    Default *spin off* bed rails - when did you take them down??

    So as the title says - when did your child no longer need bed rails?

    My dd is turning 3 in 3 months and i cant see them coming off soon.

    She rolls around like crazy, head up the wrong way at times and sometimes ends up with her head on the rail and feet against the wall.

    However at her fathers place he just bought her a bed and didnt feel the need to buy a rail - apparently she hasnt fallen out and he says she doesnt roll around......

    Though i cant trust anything he says so im happy keeping the rail up for much much longer

    At 6 for my little cyclone sleeper. I'm getting her a double bed soon so hopefully she won't fall out of it.

    About 6 months after they went into their big beds.

    DD - 20 months
    DS - 15 months ish

    Both very restless sleepers esp. DS who still often ends up sideways or upside down.

    DD1 is 4.5 and still has her rail on.

    it comes off to make the bed and last week i forgot to put it on and by 9pm she'd fallen out, hit her head on the bedside table giving her a small cut on her eyebrow.........needless to say it'll stay on for a while longer

    I never used them. My two roll around like mad too but they never fall off. I did put a mattress beside DD1's bed for about a year but she never needed it.

    That sounds like my dd. If I forgot to put it back up after story time she would fall out within a short time. She improved, but I put a mattress on the floor now. This is why I want to get her a double bed.
