DS learned to roll from back to tummy.
He used to do the opposite but can't anymore.
whenever he's put down he rolls.
then he can't hold his head up
he's forgotten how to sleep on his tummy.
then he screams he's tired
if we roll him over he rolls back within a minute.

Frustrating isn't it?
My dd rolled from her tummy to back at age 1 month, but then stopped. Now she can roll both ways, but prefers to roll from back to tummy & then she tries to crawl, but all she manages to do is vomit! I put her in the electric swing with some toys after she's been on the floor for a while so she can have some awake/play time without the 'stress' of being on the floor. I remember my ds was similar. It lasted a few weeks at most and then he realised he could roll both ways when he wanted.

Subscribing because DS has just started to roll and I've been worried about him rolling in his sleep too.
I checked with Google and I found a few sites (including the SIDS site) that say if you put bub in a sleeping bag they find it harder to roll. Also maybe try those sleeping wedges so that he can't roll when it's bedtime / naptime?

Very normal, and it will go on for a few weeks, it probably isn't the case the he forgot how to sleep on his tummy but that he wants to practice his new moves and can't quite get the full roll. Maybe do some extra tummy time during the day and I'f you are really worried then a wedge will help

DD has been rolling tummy to back since about 9 weeks, but seemed to forget how after figuring out back to tummy. She rolls onto her tummy then starts whinging (and burping and spewing, lol). I let her whinge for a few minutes or distract her with toys so that she gets some tummy time, and hopefully figures out how to roll back. She's getting there! She really wants to crawl now though.
It seems they go through these development phases with a bit of frustration. They just want to do it but it's hard for them.

DS hated tummy time so he was buggered when he learned to roll from back to front, and it was like an automatic response the second I put him down..he's automatically flip over. He'd whinge and whine and cry ( and burp and spew too..lol) but it didn't take long for him to get used to it. I know it's frustrating.. so much so that I used to get his sleeping wedge and put him in it on the floor.. ANYTHING to stop him from rolling as whinging. He'll get better in time, and it doesnt take long for them to get the strength in their arms and neck to be able to hold themselves up for short periods of time.. and soon, he will beging to enjoy his new perspective on the world. Unti then.. unfortunately it's just putting up with the whinging.. sorry
BTW.. how is he doing otherwise?? HAs there been any improvement in his sleeping?

Actually he's quite cute when he rolls over, he has so much fun the doesn't want to lay on his back. He'll cry if we try to wedge him on his back.
A couple of weeks ago there was a day where we were out until 12. DS wasn't tired, and when we got home he slept in one lot til 7 or 8am. The day after it was the same.
Then since those 2 days he's gone backwards, and now wakes every 2nd hour
