Baby learning toutcomes roll over

posted 7 years 3 months ago
Hey mums and dads I'm new here, and a first time mum
Thought I'd join since I have a few questions but my main one is my little one is 3 months and is learning to roll over on to his tummy... he allows us to sleep through the night but I wake up to find his head so far back and twisted lying on his side, kind of. I'm scared he will hurt him self.. am I right to worry? If so how can I help him because there's no stopping this determined strong man

Close observation is needed or you can consult a Pediatrician about it to lessen your worries.

Rolling is a natural progression of movement for a baby. It is not advisable to put any form of bumper in the cot as they can cause further problems. If your baby is comfortable and sleeping happily do not worry.

Last thing at night when you go to bed you can gently move him without waking him up and do not worry if he appears uncomfortable or you feel he is trapped as he will cry. Look at Rolling and other useful information on the babyconfused website an informative baby development website.

Hi there. So long as baby's cot is not full of bedding or toys, rolling on to his side or his front shouldn't be a worry. I wouldn't be too concerned if he manages to roll right on to his front. Baby's used to sleep on their fronts and, although this is no longer advised as common practise, some parents are advised to sleep their babies on their tummies to help with symptoms of reflux. So if your baby rolls on to his side or manages to roll completely on to his front he'll be fine provided there are no obstructions in the cot that could get close to his airways. Great to hear he's making his developmental milestones - so wonderful!

Hi there!
Its great news at that your baby at age of 3 months is rolling around, but there is nothing much to worry. Even my baby use to sleep on her tummy the whole night, they will be fine as days goes on.
