Hi, I am currently looking into the different 'sleep systems' available and I am completely confused!!!!

One of my two year old twins has quad cp and currently sleeps on his tummy (waking through the night, mostly with wind or because he has twisted himself into a position in which he is not comfortable!). We have been advised to get him sleeping on his side as it would be better for him.

We recently tried some of the Matchett cushions as we do not feel he needs to be 'strapped' into something and also do not like the idea as he does move around, although cannot roll from front to back. He doesn't settle on his back at all. Whilst the Matchett cushions seemed helpful to an extent, he didn't like the one at the front and the 'crinkly' sound of the one between his legs really distracted him!!! I also couldn't bring myself to pay nearly
