    Default Baby thrashing in her sleep

    Our 5 month old is a very active sleeper, she thrashes around in her sleep sometimes to the point of waking herself.

    She hates being swaddled and will scream the house down if she cant get her arms out so we cant do that.
    She's not hungry because she's on an automatic feed pump with a nasal-gastric tube.
    We cant let her keep thrashing around because she's oxygen dependant with prongs up her nose and she keeps pulling them out even in her sleep.

    So we are getting no sleep because she's either rattling around in her cot so much or she wakes herself up or we have to keep checking she still has her nasal prongs in

    Help!!

    When my DS first started rolling we used a large muslin as a cot sheet and tucked it in really tight down the sides to kind of pin him down. Would that work?
