My son used to sleep through the night, now he wakes up numerous times and I am sleep deprived... he's waking himself up by rolling from his side (how he sleeps now) to his back and wakes up EVERY time. Help please... I need it!!

thank y'all very much... the sleep positioners were all recalled, I've looked everywhere for them, but thank you! I will try swaddling him... couldn't hurt to try.

depending on his age maybe a nice tight swaddle will help??
My baby daughter does it and we wrap her nice and tight and prop her on her side

This is just a phase of development. There is really nothing that you can do about it. He will eventually get over this stage. My son used to stand up in the middle of the night at least a few times and he would start screaming because he couldn't figure out how to sit back down. Its just part of being a parent.Please do not use a sleep positioner or blankets or other soft items in his crib at night.Here is a website that gives you some good info about why they are so unsafe!

depending on how old he is you could try propping him on his side a little bit with a pillow or blanket (not recomended for babies that still don't have great movement control as it could be a choking hazard) I know that you can also buy the sleep positioners at toys r us and places but I believe those are only for sleeping on their back but there is no harm in looking for one. You could also try letting him cry for a bit when he wakes up to try and get him to put himself back to sleep.
