So I never planned on cosleeping. I couldn't get over thinking I might roll over and smother the baby. I used a RnP and then a graco dreamglider right next to my bed. He outgrew the dreamglider and I tried crib transitioning and it was fine at 1st but now he has a tooth coming in and I kept taking him in my bed in motn because he's miserable. I realized he sleeps so much better with me so why should we both suffer for hours. I have a unique situation, I work 3 nights a week and LO sleeps at my mom's once or twice a week. She is on board with having him in her bed when he stays there. My husband and I have separate bedrooms so it's me and baby. My main concern is if I get up to pee during the night I worry about him rolling over and falling out of bed. Does anyone use the mesh bed rails on their bed? And does anyone else start in the crib? I'm not quite ready for bed at 8 so I'd like to start him in the crib and when he wakes up an hr or 2 later take him in my bed. Just wondering what other bed sharing moms do

This is my rail:
Baby starts off in his cot, and I bring him in when he first wakes.
