into a sleeping position.
Products that restrict the movement of a baby or a baby’s head should not be used.
