My 9mo gets stuck in cot and night!

My son is 9months old and since now he has been in a sleep bag because he constantly wriggles in his sleep, gets stuck in the bars, wacks his head and gets stuck in silly positions! I took him out of it last night because he is outgrowing it and i dont want him staying in a grobag all his life. Last night he was up every hour crying because he was stuck/cold/wacked head, he then woke up at 3am - 5am wide awake crawling in his cot. Does anybody have any tips too keep him still through the night please as im 7 1/2 months pregnant and really need my sleep. Thank you in advance xx

My son kept getting his legs stuck in the bars on his crib to because he likes to sleep jammed up against them, so we bought breathable bumpers. They are made of mesh so he can still breath but also has some padding so he doesn't hurt himself.

My son has also woken up that early a few times and I've noticed if I just keep him in the crib and don't go in his room he well fall back asleep. If I go in though it just riles him up so he won't sleep. Now if he starts to cry and it sounds like he needs me I'll check on him.

I hope this helps and that you can figure something out to get more sleep.
