  • I just got a catapult to get her in and spring loaded the mattress to get her out.

  • I haven't lowered hers yet.....she doesn't sleep in it yet......but I"m going to make her soon!! But anyway I was thinking that the other day...how to put them in esp when they are sleeping when the mattress is lowered....and i'm short to begin with. I'm  5 foot.

  • Ugh!  I'm dreading the day we have to lower the mattress in the crib.  Luckily I'm a bad mom & we have a crib with a drop side, so that might help with getting her in & out with the lower mattress.

  • Are you trying to put LO down already asleep? DS almost always goes into his crib awake so it's not an issue, but I imagine if I tried to put him down asleep I'd probably have a lot more trouble trying to do it gracefully, lol. He's always sitting up or on his knees when he wakes so that makes it easy to get him out (looks like he's in baby jail the way he holds onto the slats, ha).

  • gee thanks, was thinking more of using a stool but wasn't sure how safe it was but would guess that it would be much safer than a catapult.
