I had a question about cribs. It says that the mattress support at it's lowest setting to the top rail should be at least 26 inches, which is what ours is for our twins. My 14 month old ds just learned to stand up and he is so tall in the crib that he stands in the middle of the crib and leans against the rail with his armpits over the side and can't get down. When he gets tired he lays his neck and chin down over it. He is at such an angle that he can't push himself up and if his legs gave out he would just hang there by his armpits. He has been sleeping good until two days ago....he got up at 1:30 this morning and wouldn't go back to sleep, as soon as I lay him down he stands back up. Normally I would just leave him and he would fall asleep but I'm worried that he might choke himself. I have a camera in the room so I can see him. Do they make cribs that have higher railings? What height is yours? We don't have that much extra money because I am a SAHM. They say if they can get their head and neck over the railing they are too tall, but my son can't walk or climb off a toddler bed yet and I don't want to have to buy a new crib just for a year. Any suggestions? He's only 14 months.
