Removing wedge from crib
Any helpful hints on when to remove tucker's wedge from crib and what to do next. A is 14 months old and we are thinking about trying a new sleep situation. Currently sleeping on a tucker's wedge with boppy placed like a U under her bottom. Saw developmental doctor today and she thinks she is too confined at night and that is why she is so uncomfortable because she can't move. Just ordered a nap nanny. Waiting to see what that is like. May or may not work for the bed but might try it for tummytime and sitting. We are too scared to go cold turkey with a flat mattress.

Zack born 09/28/07 @ 31 weeks. Dx silent reflux @ 6 mo. Now not so silent. Switched to Elecare @ 9 mo. On Prevacid 15mg 1x daily. Looking to stop the puke and gain some lbs.
Puke stopped about 24 months and he's learning to eat...very slowly.
Still on prevacid and periactin.
i had been thinking of this lately...Z has been on a wedge since...jeez...5 months maybe? He's almost 22 months now. I'm not sure it helps him anymore...he doens't seem to reflux badly at night and sleeps great....but I'm kind of wondering if it ain't broke....i think I'll worry about it when we transition to a twin bed.

Ryan was born May 20th 2008. 9 lbs 2 oz. Ryan’s magic bullet was 30mg of Prevacid capsules mixed with Caracream from Marci-kids (I am forever indebted to the team at Marci-kids), Claratin for the mucos, and Mirlax for the constipation. Within 2 months of this combo he jumped from the 6% to the 50% for weight and continues to climb. Be strong, listen to your instincts. Read his story for more specifics that just might help you too - Karen
If you have not ordered the nap nanny yet, dont. She is too told for it. Trust me. It does not have shoulder straps, just the thing that goes between the legs. I had one for Ryan and one night I woke up at 3 in the morning and decided to check on his for some reason. Imagine my surprise when I opened my bedroom door to see him crawling out of his bedroom. I about died right there. He got right out of it. I didnt have a gate at the top of the stairs. That could have been really really bad. Perhaps instead you can try putting blocks under the legs of her crib at the head. That is what I did for Ryan. I screwed two 2x4s together. Not pretty but definately did the trick. He stays in place well until he decides to put his butt up in the air to sleep. Silly boy, doesnt he know that defeats the purpose...

Mom to two refluxers. DS 4.5 years, on prevacid since 5 weeks. Trial wean this Intolerant of dairy and soy DD born Nov 2010. Currently on zegerid. Had stomach malrotation & surgery at 9 months. Avoiding dairy/soy with her while BFing.
This post is a little old but I will add my thoughts... DS slept on a wedge til he was 8 months. But he was getting too big for it and it was limiting his mobility. He couldn't even roll over yet. Anyway, I raised the mattress with some rolled up beach towels and blankets. Then I rolled a blanket and made a U under the mattress pad/sheet so he wouldn't roll off it. Eventually I decreased the angle with the towels under the mattress. Now at 2 he will either chose to sleep flat or sleep on a flat pillow. GL!
