My DD is 7 months old has just started crawling everywhere. I cosleep with her at night so I don't have any worries about night time sleeping, however I was having to lay down and nurse her to sleep in the middle of my bed for her naps. Now that she is crawling I don't know what to do for her naps. I'm afraid she will crawl off the bed. I can't nurse her to sleep and then lay her down in a crib or anything because she wakes up when I try to move her, that's why I was laying with her to get her to sleep before. I also can't lay with her the whole time she naps because I have a 2 year old that would be into everything if I did that. I've tried folding a blanket up on the floor and laying her on that and trying to nurse her to sleep on that, but that only works for a few minutes. I think she can feel the floor move from my 2 year old bouncing around (which seems non-stop). I have no idea what to do now. Do any of you have any ideas of a safe place I could lay down with her to nurse her to sleep or a way for me to transition her to a crib maybe after she is asleep?

A new doggy bed is a good idea! I never would have thought of that!
If a nest on the floor doesn't work is it possible to put your mattress on the floor? That is what worked for us when DS started crawling... He fell off a few times but he never got hurt and cried or anything... You can use fluffy blankets to cushion the floor for her just in case.
