    Apparently when I was a toddler I would throw my bedding out and jump out, landing on the bedding.

    I am really worried about DD jumping out and hurting herself. She is 21 months now.

    No, and she was in it well into her walking stages... she didn't get an actual bed until after her 2nd birthday, so was in a cot until then.

    We lowered the base and she had nothing she could stand on in there... she never climbed out, let alone fell out.

    No. Base was lowered once they were moving around, rail was up. The first time they climbed out they were put into a bed.

    My DS1 never fell out of the cot. We were really careful, lowered the base of the cot once he was more mobile and never left the railings down. Even when he was standing in his cot at 9 months he didnt try to climb out.

    My 7 months hasnt fallen out either. Again railings are never down once he could roll. We are going to lower the base soon. However he rolled and fell off my bed several weeks ago. It was horrible! I was making a bottle for him and when i turned he was at the edge! I lunged forward but off he went, rapid free fall then onto the timber floor with a thud and a scream. He didnt cry for long at all but my bed is table height! I couldnt sleep that night, too busy watching for anything wrong with him but thankfully he was all okay. Never let that happen again. I was very tired that evening but still no excuse!

    If your baby is standing, and the cot base is still raised and the rails are down, well that's just a recipe for disaster really. The base needs to be lowered, now, not soon. And the rails need to come up every time. Toddlers are little monkeys that can climb everything and sometimes fall while climbing, but there really should be no way a little baby could fall out of their cot. JMO
