Hi My baby is 4 months old and we recently started her sleeping in her crib in a diffrent room! Well our first week was great and its the best longest sleep we have ever had! But now she keeps waking herself up by rolling over! She can roll over both ways but she is rolling over back to belly and gets mad and wont go back to sleep until we roll her back over! We now put the wedge in there with her but she is still able to roll over! Anyone have this problem or have any suggestions! Thanks

I think you should try to let her cry herself back to sleep. I know, i know, 5 minutes of listening to her cry seems like an hour. But, if there is nothing wrong other than the fact that she is on her belly and not her back then i would just try it a couple times. Also, you could have lots of tummy time on the floor during the day so she learns to roll back over by herself. I layed my son on his side for quite some time. You could also try laying her on her belly to sleep and she'd just roll over to her back. When she cries bc she wants to be the opposite direction than she is, sometimes it's good to let her cry and kind of figure it out for herself rather than you doing it for her. good luck...hope you start getting your sleep back. ....p.s. I think that if she is able to roll over the wedge then she'll beable to roll over to her back if she wanted to. My son had the opposite..he could roll from his belly to back and not back to belly at first.

Hi My baby is almost 5 months old and she is doing this same thing.She is rolling every night and sometimes takes me 1 hour to put her back to sleep.She is not crying,she looks happy to me so I am not worry.Also she is doing this rolling routine during her naps:)I guess this is part of her growing and I cant do anything about that.We need to just be patience and soon they will stop just to discover something new:)Believe me this is not a problem , she is just growing.Sorry for my language, I am Polish and I am still learning English Justyna

Ah this is tough - My son has been doing the same thing. We swaddle him and that seems to help but sometimes he gets out of it then rolls over. It's hard to know what else to try - a few times he has just stayed asleep on his belly and sometimes he doesn't roll over at all.

Our ped told us to put our son to sleep on his tummy for the same reason. He said the risk of SIDS has dramatically decreased at this point, and he would roll over anyway. We started putting him to sleep on his tummy and now he's fine. We now put him to sleep on his side because that seems to be his preference right now.

we had the same problem with our daughter, she was a great sleeper then started waking up crying because she had rolled on her tummy, I tried the wedges too but she would roll in them, so I put the wedge right up against the crib rail...she only liked to rollone way for a while, so thid would block her and she seemed to sleep better. it took about 2-3 weeks befor she could roll back to her back or just stay sleeping on her tummy, so you may just have to wait it out. Good luck!
