My daughter just turned 13 mos and knows how to climb the side rim of her crib, however this new bed we got her has side rails which could easily have a baby's little foot caught in it. Now I know that the AAP recommends not buying a bumper, but what's the solution?

No I mean the box spring that holds the mattress. If you take that out she won't be tall enough to reach the railing to climb out. I had to do the same with my daughter. Ten the mattress can lay on the floor. Unless you have a different style crib.....
