We just put our bed up on a bed frame after having it on the floor forever ( we co sleep)



Its way too tall so we pushed it up against the wall in case LO rolled off....Idk what to do about naptimes now...or sneaking out at night to clean or have sex :P...I am to paranoid to leave him in case he wakes up and jumps off or something...



Should I put it back on the floor... or put a toddler bed in our room?



We put our bed up off the floor because we found a brown recluse in or room heh

Do they make toddler beds that you can lay down with LO in?

They could climb up the walls though.

They sell bed rails that tuck away when not in use.. If the bed is against the wall you could do one on the side and one on the bottom maybe? Here's a quick link to one but I know I've seen them other places too!



GL and EWWWWWWWWWWWw on the spider. I'd be spraying inside and out..... we do 2x/year here.

He's 18 months....I'm pretty sure he'd just climb over :(.....




Also brown recluses are only harmed by pesticide if you spray it directly on them....so I can only use glue traps :(

Right...but I feel like I am lessening the chance I guess....with BR being so reclusive its unlikely...I mean would you feel comfortable with your bed on the floor if you saw one in your bedroom.



I freaked a bit just cuz it is a fatal bite for infants

Teach LO to get off the bed feet first on his tummy. And a rail would work to keep him from rolling off in his sleep. (Unless he sleep climbs).

My bed is ridiculously tall :(...I wish I could lower it :(.



He doesn't sleep climb but if I don't come to him soon after he wakes up and starts crying he stumbles off the bed all mad...so I see him angrily getting off the bed and falling....I suppose I could put something on the side of the bed so he wouldn't hurt himself....maybe his toddler mattress hmm

Maybe get something like this for the end of your bed so that he can safely get down when he wakes up. I sure if you look you can find other options than this, or even make some. http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51a4D1W4t8L._SX355_.jpg51a4D1W4t8L._SX355_.jpg
