We recently bought the Thomas bed from Pottery Barn kids for my son. It requires no box spring, the mattress sits directly on the bed frame, which I thought was fine until I realized that all of the bedrails out there require a box spring in order to install. Has anyone run into this problem before and have any suggestions??? milla
In a few months we'll be transitioning our toddler from a crib to a twin-sized bed. What type of bed rail should we buy? Any advice about features to consider or brands that are good/bad would be appreciated. Thanks! Liz O.
If you are worried about falls, try putting the twin size mattress on the floor at first, so that if he (she?) does roll out he will only fall a few inches. But even if he does fall out of a standard height bed, he isn't likely to hurt himself. It's happened to most kids I know, including my own, and none are any worse for wear. Just make sure there's a well padded carpet or mat next to the bed, and that the wooden blocks and other hard toys get put away or moved away from the bedside before bedtime. Holly
Our *very* active 6 mo. old has recently waged a strike on the crib and will only fall asleep in our queen bed (I used to leave him in the crib for naps & early eves and then bring him to bed later). I'm looking for some bedrails that will keep him in the bed while he rolls & crawls before he conks out (supervised, of course) and then sleeps by himself. I think our mattress is extra thick, so I'm looking for some that are pretty high. It would also be great if they flipped down when not in use. I just checked the archives but didn't see any specific brand recommendations -- I know that there are several companies that make them. I'd love your suggestions on which ones to get and where to get them. wish they made family cribs
