I've forgotten. Does it go down when she starts to sit upright? or when she might sit? or is it by age?
when did you lower your crib mattress? thanks!
We lowered it when we thought LO was getting close to sitting up on his own.
I was holding my breath and hoping that LO would hold off until his daddy came home from Iraq. Fortunately, he did. DH lowered the mattress when he got home and it was still a couple of weeks until LO sat up in his crib.
We have a video monitor, so I was able to see how LO was moving around in his bed.
Age-wise, we lowered LO's crib at about 9 months.
I don't think there's a specific time when you are "supposed" to do it.. .just do it when you think the time is right.
C sits well and is starting to make moves that he wants to stand up in his crib. This afternoon I caught him peeking over the rail--pulled himself up enough to peek. It's getting lowered this weekend sometime.
We lowered ours when I saw that she was attempting to pull herself up. Ideally, you want to lower it before the can do this. The worst way to find out they can pull up to a stand is for them to accidentally topple out of the crib....
I think we lowered ours to the 2nd lowest setting. It hits just beneath her shoulders, however, I caught her peering over the rail at a toy and I think I am going to lower it to the bottom level this weekend.
I think PPs idea about just dropping it all the way down is a good one.
