I initially wanted him to!  But then we realized that it is cheaper to get one off Craig's list, really, and we don't have room for one anyway!  <span><img alt="redface.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;"></span><br>

<br><br><p> Nothing, for right now.  If I decide we want one, it would be super easy to add one on.  But I figure the time between when the baby could maneuver itself down to there and roll off the bed and the when we can show him/her how to back off of the bed safely is a very short period.  I'd rather have them roll off of it then try to climb over a rail and fall.  The top of the mattress is only 24 inches from the ground, and it is carpeted with a nice pad underneath.  Though I think once Squirt starts rolling around that much, I"ll put some pillows or blankets down there on the ground, too, just in case!</p>

<p>DDCC to say...that is flippin' AWESOME!!! You are lucky to have such a handy hubby :D I'm gonna have to see if DH can manufacture something like that for the next baby. We have a used Arm's Reach Co-sleeper, but I would much prefer something that is level with our mattress. I hate the lip, and so rarely put Malachi in it. </p>
