ds is 7 months old. around 4 or 5 months he started sleeping through the night. it only last for about a month and a half though. and since then, its been off an on. one week, he'll sleep the entire night, every night. the next week, he's waking up 4 times a night, every night. and when he wakes up he just wants me to put his pacifier back in his mouth and roll him back over to his back...even though he can do it himself. i dont know what to do. and i dont know why in the world his schedule is so weird. its so frustrating. :( i think he's starting to figure things out, and then he proves me wrong.

My daughter was the type to wake up screaming if she had rolled onto her tummy in the middle of the night. She could roll over all on her own, but for some reason she just couldn't in the middle of the night. I just considered it "sleepy brain" and she'd forget how or something.

I bought pool doodles from walmart. I hot-glued them to her crib mattress, then put a sheet over it. They were parallel, just wide enough apart for her to lay between them. Once between them, she couldn't roll over. So she'd be kept on her back the entire night. It worked wonders. I used a low-heat hot-glue, so it didn't melt the plastic of the mattress. At about a year old, I pulled them off and put them on the edge of the mattress, against the bars, to prevent her from smashing her head/face against the bars.

It worked great for us! It helped her sleep in the position she liked best, which lead to her sleeping through the night. Which meant more sleep for me!
