Our 6.5 month old dd has recently decided that our bed is an incredibly fun place to roll around and practise crawling. We moved our queen-sized mattress to the floor last night and are thinking of buying a twin mattress to put up against it for dd-- so that she has more room to stretch out, but I can still lay down and nurse/cuddle her to sleep. What I'm trying to figure out, is whether it would be safer to have the mattress squished up against the wall (creating a corner where she could potentially stick her face- so I worry about suffocation), or to keep a couple of feet between the mattress and the wall (meaning that she could, and probably would, roll and drop the 8-10 inches to the floor pretty easily) I kind of like the idea of some sort of mesh or slatted rail on that side to keep her in but not obstruct her breathing- but I don't know how practical or really necessary that is. Any ideas???
