I am slowly being driven insane from broken sleep.
DS2 has spent the last two or three weeks waking up A MILLION TIMES A NIGHT (approximately) because he rolls over onto his stomach and gets stuck. He is perfectly capable of rolling onto his back; he does it when he's awake no problem. But not at night. No, at night he gets stuck like a little beached whale and apparently, to him, if he's on his tummy, it's time to play.
He's also gone from a solid 12hr+ stretch to waking up in the early hours to have a chat. An hour long chat. A very LOUD hour long chat that's mostly high pitched screeches. WTF, kid, it's 4AM!
Sleep regression is a rude shock.
There's no point to this post. This too shall pass. DS1 did the same thing.
But I feel sorry for myself and felt the urge to share.

I sympathise! DS does the same!! How old is your DS?
At least DS has never slept 12 hours so I'm used to the waking but would be nice if he would just be happy on his tummy.

I knew it wouldn't last but now that the sleep regression is here, IT SUCKS BALLS.
Eventually he'll figure out that he can just put his head down and continue sleeping but he's taking his sweet time coming to that realisation.

My nearly 5 month old doesn't roll in bed probably because I double wrap her lol but she has been waking a few times a night recently also. Ahh she also slept through 12 hours from 10 weeks id almost wish she was like my first - who didn't sleep through until 7 months. I'm more sleep deprived from the recent wakings then from having a newbie lol

Have you tried tucking them in firmly so they can't roll? Plus you can get this thing called a "safety Y sleep" which straps to the bed/mattress so they can't roll over.

DS did this when he was 5 months too I also started a thread because I was so shocked! Who was this baby that slept so well and now won't sleep?!
Anyway it lasted about a month and he has been a tummy sleeper ever since.

He doesn't even like cuddles for too long, protests so we put him on the floor where he can have his freedom! I've learned not to take it personally :P

My DS hit every sleep regression there is. The 4 month was the rudest shock.
It is developmental
It's not your fault
It will pass
Don't fight it or try anything drastic to control it, you will only do your own head in. Ride it out as best you can and accept that it is happening.
This is the best info on the net about sleep regressions;
Hugs! It effing sucks.
