Aw bless him - E was like this a bit when she first started to crawl, but settled fairly quickly. Although she does still sometimes ends up in a completely different place in the cot facing the opposite way by morning!! I was advised to make sure she had lots of crawling practice in the day, so that she could get it out of her system. Seemed to work for us!!

B did this and it was very frustrating at the time, but it was a phase that passed, he is still a very wriggly sleeper even now tho!!

I've never noticed F sleep crawling but he does move around in his cot an awful lot. He can literally cover every inch of it during the course of the night and often bangs his head. I'm not really sure that there's much you can do to be honest, we've certainly never been able to come up with anything!

Thanks ladies, I didn't think there was much to be done, although Alocin, that's a very good point - I will ensure he gets plenty of opportunity to wriggle around in the day!!
I noticed at one point he was completely sideways in his cot and his head and feet were properly wedged, but, as he was still asleep, I left him to it. It can't have been that comfy but I never could bring myself to disturb a sleeping baby! Other times though he clearly moved too much to resettle himself, but it is early days of crawling so I guess it's hard for him to switch off!
