Do you think this would be safe for a regular height bed as the only rail?<br>
I can't seem to find the ideal rail to put on our bedside for cosleeping with our newborn- to be.<br>
Anyone used this or can lead me to other good ones?

I've never used that one, but we have a Snug Tuck pillow.<br><a href="http://www.snugtuckpillow.com/index.html" target="_blank">http://www.snugtuckpillow.com/index.html</a><br><br>
I bought it when DS was a newborn and it's been great, we've used it with all 3 kids. The Snug Tuck isn't as wide as the one you listed, but I still notice the little bit of bed space it takes up. If you put that one on a regular bed it seems like it would take up a lot of the bedspace.

How does the snug tuck attach? And do you know if the one I lined attaches the same way?<br>
Does it have a piece of fabric that goes under the mattress? Or is there a different way it attaches.

The snug tuck has an elastic band that goes under the mattress.<br><br>
The one you attached has some material attached to them, and the weight of your body keeps it on.<br><br>
I'm thinking that the snug tuck is easier to keep on if you're a tosser and turner.<br>
And I'm thinking the other one is better if you need the rail to be very strong against someone leaning on it hard.<br><br>
The snug tuck is not going to keep someone very determined to go over the edge, from going over. But it definitely serves the purpose of defining the area of the bed, and an adult or child who comes up against it while sleeping is going to know that is the edge.

I've never seen the Humanity one, but to me it looks like it's one piece that lays on the floor or on top of the bed. The Snug Tuck has adjustable elastic that goes all the way around the mattress length-wise. The description now says something about lever buckles, so how the elastic is fastened in the newer ones might be a little different than mine that is 5 years old.

I placed a body pillow under the fitted sheet, and it's working great.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> I almost bought one of those co-sleeping pillows, but this works just fine and didn't cost me anything.
