I have a wonderful 10-mo old who is going through some tough times with sleeping right now. She's up every 1.5 hours again. I'm sure it's due to teething and some development stuff. She's never been a great sleeper, but a few months ago we transitioned her to her own room, because she was sleeping better on her own compared as in bed with us. Now the frequent night wakings are getting the best of me, and I'm considering moving her back in with us. She still isn't the best bed sharer, so I've been thinking about having her try the Arm's Reach in our room. I'm wondering is anyone else has an older baby (crawling, pulling up) who is sleeping in this situation, and how you have it set up - attached to your bed with railing low, next to bed with railing up, or separated from you bed? Any other suggestions are also welcome, although I will say that side-carring her actual crib probably isn't an option for us.

Have you looked up the weight limitations for your cosleeper? My cosleeper mini only goes to 20 lbs, I think, and my son is over 17 lbs already.
