I purchased my foam at our local craft store, I've also heard of using books or bed risers under the legs of the crib to give it a lift. or a folded adult blanket/ comforter under the crib mattress to raise it up. when my 3rd ds was little I took a folded baby quilt under the head end of his crib mattres ( side-carred) to raise him a little for reflux and it seemed fine for us. As for where the pool noodle and mattress meet and there's a dip...I think I know what...
our crib was origninally side carred to our bed on the frame, but when we rearranged our room we decided to get rid of the frame we are still able to have the crib side carred with just the box spring and mattress on the floor- our crib has a low enough setting, so *if* you want to keep your mattress/boxspring on the floor you may be able to -check your crib's settings
we use our crib with the side taken off like this http://www.freewebs.com/sidecarcrib/index.htm (step by step instructions and pics) Since I made this website we have moved our mattress and box spring onto the floor for the same reason- a very low cieling, our oldest son was attempting to jump on our bed and shattered the floresant light bulb with his head- that was a disaster! Anyway,Our crib's lowest setting goes low enough to match up evenly with our mattress....
My oldest ds CLW at 4 yrs 3 1/2 mos My second ds is still nursing at 4 yrs 1 mo. he seems to be slowing, just like his older brother did, he generally only nurses in the morning and at bedtime, somedays he'll skip nursing altogether and some days he'll want more but I see the general pattern his brother took. My "baby" is going strong at 17 months
I suggest a king sized bed not a queen if you have the space and a sidecar if needed- i see someone already linked to my site it was incredibly easy to set it up, I set it up by myself when I was 8 months pregnant, big belly and all!
thank you I'll check that out

My suggestion (as a novice) would be to talk to your pedi if your worried. A mama's instinct is usually right on... I did want to comment on how awesome it is that you donate your BM. Mad props to you mama. Thank you! I plan on talking to our Dr when we go in for his 12 mo check, but a...

DS will be a year on may 14th, he seems healthy and VERY happy. At nearly a year old he still does not crawl, pull up to stand or even scoot himself around. He seems very content to just sit and watch what's happening. He will bear his weight if we hold him for balance but makes no attempt to move his feet to take steps. At his 9 mo well baby visit his Dr wasn't concerned saying bigger babies are sometimes slower to move ( he's about 25 lbs) also he's still almost...
