Not sure where you are so I'm not sure if this is available to you, but we use a "Safe T Sleep". It's a large cloth that wraps around the mattress, with a velcro insert to put your baby in. I lay my baby on top of it, then wrap the velcro sides around her middle and she stays put - she has no choice, she absolutely cannot move to get on her tummy or to get her legs and arms out of the cot. We have used it since she was 3 months old (she is now 7 1/2) and she is so used to it that she is unsettled whenever i have to wash it! It fits cot, portable cot, single, queen and king size beds so wherever you are, you can take it with you and put your baby to sleep in it with no worries at all. It's a great relief too if you are worried about SIDS (like we were). She can't pull anything onto her face or get suffocated by her blanket.

Our son did that a few times but I just monitored the situation and he quickly learnt how to get untangled so it wasnt a problem. Maybe your daughter will learn how to pull her leg out herself.

maybe the breathable bumper, its thin and it will tuck between the crib and mattress.

my son used to do this and he grew out of doing it. I never used bumper pads but I did place a few flannel blankets along the rail and it seemed to help.

Here's a link that may help from the store, One Step Ahead. Some bumpers are really short and get crushed down. This place has one that is a breathable mesh that extends alllll the way up to the upper rail. Its what we have been looking at since my daughter is the same way and she's gotten stuck more then once. Another thing we are getting is light/thin sleep blanket. She can't get her legs stuck if they're contained. :)

im little boy does the same, i put him in a sleeping bag so his legs can get stuck, they do different sleeping bags for each season , so you can use them in summer as well as they do a little one for the summer.xx

My only suggestion would be a bumper pad! But if your already using one I have no idea!! You don't want to put to much stuff in the crib otherwise your little one could pull it on her face... Good luck and let me know if you find anything that works! My little one moves around but she has never doner that before. We just use a bumper pad and she can't get to the bars.
