I don't know if H will be willing to get rid of our bed and put the mattress on the floor ...
Any other ideas????
It's a 4 post bed.
Also, the frame of his crib BENDS! If even a tiny bit of pressure/ weight is on it. Wtf.
This cannot be normal.
I'm having these problems, but h and I love having a family bed. Help us!!! Please.
One of my twins is in a co-sleeper so I have some ideas for you :)
If you don't want to get rid of the bed you could get a full sized arms reach which has a pad that connects your bed and you can get boosters to raise the height. Our daughter also moves around a lot so we swaddle her.
If you can talk the hubby into getting rid of the frame ( just for now) it will make you feel a lot better! Our mattress is on the ground on top of an 11" tall box spring which gives the allusion of a frame but not the tall height or wood rails.
Good luck! My friend always says the right thing to do is what works for YOUR family :)

a bending crib doesnt sound to great ... is it up against the wall? we had our side car crib seriously smashed up against the wall, that crib wasnt going anywhere!
we also had a gap because of our headboard. i used a body pillow for another reason (rollie pollie ds who kept rolling off the bed) on top of the crack that separates the crib and the bed. it also did double duty for covering up that gap. it seems so simple - a body pillow - but solved so many issues for us (rolling off the bed, the gap, keeping the "space" for when my dh and i had sex, being a pillow for my ds when he changed angles, providing a buffer for when he got into a kicking in his sleep faze...) We used it from 5 months to 2 years with him...
