What does everyone else do?
He nursed a lot at night so depending which side he was nursing on, sometimes I had him in between me & DH, but with a firm pillow between DH & DS. That worked fine too but I know some people would be uncomfortable with the pillow being in the bed at all. It was fine for us because of the way DH slept and DS always stayed close to me and the pillow never moved.
Just for the record. my DS is 2.5 now and we now have a regular-height bed (mattress and box spring) and DS sleeps between us with no barrier between him & DH anymore.... so you don't have to worry about these things forever!! But I still won't put the bed against the wall, I'm terrified of entrapment!!
(sorry, I'm a bit long-winded sometimes...)
Out of curiosity, how did u handle nap times? Right now my plan is to babyproof the room and let her nap on the mattress. I do that now but she's not crawling yet. I may also try to help her nap in her crib. She likes the crib equally as much as the bed, thankfully, but I just can't get her down and staying asleep after the set down.
We pushed our bed against the corner wall. We also put yoga bolsters next to our LO and above his head, so we didn't have to worry about him rolling into the crack. He was about 8-11 months and was also swaddled. Only one of us could sleep with him, though.
We have a no gap bed rail (part of the rail fits over the mattress) so there is no possible way to roll in between the rail and the mattress. I wouldn't be comfortable pushing the bed against the wall either and I refuse to put my bed on the floor.
