sleep positioners- or suggestions for babies who are used to sleeping inclined

My 10 week old twin boys are pretty bit spit-uppers. They were horrible after they were born. They spent the first 4 weeks sleeping semi-inclined in their bouncy chairs. They spitting has tapered off a bit, but I'm still not comfortable putting them down completely flat after they eat.

Right now one of my twins is sleeping in a swing because he wants to be elevated a bit and will only sleep a fitfull hour or so flat on his back because he startles himself. If I swaddle him- he breaks out of it.

My other twin is sleeping on a fairly flat boppy so he's a bit elevated (he's the big spiiter/strange breather).

I bought a sleep positioner today that said I could incline the back a bit, but it's horrible. it sits high off the ground and their heads rolled off of them!!!

Does anyone have a suggestion for a decent sleep positioner, or a way I can 1) get my kid out of the swing and into his crib and 2) what I can do since I'm so worried about them choking?

Thanks!

http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=4631162   I just got this one yesterday.   Last night I had to take the positioner part off so my daughter would sleep.  It fits side to side in the bassinette so I dont have to worry about her falling off.   She slept good on it once I took the sides off.   She didnt spit up last night either, I dont know if it is from that or the switch of her formula.   Good luck.  I also plan on getting this one for when I transition her to the crib.    http://www.target.com/Folding-Crib-Wedge/dp/B0009JB38U/qid=1231960456/ref=br_1_10/602-3485718-9591041?ie=UTF8&node=273951011&frombrowse=1&pricerange=&index=tgt-mf-mv&field-browse=273951011&rank=pmrank&rh=&page=4

I am not sure what you would have found by this time, but for my son's crib I used the Safe Lift Deluxe Crib Wedge. You can find it online at BabiesRUs. The item # is 158704 or you can enter "crib wedge" under the search option. What I liked about this was it gives your infant use of the entire crib. I used it to transition my son from his bassinet where he was used to sleeping elevated on an infant positioner, to his crib. I felt that it fit securely under his sheet and he enjoyed the moderate lift it provides. I also enjoyed its affordability ($14.99). Hope this helps!
