Can you swaddle her so she can't stand up? (since she's half asleep anyway) Sorry if that's a silly suggestion... I almost forgot what it's like to care for an infant! haha.

I'm just starting to go through the same trouble with my April baby since she's learnt to pull to stand this week. I'm at a loss :( can't swaddle because she's also a stomach sleeper lol

Yeah I've got no clue what to do. I can't give her any blankets because she does 360's the whole time she sleeps bashing her head and limbs along the side as she goes!

My 10.5 month old is the exact same way, he rolls around all night so the bumper pads save him. He just started falling back to sleep on his own a week ago most of the time at night, UNTIL he learned to pull himself up, BASH his head against the rails and proceed to FULLY wake up at that point in pain. It's frustrating, and I feel really bad for him. It's like he needs a fully padded crib :-P........If anyone has any suggestions I'll be watching. At this point I have to get him up and rock him back to sleep
