    Default Anyone Else Have a Busy Sleeper...?

    My DD (nearly 6 months) is all over the cot! I swear she is one busy babe when she is snoozing!

    Every morning, after nap etc she is all over the place - upside down, sideways, backwards - lucky she sleeps in a Grobag or I'm sure the blankets would be everywhere!

    Gone are the days when I would leave her in her little basket and she would be in exactly the same position where I left her.

    Is anyone else's babes the same? I'm not concerned, it doesn't disrupt her sleep (only when she rolls on her tummy because she hates is and wakes herself up). Its always an interesting suprise every time i check in to see where about she is this time.

    Yep, our DS is just like that in his cot. He sleeps in a grobag too.

    I do wonder how he'll go when he starts sleeping in a normal bed!

    DS has always been like that. Now at 2, i can constantly hear him banging into the side of his cot, which is what makes me apprehensive to move him to a normal bed, i'd be scared he'd whack the rail off and fall out

    Op you described my DS perfectly. I tuck him in at night and when I check on him he is on top of his blanket facing the other way. Sometimes he sleeps on his tummy sometimes on his side. I had to get the airwrap when he was pretty little because he would move in his sleep and get his limbs stuck between the cot bars then wake up and cry

    Yep!!!

    DD is in a grow bag and blankets and some mornings she wakes up and she's on her tummy and her head is where her feet are meant to be!

    It wouldn't matter if she didn't mind being on her tummy but she wakes up crying hysterically.

    Is there any way of stopping this? Does any one have any tips?

    Hi, my DD is 6 mths and also in a grobag. I use the little wedges to stop her rolling and it also stops her moving all over the place.

    Hi plod, does she feel restricted in it? Or can she still move around and get comfortable? Any chance you can PM me the brand and type of wedges you use? I bought some but they are pretty lightweight and she still manages to move around.

    Has anyone tried the safe-t sleep? It's meant to also hold them in place but I worry that it will stop DD from moving a little bit still to find a comfortable spot and also it will be disruptive to open it up and use it in the middle of the night when she gets up for feeds, especially if it has Velcro on it.

    I don't think she feels restricted, they are lightweight so she manages to wriggle around in the cot a little bit but can't roll over. They are early years brand I think, I'll have a look once bub wakes up. I'm about to start transitioning her out of her wrap (arms up wrap) so I'm not sure if I'll keep the wedges or take them out...

    My ds was a still sleeper, but my dd is a real wriggler. I just let her do her thing in bed. If she moved around it's fine. I don't think it's a SIDS risk, but I think putting her in something that stops her moving could be a risk. She was actually in a Woombie (a stretchie one) until 8.5 months and could get all over her cot in it and even sit up in it! Once she was close to standing I transitioned her out of it and into sleeping bags.

    I love watching my dd on the video monitor and I can see her wriggle around, eventhough she's sound asleep.
