We've learnt to roll!

DS has just discovered he can roll over and will do so at every opportunity!! He doesn't quite know what to do when he gets there, but he's clearly very proud of himself. Anyway, he now does it everytime I put him down to sleep and ends up falling asleep on his belly. He's only 5 months and it worries the life out of me letting him sleep on his belly with all the guidance that they are supposed to be on their packs. I keep rolling him over, but that often wakes him (getting him to sleep is hard enough), or he rolls straight back everytime. Do I leave him to sleep that way?????

Any advice/experience gratefully received!! x

I think most of us have this dilemma. i know I did and had to seek some reassurance. I learned on here and from my HV that if they roll over themselves it is ok. I know we are taught not to lay them down to sleep on their tummies and this is still the case but if they do it themselves it's different.

Like you I worried and would get up several times a night and roll A back again, much to her annoyance alot of the time! :snigger:

On a positive note, it is lovely to see them do new things isn't it,xxxx lurve

Evening. I think the general thought is that if they can do it by themselves, leave them. You could always check with your HV if you're worried? Won't be long before he's rolling about all the over the place and before you blink, he'll be crawling!

Debi, I had the same worry with Emilia at just over 5months and she constantly slept on her tummy from that point onwards. The HV told me the same, being that if they can roll, they are able to move their heads to they can breathe. Oscar is now doing the same. It worried me at first but I am now slightly more relaxed about it, plus they both seem to sleep far better on their tummies, so if they are happier that slightly offsets my worrying too. Think I am a bit more relaxed because we have breathing monitors in their cots, so I know they will go off if anything happens - maybe worth getting one of those to give you peace of mind.
