Wild child falling out of the bed

edited September 2016 in Home & Household
Our baby is 10 month now and he usually sleeps in his own room and bed.

When he wakes up around 5 he gets his bottle and gets into bed with my husband and I and has a few more hours of sleep. I however get up between 4 and 5 so he is in bed with only my husband until they get up around 8.

A few weeks ago our wee boy fell out of the bed since he is always moving around in his sleep. Luckily nothing happend but ever since that I go and check up on them in the mornings every 15 min or so to make sure he doesn´t fall out again. I also put down pillows and blankets around our bed in the mornings.

I was wondering if that happend to you too.

What do you do to prevent that?


  • There are bed rails that I used to have when my middle child was a baby because to this day she likes to sleep hanging off the side of the bed. It prevents that from happening. I don't have them anymore but when/if she falls off, her bed is very low to the ground and it's not a big deal.

    With my baby, he sleeps with us, but his bed is right next to our bed, so if he was on the edge he wouldn't be able to fall off. There are also beds called side-car beds that you can attach the side of your bed.
