Do you mean just the mattress or the box spring as well? My DD is 18 months now, so it's not that big of a deal anymore, but I'd always wondered if the box spring+mattress on the floor was safe enough. I can't get comfortable on just a mattress!

I suspect they meant just the mattress but we have ours on the boxspring and I feel fine with that,  we just don't leave baby alone in the bed and I keep an arm over her waist at night. When she gets a bit older I will teach her how to get in and out safely.

That's what I did. She never fell off and at about 9 or 10 months I taught her to scoot off backwards and she was fine.

DD is only 2.5 weeks old but this is what we do (so far).
