    I had a similar experience with my baby. He started rolling back to belly around 3.5 months and would roll onto his belly in his crib at night. Sometimes he would fuss or cry so I would nurse him back to sleep and this would happen a few times a night. Other times he would roll and go straight back to sleep but I personally wasn’t comfortable leaving him on his belly at that time so I would roll him over even though this would sometimes wake up him up. When he was 4.5 months old he started rolling belly to back so even though he didn’t do it often I started leaving him for longer periods of time (1 to 2 hrs) during the night. Then at 5 months I decided to try co-sleeping to see if it would help the frequent night wakings and it did. I slept better and the baby did too because I think he wasn’t searching for me as much. Co-sleeping has its risks and isn’t for everyone. A rolling baby and tired mama isn’t a great recipe. He’s 6 months now and I bring him to the bed after the 2nd or 3rd time of the night when he wakes up, which is between 3:30 and 5:30 am. Maybe one day he’ll sleep through the night or wake up less and I may adjust the co-sleeping, but for now it helps me get more sleep.

    Yes, I went to flip her when she got stuck, poor thing. This too shall pass – This phase lasted a couple of weeks at most for us.

    A weighted blanket helps keep them from rolling

    My baby learned how to roll at 4 months and can do back to belly, but not belly to back. This results in my baby rolling from back to belly during sleep then waking up in a fuss.

    My baby went from having no problem taking naps and sleeping through the entire night to waking up every few hours and it’s been really hard on me.

    We do lots of tummy time during the day and we practice rolling from belly to back.

    When my baby wakes up in the night, she whines and fusses and I have to nurse her back to sleep. In the day, I try to leave her but I just can’t. It’s so hard for me to not go pick her up. Should I just leave her? Sometimes I leave her, but when whines turn into cries, I go to check on her. I don’t want her to have poor attachment, but I also need her to take longer naps.

    Has anyone experienced a similar problem? If so, what helped?
