    My DD sleeps a lot on her side atm. She does not have reflux as far as I know bit she is spewy and prefers it.

    If you want to try side sleeping you can get sleep wedges that can stop rolling on tummy until he rolls on his own.
    Yeah he lifts right up and can turn head side to side. But yes will try a support pillow of some sort I was using my BFing cushion last night.

    Ds was a reflux /spewy baby so we always had his cot elevated at one end and we put him on his side to sleep. Sometimes we used something similar to the wedge @gingermillie has. He slept much better on side than his back. He's now 10 mths and still loves to curl up on his side to sleep

    I'm not a SIDS expert but I had a wedge for DD2 and I was told by the nurse they were incredibly dangerous and to not use it. So I got rid of mine. It was a little different to this one.

    I'm the same as mamasupial. All on tummies for all sleeps by 3 months old.

    Just did a quick Google and sleep positioners are banned in the US as they've been linked to suffocation.

    have a good look into them before you buy one.

    Dd.had pretty severe reflux and was upset or.vomitty in most positions. We had the head of the basinette elevated but she purposely would wriggle to the bottom often. Paed advised positioning her on her side in a sleep positioner but it just upset her so much she would never go to sleep instead just cry till put on her back so had to persist with sleeping elevated on back. All day naps till 4-5 months were in bouncer elevated with it on vibrate or in her swing. She vomited constantly till probably 10 months, cloth nappies and towels were always under her head flat in bassinet, for, car seat, bouncer and swing.

    You are right they are not considered sids safe but neither is tilting the cot up, side or tummy sleeping or bed sharing. You can get a breathing monitor which clips to the nappy (snuza hero) we had one of those for a bit of piece of mind it sets off vibration to wake them if they don't breathe for 15 seconds and if they still don't breathe for 5 seconds an alarm sounds.

    We tilted the cot (boards under 1 end rather than just lifting the mattress) for both dd and ds and it helped until they started rolling. They then rolled themselves over and happily slept on tummies - dd is still a tummy sleeper at 4

    Of course you're completely right about that. It's all about the risk assessment we do as parents. I quite happily let mine sleep on their tummies but felt uncomfortable using a wedge.

    SIDS and reflux is not an easy combination to negotiate.

    I bought one yesterday and it was a hit! Only used it for early morning (after about 2am) when he is in bed with me but it was an instant hit. I actually feel safer with him on that than just beside me in bed, it's like a little safety barrier. He slept more deeply than he ever has after midnight, in 1-1.5 hour lots which is waaaaay better than 20 minute unsettled upright naps.
    Also started Losec yesterday so maybe that's kicking in also. He took ages to get down but then slept in bassinet until midnight (so maybe 4 hours?!) it might be a once off/coincidence but I am feeling very positive 😊😊😊
