Reflux baby can roll... lower cot?

Dc has just learnt to roll over. Problem is cot is on a stack of books because of reflux. This makes cot rolling around unsafe, but I think it is still needed for sleeping!

Sigh! Any advice/what did you do?

Can you lower the mattress? You can in some and not on others...

It's not about that, it's about the cot itself being raised one side with books...

Have you looked at foam wedges that go under the mattress? I have one for DS.

This is where I got mine from...

I got one of them, but it made the mattress too high. TBH, with the rolling around I think the mattress needs to be flat, I'm just concerned this will impact upon the reflux situation :-(

Why would it make it unsafe? My refluxer DS had books under his cot until he moved into a bed age 2.
