Sleep Positioners SIDS risk!!

SIDS and sleep positioners
I used a sleep positioner with my DS until he started rolling (because he would roll out of it). But before that we used it because he was a tummy sleeper (still is) and I was terrified of SIDS. Now this has come out and I wanted to know what other mums thought. I am having bub number two in 14 weeks and now I am afraid to use it. What would you do/ did you do?
Quite scary really!

I often wonder about how helpful the SIDS awareness campaign really is. I mean we still don't know what causes SIDS. Whilst my heart truly goes out to those unfortunate families who have been hit by it, I'm not sure a generation of sh!t-scared parents is the answer.
I'm not sure if this is true but my ECHN said that over 90% of SIDS babies come from smoky homes. I took it as gospel to try and allay my own fears when the kids were teeny.

I felt really secure knowing she was in it and never thought about the risk of SIDS in terms of using one.
I think this is a bit of a beat up tbh

Will you be wrapping Dimples?

Its my personal opinion that everything is becoming a sids risk. Trust your instincts IMO. If you are comfortable using it, then go ahead. If not, then don't.
(I'll probably get flamed for this, but its just my opinion)

My 5 month old has just started flipping from back to front. All day he does it.. but he isn't very happy on his belly so just whinges til I flip him back.. then over he goes again. Which is fine during the day..
At night Im still wrapping him tightly but he's usually wriggled out of it by the morning. The last few nights I've found him flipped onto his belly asleep? Is it safe to leave him there (knowing that he can't roll back?)
When I tried to turn him last night, he woke up. Which is fine but he's just started sleeping through again so I don't want to be disturbing him every couple of hours when I rouse?
