How Pinteresting: Keep a Child from Falling Out of Bed with a Pool Noodle

When I saw a pin on Pinterest that offered a solution to keep your child from falling out of bed, I knew I had to give it a try. Nine times out of ten, my daughter is asleep on the floor by morning, either that or she falls of the bed and wakes up and then we both end up, up all night. 

This pin said to take a pool noodle and slide it under a fitted sheet. It should then sit on the edge of the bed and keep the child from falling off. Did it work? Yes and no. When the noodle stayed in place, it worked like a charm. She spent an entire night in her bed. Miracle! Then, I am not sure what happened. I am not sure if the sheets were stretched out a bit because of the noodle being in them, but eventually the pool noodle would no longer stay put, it fell off the edge of the bed and stayed on the side of the bed. Not very effective.

We have tried a little velcro, but it doesn't love sticking to the mattress, so we end up with the same problem after a day. Right now this pin is going in the Pinterest fail column, but I am determined to  make that noodle stay. Any ideas?
