For those of you who co-sleep..


Do you use a bed guard? I sleep with LO on one side of me and OH on the other, but LO has started to roll onto his side so I'm worried about him falling off!

Yes I did. Now the cot is pushed up against the bed so it's been taken down, I'll save it for when LO goes into a bed.

Thanks, if you don't mind me asking is the cot pushed against the bed with the side off?

I was thinking of doing this! But wasn't sure how to do it safely, so LO doesn't fall down any gaps?

I made sure the mattress was the same height as my bed mattress. Pushed the cot right up against the bed and made sure it couldn't move (you might need to use bungee cords or similar, but I have a solid wood cot on carpet floor, I can't slide it so I doubt it will move by accident). Then used a bath towel rolled up tight to fill the slight gap between the mattresses (I had to do this because both beds have a slight ridge keeping the mattresses in place so while the beds are pushed up tight there's a small gap between the mattresses). If you want you can then put a sheet across the cot and bed and tuck in tight to keep everything in place.

We do the thing with the cot side off too. Loads of room!
