The reason? Well, after two other children our third little one has the perfect size feet to fit exactly through the bars of the crib. Is it the way he sleeps? Or does he have narrower feet than the other two? Hard to know. Just the fact that he can fit his feet though is enough. Once through he wakes, has his foot caught in something and sends out the blood curdling scream, hence our running.
So, after three days in a row something needed to be done.
A new bumper for the crib. A panel of fabric sewn in one long length, enough to wrap all the way around.
Well, it's woven through the bars of the crib. Which contains all little feet that might wander in the night.
Yes! Now we can sleep. Now we can dream. And, now we can wake to sweet chattering in the morning. Aaaahhhh....I love when things work out for everyone.
