But, like PP said, I just climb on the bed on my knees and knee it over to the crib if DS is asleep or I don't want to put him down.
Do most cribs have two rails? Mine doesn't, so I couldn't get in from the other side either.
OP, I knee-walk across the bed too. I pull all the bedclothes back before I bounce ds to sleep so I don't have to get bungled up in the blankets and wake him up. He is over 20 pounds, and in and out of the crib is kind of hell on my body.
Now that he has begun to escape my make-shift soft rail on the crib, I am going to UN-side car the crib and put the rail back on so that I can put it up for naps and early bedtime. I got a bed rail so that we can more easily share our queen when he comes to bed with us. I'm not sure dh will love this plan, but it's the best I've got. And, hey, he's the one who refused to get a king sized bed.
