So i've got it so my dd can stay alseep in the the bed while i make a quick trip to the loo at nighttime. However now we've moved to the family bed upstairs (we had been sleeping in the livingroom on a twin matress with a wall at the foot of the bed and on the left side, a guardrail on the other side and a couch at the top) however the only saftey device on the family bed is a bedrail on my side of the bed, and a wall at the top of the bed. We've got it as low to the floor as we can. however i have reflux so the head of the bed needs to be jacked up 6 inches and therefor i need the the box spring. I'm wondering if there are other ways i can keep her safe while i run downstairs to use the bathroom. I have a blanket box i can put at the bottom to help her from slipping off the bottom. My husband works shift work so every 6 weeks there will be a two week period where i'm alone at night. I don't know whether i should raise my bed to the hight of her crib so that i can just slide her in there, or leave it low to the floor. How do you other mom's keep you little one safe when you make a run to the loo? (I'm not sure if i've explained myself very well if you need more info let me know, I would like to continue using the family bed until she's about two)
