I am pregnant with number 3. Until now my youngest (just turned 3) has slept in bed with me. We are trying to get him in to his own bed. He's not fighting to much BUT, he keeps falling out of his toddler bed. When he was in my bed he was between me and a wall, so there was no issue, but he tosses and turns a lot in his sleep. The toddler bed is one of those convertible cribs, so it has 3 sides, and we put a third "mini" side rail (the ones for bigger beds) on the other side. But he keeps rolling against it and falling out of bed on to the floor, which is a good 18 inches below - not a good way to wake up!
Is there anything else I can use that will keep him from falling out, but that would still allow him to climb in and out if he wakes up and needs us or has to use the potty? Or is there some other option?

I'd say the bed isnt' big enough for him... he's probably ready for a twin bed by now. Both my kids have been in twins since age 2, and we used those mesh side rails so they didn't roll out. Maybe there just isn't enough room for him to move around in while he sleeps??
