What do I need to do to convert cotbed into a co-sleeper?

I've read a few posts saying how people have converted cots and cotbeds into co sleepers. This idea really appeals to me as DS1 slept soooo much better co sleeping and I'm sure DS2 will too (due 1st Sept) without him actually being in the bed.

I have DS1's cotbed so I plan to move him to a single bed and use the cotbed as a cosleeper. However, I want to make sure we do this safely. I have a metal bedstead type bed which sticks out about an inch around my mattress, presumably this would leave a gap which would be dangerous? How do you go about filling that gap?

I know you can get custom-sized mattresses from so that wouldn't be a problem.

I guess what I need is a blow by blow account of what to do from someone who has done it!

Many thanks! xxx
