Is there anything I can do to avoid having to go into ds2's room and resettling him every time he lands on his tummy?
Is it too late/too dangerous to use a sleep positioner now that he is 8 months and can roll?

I dont think it's too dangerous, but it may be too late. My DS is 5.5 months and he is rolling right over the top of his positoner. Not sure what else you could do to stop him rolling though, sorry.

Have a look at the SIDS website for clarification, but my understanding is that you place a child on their back for sleep and if they roll onto their tummy whilst asleep it's not an issue in terms of SIDS risk. But if bubs rolls than wakes up & gets grumpy about being there (which is what you're saying OP is that right?) then I suppose you'll just have to keep going in until bubs learns to roll over from front to back (or can he do that already?). Make sure he's not wrapped tightly so he can use his arms to roll as needed.
A sleep positioner is not recommended by SIDS and I doubt it would make much difference to an active 8 month old anyway. It would probably just be rolled over, making it even harder to roll back. I wouldn't bother.
