My baby keeps rolling while she sleeps!

My baby is 7 mos and she started rolling onto her belly and it's really freaking me out! What did you use to stop your baby from rolling? Should I just go in and try to roll her back?

If she's learned how to roll back over onto her back, you don't need to worry. She's probably more comfortable like that and trying to roll her back yourself will just wake her up, never wake a sleeping baby!! 1 Like

I used a merlin suit for my son, at least until he learned how to roll back over. That thing is like magic! 1 Like

pretty normal at that age. you shouldn't have anything else in the crib with her and she should be fine 1 Like

If she’s rolling on her own, it’s better to just let her be. She’s learning how to get herself comfortable and rolling over is a developmental mile stone. 1 Like

Your baby will roll back to a comfortable position when ready, just make sure you don’t have anything in the crib. 1 Like

Talk to your pediatrician. If dr thinks your baby isnt ready to be on tummy, try the sleep sacks, like halo. They were a lifesaver. And keep your crib empty of stuff for safety. 0 Likes

Has your baby been doing tummy time.. then it’s normal for baby to b awake in that position..Tummy time is important for (head neck movement muscle dev...needed later for crawling. Get a donut pillow and put her on her belly.. then put a toy in a position to.. allow her to roll to her back.. assuming tummy time has been done and baby has mastery already 0 Likes

“As baby gets older and begins to enjoy his “workout,” gradually ramp up the number and duration of tummy time sessions. Aim for around 20 to 30 minutes a day of baby tummy time by the time he is 3 or 4 months old. Then keep the practice up until baby can roll over on his own, a feat many babies accomplish around 6 or 7 months of age.” The Bump 0 Likes
