DS turns 9 mo tomorrow (AAAHH!) and yesterday one of those "dreaded moments" happened. DS was napping and I heard a loud thud, I go in and check on him and he's standing in the crib pulling books off his book shelf. I gave him a stuffed giraffe and sat him down in the crib (I still had a few things I had to get done). DS started climbing up again and the giraffe was on the edge of the crib mattress with his legs poking through the slats and DS was leaning over the side of the crib trying to grab the giraffe's legs. Yikes!!
So, of course, we lowered the mattress- it's now as low as it will go, and we moved the crib away from the book shelf. But DS is pretty tall (97th percentile at 6 mo appt, 9 mo appt is in a week) and I worry that he'll soon be able to lean over/get out of his crib even with the mattress as low as it will go.
So... have any of you used baby safety nets?? If so, are they safe? Do they keep LO in? Do you have any brand recommendations?
Selfishly, I'd love to be able to raise the crib mattress back to where it was- the 2nd-to-lowest setting (the lowest is SO low and it hurts my back)- any chance I could do that if we use a baby safety net?
TIA for any help or suggestions!!
