We finally had to take the box spring out from under the mattress in the bedroom, cause DS was crawling off the bed. So, now he can easily get off the bed while we're sleeping. He hasn't done this yet, but I worry about him crawling off and getting into trouble or something. I plan to put the baby gate up so he at least can't get out of the bedroom, but we've got another little problem. We have this little bear nightlight that's plugged in right next to the bed, so that we can see for the middle-of-the-night feedings and so that DH can see when he goes to bed at 3 a.m.
DS has recently discovered the wonders of the nightlight and is drawn to it. When we're awake, it's okay, because we can divert his attention, but what happens if he tries to play with it while we're sleeping?
Have any of you woken up to find the baby was WIDE awake and messing around in the bedroom? Would I naturally wake up if I felt him stirring that much anyway?
