    We are running out of room in our bed. We can't put the mattress on the floor because of DHs back so we have been wedged against the wall. Now that LO is a giant we are running out of space. I want to sidecar his crib, but I have no idea how to do it safely. The crib is a convertible so it's safe with the front panel missing. Can I use bed risers or blocks to raise the crib so it's even with our mattress? LO has learned to pull up so I need to keep the crib on the lowest mattress setting... Any one with experience?

    Why not change the height of the mattress (all it took was drilling four new holes in ours) and then push the cot against the wall? I don't see why you couldn't raise the height of the whole cot though, as long as it was sturdy enough to take your weight if you needed to lean into it occasionally.
