Before our youngest was born my husband and I had decided not to buy a crib. We wanted our baby to co-sleep with us and we were pretty sure we won’t be needing one. Now that he is already eight months old I am already questioning the wisdom of our decision. If before I can just put him on the bed and not worry that he’ll fall now that’s not the case anymore. He has become so adept at crawling that I spend too much time watching his every move. He can crawl from one side of the bed to the other side in just two to three seconds. Which means I don’t have enough time even just to dash out for a quick glass of water. Aside from falling my other concern is his head banging our wooden headboard. So as a quick fix I’m thinking of buying one of those Fabric headboards that I see at The White Company. It would not only protect his head from those dangerous blows to the head but it would also add style to our bed. But maybe I would just buy him a crib of his own so that I don’t have to keep a watchful eye on him 24/7.
