My 5 month old is quickly outgrowing his co-sleeper and I planned on side-carring his crib, but I'm worried that this isn't a safe option once he becomes mobile. DS wakes up multiple times throughout the night, so simply putting his crib in our room is not an option, as this would entail me getting out of bed several times a night and effectively rendering my sleep worse that it was when he was a newborn. I'd rather not dismantle my bed and put it on the floor, but that's seeming like the only option at this point.
Ideally I'd have his crib sidecarred to our bed and have a temporary, easily-removed, yet sturdy fourth wall to put up in between our mattresses for naps and when we put him to bed before we come to bed ourselves. Basically, what I want to know is:
Are there any options or ideas for a temporary fourth wall so that we may side-car our crib safely?
I'd love to have our mattresses open to one another at night, but have his crib enclosed while he is alone in the room.
Thanks so much for your input!
