Q: Awhile back I ordered the Ikea Minnen bed. We have since moved away from any Ikea before we could buy a mattress that fits it. Now we live so far away from any Ikea (4 hours being the closest one). What size mattress do I use?

I bought a crib mattress (stupidly before measuring the bed) so sure it would fit and it was a huge fail. Even at the smallest setting there is still at least 10 inches or more at the sides and bottom of the mattress. I don't want my daughter rolling off the mattress only to fall on the wooden boards that support the mattress. What do I do?? Help!
