Now that your baby can rollover, it’s time to start sleep training. Here are some helpful products for those first few nights of sleep.

* NOTE: This article is about sleep training a baby who still rolls over . If you have a child who no longer rolls over, please consult your pediatrician before starting any form of sleep training .

After the baby has learned to roll over, there are much fewer restrictions on what types of sleep sacks & blankets you can use. It’s okay if your baby rolls over once in a while – just don’t leave them unsupervised or unattended. If they start to roll off the mattress, it might be time for a bigger/thicker mattress.

Please note : This is not the time to get creative with your child’s bedding, or use unsafe products . When you’re sleep training your baby (or toddler) it’s best to stick with what has worked for other families – try products that are adjustable and work within your budget. For this reason, we recommend using a swaddle , a wearable blanket, or an arm & leg sack .

All other age ranges should be done with the Magic Sleepsuit.

A swaddler is a great way to keep your baby safe during sleep training. If you are sleep training now, make sure you use one that allows for tummy time and rolling over. A swaddle shouldn’t be used past 4 months of age, unless specified by your pediatrician – even if they’ve been sleeping in it well up until now. Keep in mind that many babies can roll, even while swaddled.

Most of the time parents want their baby to be swaddled at night and unswaddled during the day so the baby can move, stretch and kick their feet. A swaddle transition sack is a great way to accomplish this without having to buy two products. This will also help with sleep training, because the swaddle transition sack has a zippered bottom . For this reason, it’s important to buy a swaddle transition sack that comes with a special mattress at least 1″ thick. You’ll want the mattress as close as possible to the baby so they don’t have thin layers of fabric between them and the mattress.
