Oh.My.God. Sleep has gone to hell in a hand basket in our house lately. Baby was sleeping 11 or 12 hours straight through, and it was SO wonderful. However, the last week or so he's decided that he needs to roll over immediately after we lay him down. The problem with that is, he doesn't know how to roll from his tummy to his back. So, he gets stuck on his tummy. He'll last for a little bit, then start to panic and cry since he can't get back over. He's not a tummy sleeper at all. Matter of fact, it seems like he doesn't realize he can lay his head down and rest it when he's on his tummy. Anyway, I've tried to go in a roll him back over (repeatedly) and he just rolls right back over onto his tummy again. We let him cry for a while the other night just to see what would happen, and he eventually wore himself out and fell asleep on his tummy for about 45 minutes, then woke up in a panic again. Last night I had to rock him to sleep (which took forever) and sneak him back into the crib, only to have him wake up rolling over at 5:30 this morning. We're exhausted after almost a week of this.
I don't know what to do for him. The sleepsuit doesn't keep him from rolling anymore, and there doesn't seem to be any way to safely keep him on his back with anything else. I'm giving him tons of floor time during the day so he can practice rolling around and all that jazz. I'm at a loss. Has anyone been through this? What did you do?
