    If you're worried about her rolling and my being able to breathe- don't! 6 months is a great age- they're very strong already and she will be able to lift up her head and readjust as much as she wants.
    I do think perhaps that you may have changed too many things at once with the cot and the swaddle (is there one arm free?) but I like to make changes cautiously. I had dd sleeping in her cot for day naps a good month before nights, and then the transitional swaddle came another 6 or so weeks after that.
    Having said all that though, my dd is a terrible sleeper, so maybe I am doing it all wrong haha!

    I was stressed about this last week! My DD started rolling and as soon as she did, she started sleeping on her belly.

    So far so good, she is actually sleeping better!

    Some lovely ladies on here suggested buying a breathing monitor, maybe do that if you're worried?

    Yeah she has got one arm free.

    I should have been more specific, she has had a few day sleeps in the cot, tonight being her first night..

    This was me lastnight and one night last week.

    My DD is 6 months too she sleeps in her cot in her bedroom during the day and still in her bassinet next to my bed at night time. Lastnight she went down early and I put her in her cot and I knew she was going to sleep right through. After a little while she ended up rolling on her tummy. I ended up accidently on purpose waking her up and putting her in her bassinet next to me.

    I'm quite nervous about her sleeping the night in her cot. During the day I have watched her on the monitor and she moves her head from side to side and moves about in her sleep.

    I don't think their arms are meant to be restricted when they are rolling? I would feel more comfortable with both arms free particularly if there may be an issue with head control (flat spot thread). Hope she slept well!
