Anyone else's baby a wriggly sleeper? Ben ccrawls in his sleep and then hits the end and cries or rolls and rolls and hits the side of the cot and cries. Any ideas how to help him so i don't spend my whole night putting him back?!

I've got a wriggly 8 week old so a bit easier to keep in place but he sleeps in a poddle pod and doesn't move at all whereas without it he hits the crib bars and himself, they do two different sizes www.poddlepod.com/.../4571794699. Quite a few md'ers have the pods now.

We had something similar but he's now too big and he ended up underneath it in the night! I may see if Ivan have a look at the toddler one I real life tho! Thanks for tip TP

I know lamby has the toddler one so could tell you the size of it to compare to a cot.

I'm having the same issue. I can't put E in the cot atm, she crawls up, twists rounds, got her leg so stuck in the bar I thought I'd break it getting it out and it's left a bruise, she sits up, then stands at the bars, then falls backwards... it's all very well everyone telling me to move my baby at 6 months into the cot, however I'm struggling! She looks battered and bruised. The next baby will be moving much earlier before mobile and I'll be sleeping in their room instead of them in mine haha
Anyway... just gone out and bought the air wrap to prevent the arms and legs in the bar issue. Don't think it'll help with the climbing and sitting but desperate times!

Hi LM we have the air wrap bumpers as he was sticking his arms And legs through the bars of the cribs. He's learnt how to move it now in the cot and thinks its hilarious to pull it down!!!! These babies are hard work!!!

F has always been a right fidget bum in bed. He literally moves around his entire cot during the night and has often crashed his head and stuck his legs through the slats. We got to the stage where we had to stop using those air wrap bumpers but they helped for a while. There's no way I can consider putting a pillow or duvet in his bed until he stops moving around so much!

Oh dear, just spent ages searching one down out of desperation. Looks like the travel cot is going into the nursery...

There's a sleeping bag you can get that attaches to the mattress. Apparently they can still sit up/turn to side and tummy but can't move up or down. I can't for the life of me remember their name so ill do a bit of googling. Someone on another forum I go on, swears by it.

McS - I'm going on a google hunt - that sounds exactly like what we need. Thank you!

I found one on Google just now but doesn't sit with our parenting style I don't think, too much for us.
I've just put the air wrap up.... Pfft its going to do sweet FA. I'm thinking I might need to get my sewing kit out and put straps to hold it to the top.
Step mum recommended a bumper all the way along each side (its solid ended) but not sure that'd work with as I've just seen her climb the one currently at the end of the cot...

I've just found one on google as well, but its not available in the UK and is around £100!!!! Mt only concern with his wriggling at the moment is he keeps banging his head!! I'm hoping he'll grow out of being such a fidget - but I'm not confident!!

That'll be the one as I'm sure the girl who uses it is from Australia! Rubbish.
