We co-selep and our dd is starting to get really mobile and so I worry about her rolling off the bed. I'm having trouble finding bed rails that fit a king size bed. Putting the mattress on the floor is not an option. Any ideas where I can find rails? Thanks!

I guess I'm dumb but why do you need a bed rail specifically for a king? Are you looking for something as long as the bed itself? Isn't the only difference the width? We have a Safety 1st one that butts right up on the mattress so there's no gap for a baby to get caught in and I think it said it couldn't be used on a king but it works just fine.

We have the safety 1st rail on our extra thick mattress king bed. Bought it at Toys R Us. If you're trying to fence off the entire side of the bed I think 2 rails would fit, you may not need to fully extend the second one.<br><br><a href="http://www.safety1st.com/product.asp?productID=586" target="_blank">http://www.safety1st.com/product.asp?productID=586</a>

I've heard others mention some at Target. Our King has a deep mattress and I think the one at Target is good for that.<br><br>

it's b/c of the deep mattress for us. our bed is 15 or something inches thick.... and i haven't seen rails taller than 20 in, which i don't think will help.....

We have the snug tuck pillow and love it. We've used it since he was born, and he's now five months. Hopefully it will continue to be wonderful once he's mobile!

The one Erin posted is what we have and it fits our 10-12" mattress (can't remember which it is) just fine!

This is what we've had for the last 2 years or so and it works great: <a href="http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/sr=1-1/qid=1163115426/ref=sr_1_1/602-9101227-5851046?ie=UTF8&asin=B0002VAF3Y" target="_blank">http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html...sin=B0002VAF3Y</a><br><br>
We have a thick king mattress and haven't had any trouble with this one.

We have the snug tuck pillow too and it's WONDERFUL. I actually have it under the fitted sheet, so baby's foot doesn't go up under it. Love it -- and they have it to fit even the pillowtop kings, which is great, too.
