Rollin' Rollin' Rollin'

PB is now a back-to-tummy roller!  Our strong boy.  However, it's not all cheers and giggles that come along with this milestone - not for PB anyhow.  Yesterday, nap times were thrown out the window as he ended up on his belly every time and would cry and cry.  I don't know if it scared him to find himself on his tummy or if it's because he would spit up almost every time or if it's something else altogether.  

I was worried about him sleeping last night and was prepared for a night of frequent wake-up calls.  Yet ... nothing.  When J woke up for his routine 3:30am feeding, I peeked into PB's crib and there he was sleeping contentedly on his tummy.  However, he woke up two hours early crying the same way he did all day yesterday during nap times.  

I'm so confused.

I'm seeking advice from all of you BTDT moms!  Is this a transition that he'll eventually sort out?  Is there something I can do to keep him from freaking himself out?  I don't want to try and restrain him or prop things on either side of him in the crib.

Edit:  Don't get me wrong, I don't mind PB sleeping on his belly.  Everything I've read says once they learn to roll over and hold their heads up then it is safe for them to sleep that way.  And PB has always been an awesome sleeper - sleeping 12 hours a night since he was two months old.  I'm assuming he'll eventually get over being freaked out by being on his tummy.  I'm just trying to figure out how to make the transition a little easier for him.  

We've already had to bypass current safety recommendations and put up the crib bumpers as we have found both PB and J in these positions:

J was full of giggles despite being stuck.

Whereas PB was not very happy about his predicament.
P.s.  I know I've been a bad blogger, but I've been thinking a lot about the future course of this blog.  I definitely don't want to give up blogging, but I feel a bit boxed in with the title.  Changes are in the works.  =)
