How to Side Car a Crib
After my daughter moved out of our bed we ditched our king-size bed and switched to a queen. When our son was born we realized how much room we did not have in our bed. We had to choose one of two solutions:
- Buy a new king sized bed
- Buy a crib or cosleeper
We decided to spend less money and go for the crib.
I LOVE IT. It has made me feel so much more secure than I ever felt with my daughter about my son not rolling off our bed. We have a ton of space for full family snuggles. It has been a life saver.
What you need
- 1 crib with the side removed
- 1 crib matress
- 1 pool noodle, the bigger the better, especially if you have a pillow top
- 2 thick strong bungee cords

What to do with the extra crib rail?
I have seen people use them for blankets, or to hang things off of. I prefer to use mine as a drying rack. It is great for things that don't belong in the dryer or cloth diapers.
