My DS has started to roll over at 13 weeks. I'm a little concerned he'll do it in his sleep. What can anyone recommend?
Also is 13 weeks too early for this to be happening?

My DS was rolling at 11 weeks ( I think back to front ) and then by 4 months he was rolling front to back . Maybe it was the other way around , not sure now . He never rolled in his sleep until he was 6 months old . Do you swaddle ? That’s the only concern with rolling really .

Dd2 was rolling very early, I think by about 8 weeks (she's missing her left hand which made it easier) She always rolled over as soon as you put her down because she preferred to sleep on her front, and there wasn't much I could do.

My LO started to roll around that time and was sitting up just before 20 weeks.

I worried about the rolling over in his sleep but ultimately there was bigger all I could do about it - if I flip him on to his back, it’s like he’s spring loaded to throw himself back on to his front!

He can roll both ways in his sleep now and it’s fine. I do have a breathing monitor that helped me with nerves.

I also woke up every hour or so and checked him - he’s in a next to me so it was no biggy

@Eggcellent29 I didn't even think of a breathing monitor! Thank you!

We tried swaddling him but because we didn't do it from birth he really doesn't like it.

Thank you all for your replies 😀

@Mumofaginge mine never took to swaddling either ! Even
The midwives at the hospital couldn’t convince him !!! 🤷‍♀️
