Help! My ds (6mos) is rolling all over the place- front to back and back to front. It is adorable when he is excited about it, but it seems like he can't stop himself, and then he get really upset and frustrated. It is disrupting his naps bigtime, and then as a result of his being overtired I have a hard time getting him down at night. Any thoughts, or ideas, or just tell me it will pass!!!

My DD was like that too when she first learned to roll. It was like she couldn't stop! It mellowed out pretty quickly as she moved on to learning new things. Now that she has been working on crawling, I wake up with her next to me on all fours "practicing" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

As soon as my dd figured the rolling thing out she practiced ALL the time too! But after only a week or so she's calmed down and can nap & sleep again <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Aaron did that when he first learned to roll to his tummy. He'd roll, then get stuck and cry. This happened for about a week, and then he settled on just sleeping on his tummy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I've only seen him roll to his back once, although I suspect he's done it more than that. He's all over his crib anyway, but we're back to sleeping well again. Phew!

This just happened in our family too! My ds is a great sleeper. But for the last couple of nights, he has been rolling onto his back (he is a tummy sleeper) and then crying b/c he is like a stuck turtle! We go in, turn him over, then 5 mintues later, crying again, needing to be flipped. Ugh.<br><br>
Last night though, he slept 11 1/2 hours without waking at all, not even to nurse! I wish my breasts would have allowed me to enjoy all that sleep... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I'm guessing that, like everything else with babies, it will pass!

Well- at least I am not alone<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Zachary seems to be settling down a bit. Granolalight, that's wonderful that your babe slept 11 1/2 hours, but I hear you about the breasts! I am hoping that once DS realizes its ok to be on his belly, he will settle into a nice comfy, long sleep!
