    Default Waking himself up- Advice please

    DS is 10 months and quite a wriggler in his sleep. He would sleep thru except he wriggles to the end of the bed and bangs his head into his cot waking him up most nights.

    Should I use a bumper or pillow? I'm not sure what to do and we're both exhausted.

    There is a mesh bumper you can get which is safe but I'm not sure if it would cushion you little ones head.

    Good luck, I know what the sleep depravation is like, I hope you find a solution soon. X

    Yea I think it's called an air wrap - I have it. DS still ued to wriggle untill he got himself stuck in a corner and would cry out to be repositioned but atleast he wasn't hitting his head on wood! They pass that stage....eventually.

    My ds is 10 months old and does the same. A bumper for us sorted the problem. Goodluck

    We started using a bumper at about 1 year old for the same reason.

    Mmmm I can't remember EXACTLY but I don't really remember getting up to reposition him after the 8 month mark. Obviously a bit different to OP, but that's just because bubs master their own movement at different ages.
