B is usually a fantastic sleeper and I know I'm really lucky, but recently he's started to make a lot of noise in the night. Lazt night he was asleep by 7.30 and slept solidly until about 12, the made some noise so I had a look and he'd got himself into an awkward position in the crib, I moved him and he was fine until about 2, we repeated this a few times until about 5.15, when H got up with him. Do you thnk it may be worth moving him into a travel cot in our room, I dont want to put him In his cotbed in his room as he's only 15 weeks. Any other suggestions? I'm exhausted now from the broken sleep and haven't had more than 2 hours in a block!

Was he hungry? There is massive growth spurt at 16 weeks.
Is he in a grobag? Might help him stay comfy if he wriggles.

He wasn't hungry as he didn't cry just made a noise so I rearranged him and he went back off. He's in a grobag as well and I'm sure he's warm

Cot/crib bumpers aren't an option as can restrict airflow I think.
Was he awake and grumbling, or still half asleep? I'd probably leave to grumble unless the position was properly waking baby up.
Otherwise it'll be a case of wait and see if it continues happening over next few nights and if it does I'd prob switch to a travel cot with a proper mattress for overnight sleeping.

He's got bumpers, the mesh airwrap ones. Be was half asleep but when I looked at him he looked so uncomfy that I moved him to the middle and he went back off each time! I think I'll see how he is until the weekend and then it maybe a travel cot. I Forgot about a proper mattress, thanks for be reminder!

I've not heard of the air wrap bumpers so can't comment but it sounds like a bit more space might be needed.
I did learn quite quickly that N would wake up if he was uncomfy so I'd not move him unless he actually woke. I figure that he would wake properly if was really wedged, so I never moved him!
