The wedge isn't really necessary, you can incline crib mattress with pillows. We did that and then bought a Tucker Sling (http://tuckersling.com/). It was a godsend. we just recently transitioned him out of it. They're pricey, but worth it. Try Craigslist or Ebay for used ones.
JTGochnour:Did you buy the whole sling? With wedge and all?
Nope, just the sling. I seriously considered the wedge, but I'm glad I didn't. Pillows worked just fine. Was even able to still use the Angelcare Monitor.
ETA: Here's the exact link: http://www.tuckersling.com/khxc/index.php?app=ccp0&ns=catshow&ref=CribMattress
We bought it in Small and transitioned him last week when he got over the weight limit and was rolling over in it.
Full disclosure: I'm selling it on eBay now. But there's no reserve and I was just saying to DH that while I won't be happy if I don't get much $ for it, it WILL please me that a little baby who might not otherwise be able to have one will get one and feel better hopefully. Seriously, it was the best $ I've spent in his 8.5 months.
A couple of pics:
As you can tell I jacked that crib WAY up, hence the sling.
And this is his face after I HAD TO GO IN AND WAKE HIM UP for daycare.
Idk how old your LO is, but a Rock n Play sleeper might help.
DS was prescribed one after his diagnosis. He has been using it for 2 weeks now and at 12 weeks he has started sleeping though the night with it.
