Do you think it's safe to use a bed rail with a 12 m.o. who is crawling and pulling up/cruising, but not yet standing independently?
It's not to stop him falling out of bed - we have the mattress on the floor - but to make extra sure that he doesn't accidentally roll into a radiator which could be hot.
It's unlikely to happen, as it's not right next to the bed and I'm not bothered about when I'm with him. But being a bit paranoid, I'd like to be extra sure when he's in bed by himself. At the moment he sleeps in his cot befre my bedtime, but he's struggling with being woken up when I come to bed. (If I don't get him up then, he often wakes me just after I've gone to sleep, which is hideous.
If he's properly awake, he never touches the radiator as he knows he's not allowed to. We can't move it very easily away from the bed, which is why I'm thinking of putting the rail up.
He currently wakes after every sleep cycle during the evening. He has often pulled up safely on pretty wobbly thing e.g. a cot mattress propped up on the thin edge.
