Rolling Over Amp Waking Up HELP

meg - November 22

My dd is 4 months & has always been a fantastic sleeper...12-13 hours straight since she was about 6 weeks old. Well, she has now become quite the master at rolling from her back to her tummy...& she hates being on her tummy (she can roll back over, but normally starts screaming first)!!! Well, she is doing this constantly during the night. She'll roll over & wake up crying. We'll flip her back over & within 90 seconds she's right back on her tummy crying! Any ideas?? My son (who is now 2) didn't sleep until he was about 16 months, so we never had this problem!! :-) Thanks!

 

DDT - November 22

I have been dealing with the same thing but over the last week it has gotten even worse. My ds2 is up so often at night its like I have a newborn on my hands again. He is 5.5 months olds. It takes him a good 30-45 mins to fall asleep because of the constant rolling, and when he finally does fall asleep its on his side. At night he's constantly moving and wakes up every 1-2hrs. It's crazy. He rolls onto his tummy...looks around for about 10 mins and then cries because he won't roll over onto his back again. I remember this same phase happening with ds1 but it wasn't as bad as it is with ds2. I just try to keep in mind that it is a phase and will pa__s when it isn't such a novelty anymore. He has learnt a new thing about his body and is practicing his new skill. I just hope the nightly wakings don't become a habit once rolling over is old news. I am sure you remember the standing/sitting up in the crib phase babies go through when they learn those skills. The memories of that are still fresh with me...I am not looking forward to that haha. My ds1 is 21 months old. The only thing we can do it wait it out and consistently "show" them how to roll over onto their backs themselves.
