uncomfortable sleeping

I don't know if this started with Finn's cold but he's stopped sleeping/napping in his cot and in fact any where, including buggy.

But the real problem is we're up every hour of the night as he's not wanting to sleep on his back or side, instead he's flipping onto his tummy. That in itself doesn't bother me but he seems to get really upset and then lift himself up really high on his arms.

Has anyone had experience of this? I've just ordered a thing to keep him on his back, but he's obviously not comfortable on it on his back...

Hi Sarah

I'd just let him flip onto his front. Although I think the 'ideal' is to 'sleep on back/play on front', once they can roll, they can do what they like at night in their cot really! And maybe he's just getting used to waking up on his tummy and will soon realise all he has to do roll the other way, rather than raise up on his arms and get upset?

Reflux babies also find tummy sleeping more comfortable. Don't know why, forgot to ask. Our consultant said that generally babies prefer to sleep on their tummy but particularly reflux babies.

Baby bubble sleeps on her front 99% of the time now - and quite often upside down in her cot (sometimes I wish I had a camera monitor!).

I agree with J - perhaps he's just getting frustrated about not being able to get back. Is he in a 'big' cot ie does he have enough room to roll about and get comfortable himself?

My dd can't really roll from her back onto her front by herself yet but likes to sleep on her front (and sleeps better that way) so i just put her in on her front. She can however, roll the other way so i often find her on her back when i check on her :snigger:
I dont get what you mean about lifting himself up onto his arms - do you mean he doesn't want to be on his tummy either? That's a tricky one then!

You must be exhausted hun :sadface:

Thanks girls. The problem is he's used to sleeping on his tummy and that would be fine but instead what he's doing is trying to push himself upright all the time and crying. ?(
