please can someone help me with a problem - how do you stop a baby rolling in their sleep? They dont' like being on their tummy and cant roll back over yet? am up 6/7 times a night turning a 6 month old crying baby onto his back. am knackered! anyone tried a sleep positioner? any good? would it be wrong to clingfilm him to his mattress?!! (kidding)wink

sounds like you need some sort of square pyjamas smile

I bought some hollow tube things that joined at the bottom with a flat sheet. The babu lay in between the tubes with the tubes under its armpits so there was no chance of any accidents. They were designed for this problem (or allowing a baby to sleep on it's side).

I am really sorry but i have absolutely no idea what they are called or where I got them from and I have since given them away. I hope you have some luck tracking them down.

i might have seen those in the jojomamanbebe catalogue (not the square pyjamas the thing charliemama describes)

I found them

here (I hope that link worked)

They are called Baby sleeping bolsters

But I don't remember paying that much!!!!!!

There is one in the JoJoMamanBebe catalogue which says from birth, doesn't give an upper limit. £15, catalogue no. A6809, called a Sleep Positioner. Have a look on their website at or phone them on 0871 423 5657

Does your DS sleep in a Grobag? If so, you can tuck the Grobag under the mattress at the bottom - he will be tethered and unable to roll but still be able to move a fair bit. If he is still in the 0-6mths size, move him up to the next one so there is plenty to tuck in. We did this with DD1 for a few months until she was competent at moving around and didn't get stuck in odd positions.

Am now doing the same with DD2.
