Welcome to my little slice of the web! Join me as I try to wholeheartedly parent my three little boys, slowly fix up the trashed foreclosure we bought in , and live simply. Anonymous May 23, , 5: P May 23, , 6: What kind of crib do you have?
Ours is quite high at the head and the foot.
Yours looks better for the side-car situation. I hope all is well! P August 21, , Reply Link Annabee August 27, , 5: I used a bassinet for my first … but try finding anything on the market that will allow co-sleeping with twins! Thank you for posting. Reply Link Denise Fisher December 3, , I teach an online course to health professionals and would like permission to use your photo of the sidecar crib — the top photo in this post. Reply Link P December 3, , 1: Death by Dollface January 29, , 5: Did you find a way to push them tighter together?
Or fill that hole?
Reply Link P January 29, , 3: Pipe foam or a rolled linen towel or sheet shoved in that opposite end can also work to push the crib mattress nex to the bed mattress. Anonymous March 3, , Or do I need to get something else for her to sleep in as well?
Reply Link P March 3, , 1: We let V nap alone in it until he was crawling at 9 months. After that, we started to have him nap on a floor bed unless a parent was staying in our bed during nap time. But, we also started to teach him to scale the side of our bed on his belly to get out. Around 11 months, he understood how to do that.
So, we would do naps in the sidecar again. Baby E is almost 7 months and still naps in the sidecar daily. It is wonderful for nursing to sleep when needed! Reply Link Anonymous May 1, , 6: I have a pretty evacuation crib which does not have multiple mattress setting. Hence, the mattress sits too low. We are planning to drill holes and reposition the mattress. Of course we will test it for stability.
Do you have any tips on this? Yours was the only blog that drilled these new holes in a crib. It gives me confidennce. Reply Link P May 1, , 7: Measure twice, drill once!
We eventually got a bedrail and that worked for us. Bid layer is updating the contents. The Cosyfit also creates a soft safe environment for those who may otherwise be restricted to a wheelchair.
Hardware store workers and woodworkers would likely be happy to weigh in with a solution if for some reason you get it wrong. Reply Link Han Wood May 30, , 6: Reply Link -Pamm May 30, , 6: Could you net your bed, too and create a unique shape for the two surfaces together?
Han Wood May 31, , 8: Reply Link -Pamm June 4, , 2: If so, they should look into an extra large or custom mosquito net that will go around the bed and the side car. If no malaria, just pesky mosquitos, the only option really is to drape a net over the side car which will obviously separate mom and baby a bit but at least she can just lift one edge of the net to comfort the baby with a hand or pull baby into bed with her.
It can be tricky which is why Bronwyn just still sleeps with us! Hope your Tanzania mama finds what works best for her! Thanks for your help you have inspired us!!

Do you find it cumbersome getting baby in and out of the crib? Do you just crawl into bed with bed and place him there? And what about getting in and out of bed yourself? Reply Link -Pamm August 13, , 9: One way to approach it is to lay the baby in the sidecar from the bottom and then get in bed myself.
Another way is to lay the baby on the bed, then get in, then move baby over. I usually get in and out of the bed from the foot of it. Reply Link Anonymous August 13, , 9: I did not know about your situation, but glad you found something that works for you Anonymous October 14, , 4: Reply Link brisilva October 23, , 8: When you first take the side of the crib off, how does it stay stabile and have the two ends not bend in or out without the support of the other side?
Reply Link -Pamm October 23, , 5: Because of this, it is designed to be stable with only three sides. Aja July 23, , 2: My little boy is 8 months old. We moved into a two bedroom apartment about 3 months ago. He had previously been sleeping in a pack n play in our bedroom as his bed but did a lot of bed sharing with me.
We eventually got a bedrail and that worked for us. He spends the first half of he night in the pack n play and then comes to our bed when he wakes to eat. Our queen is getting tight! His crib is only being used for naps! I want to sidecar but wonder what the next step is and at what point parents move kids into their own room.
Reply Link Pamm July 23, , 3: For him, it stopped being every nigh for most of the night when he was able to stay dry at night because that is when he started sleeping through the night for the first time.
E, just shy of 2 years, starts the night in his own bed and toddles in at either 1am or 4am and snuggles between Dave and I. Reply Link Sasha Escobedo October 12, , 4: But because of that I never bought a crib. I have a queen and we do fit but he is getting bigger and rolls alot at night.
A side car would be the best solution for everything but how long do babies sleep in cribs for really? When he does come in with us, he sleeps in between Dave and I on our queen mattress. Neither of our kids has ever slept in a crib with 4 sides outside of a fluke when not in our own home , but the sidecar model can last a very long time. In other words, there are lots of models that can work, it just depends on what works for you personalities, budget, and space.
I also show some other options for mobile babies in this post: How sturdy is the Sniglar crib? Do you think the crib is sturdy enough for that? Thanks for your input!
Reply Link Pamm February 2, , 1: I have laid in it myself, stood in it to mount a ceiling mobile, and my 4-year-old has sigh even jumped up and down in it. Reply Link Pamm March 3, , 8: Since you are in the market for a mattress, you might enjoy this post: Our sidecar cot is much the same, but not up against a wall so our baby has been pulling himself up on the cot mattress, and leaning over the rails.
