K is a master at rolling. So much, in fact, that she rolls in the middle of the night and then wakes herself up so much that she can't go back to sleep without swaddling her back up. If I go into her in the middle of the night, she screams. I have always thought that it's because she thinks she's going to get food and then doesn't but now writing this out, I'm not quite sure if that's it or not. I just may be the last person she wants to see when she's woken herself up.
However the case, Mike lovingly jumps out of bed and is willing to swaddle her back up. She does the same thing for naps too. If we leave her arms out of a swaddle for naps, she'll roll and play in her crib until she's either so tired and frustrated that she cries or until I go in to get her out of her crib.
Even being swaddled, she'll frequently pull her arms out of the swaddle and then roll. This morning her arm was actually out of her long sleeve sticking out of the top of her shirt where her neck goes. I guess she really wanted her arm out of her swaddle.
But it's getting ridiculous. This is almost worse than having to get up to put a pacifier back in her mouth. I'm so glad we're over the pacifier. I try just letting her cry it out but she gets so frustrated that I can't let her do it ... especially not in the middle of the night when everyone's trying to sleep.
So I need a solution.
I've read that there are wedges you can buy to keep them from rolling but ideally, I'd prefer her to just learn to sleep on her stomach.
So far I've read that other moms just let the baby cry it out and after a week, it works but they also mention that their babies don't cry for more than 15 minutes or so. K's known to cry for over an hour and a half, especially if we go into her room to try to calm her down during any time that she's crying. Not sure why that is.
So please, any suggestions would be appreciated!
