I’ve only ever seen DS roll from back to tummy, towards his left, and yet somehow now matter how far to one side of the crib I lay him down (on his back) to sleep at night, within a matter of a couple of hours, he is pressed up against the slats on the other side, often crying because he’s managed to get a leg or arm out and stuck between the slats.
Anyone else had this problem? What did you do? I’ve read reviews for some of those “breathable” mesh-like bumpers online, and people don’t seem all that thrilled with them- has anyone tried those? Any other strategies for keeping baby’s limbs all inside the crib and baby asleep through the rolling?
I swear, I’m tempted to clear out an entire room for him and just put him to sleep on the floor and let him roll around to his heart’s content.

I’ve seen these slat cushions that go around each individual crib slat, and I’ve considered getting some of those, but they’re so darn expensive. I liked those better than the breathable bumpers because it doesn’t have the unprotected space above a bumper, and you can leave them on even after your baby starts pulling up/standing. the might be another option.

That was happening with Kayla when all I had was a crib sheet. She was already starting to pull to stand and try to climb up so a regular bumper was a no-no. We ended up getting a breathable bumper. It’s to flimsy to climb on and she hasn’t gotten any limbs caught since we put it on. I’m not sure if this is because she learned not to do that or because of the bumper! 🙂 I haven’t had any issues with it. It was a little hard to figure out how to get the two pieces to fit on the crib and cover all the spaces, but I have a crib with wide slats, and I’m sure it would have been easier on a different crib.
