She can't go in a normal bed, she has no safety reflexes. She'd fall right out. And the bed rails that they make for kids aren't big enough. She would roll the the end of them and fall out. She likes to get up on her knees and kneel (tall kneel, for those who know LOL). She would topple right over the bed rail.
So I thought about my blog-friend Tamara, and her daughter Abby. She is in a gorgeous daybed that is turned around to face the wall, in a sense making a giant crib. But how do you change diapers? I assume I would then need a changing table in the room, but Peanut is too long for those. Her room is fairly small also. And as I priced day beds that would work (meaning, solid wood backs and not slats or bars) .. they are expensive.
So I am looking at SleepSafe Beds. I want a Sleep Safe HiLo for Peanut. Has ANYONE ever gotten one of these approved by their insurance? They offer letters on their website for you to modify to your child, to help get it approved. These beds are AWESOME, and would be perfect!! I am going to start working on it now, but I was looking for some encouragement from anyone that has actually gotten one before.
So let's hear it. How does your special needs child sleep? Is it working for you??
