We have been co-sleeping since our son was born in our bedroom almost one year ago (june 25th is DS's 1st bday - yay!!). However, our queen bed is getting too small. We have used a co-sleeper (which I tend to have my shoulders and head in for most of the night) but our son is head to foot in it now and when he flops around, he bangs his head and wakes. I'm thinking about putting our mattress on the floor and using another mattress to side car. Anyone else do this? My question is which mattress do you think works to side car? futon? twin? toddler? and..... as he is flip flopping in his sleep a bunch these days (a real fish outta water)... do you use rails? or what for a barrier.
I would love to hear people's experiences - good and bad - with this set up!
