    Default Rolling over keeps waking her up.

    Hi everyone,

    I needed some more advice, My dd is now sleeping on her mattress on the floor until i go to bed. She has been sleeping great with this new way we have been doing it and now goes a couple of hours at a time... but the last couple of days she has been moving.. pushing herself along the floor.. its great

    But i have noticed the last 2 nights that she rolls over too and it keeps waking her up. I used to use the swaddle me thing just around her legs and that didnt do anything, i have just started taking that off but its not doing anything still.

    I know its all so new for her and it must be a little scary waking up while her little body is rolling over. I was wondering if there was anything anyone used to help their baby to get used to this or to help keep them asleep after they did this or just kept them in one place?

    Just looking for ideas please. Did your baby do this too?

    Thanks,

    How old is your baby? I would roll blankets on either side so that they couldn't. Most times they end up straddling it with one leg and sleeping that way.

    Yup. I just place them a little low, so they're even with their armpits. They're strong enough to roll, they're strong enough to fix themselves if they need to.
