My DD has started rolling over, she's just getting the hang of being able to pull her arm out but at night she rolls over and gets her arm stuck so it flops between the cot bars. She's lifting her head ok sbut I must say I find it worrying in case she suffocates while sleeping! Am I just being an anxious mum!?
I'm sure she'll be fine. My ds2 will only sleep if his arm is through the bars, but he is a bit odd Now that she has better control, it is probably unlikely that she will suffocate, I think the danger is if you lay a very young baby on their front when they have no control at all iyswim.
Both dd and ds slept like this at your dd's age. Yes, I worried too, but I remember mentioning it to my hv, who was v relaxed about it - she just it was fine as long as no other SIDS risk factors eg smoking/over-heating.
My baby keeps rolling onto his front. What should I do? If your baby is less than six months old and you find him sleeping on his tummy, gently turn him onto his back. Dont feel you need to keep getting up all night to check on this. Whatever your babys age, always place him to sleep on his back.
