All my life I was used to European beds. But in July, we'll get a real boxspring bed (yay!) and with that, we'll get problems.
To be honest, we've got no idea how to make a co-sleeper safe for the baby. In Europe, they're fixed to the bedframe with screws, how will that work with a boxspring?

Could one of you All American Moms explain that to me?

Thank you a lot!!

I guess it would depend what you have for a co-sleeper. if you have a european co-sleeper and a non european bed it might not work?

We don't have a Co-Sleeper yet, so we're looking for something that is compatible with boxspring beds.

We have a boxspring bed. We attach our crib to the side of the bed in a sidecar arrangement using C-clamps. The way you can attach your cosleeper to the bed depends on the way your bedframe is built. Some people use rope or bungee cords to attach a crib to the bed in this way. We stuffed a quilt on the far side of the crib mattress so that it was flat all the way across and very snug with our mattress.

Here's some examples: Co-Sleeping w/ sidecar arrangement (w/ pics) - Cloth Diapers & Parenting Community - DiaperSwappers.com

The Arm's Reach Co-Sleeper works well with boxspring beds, but I'm not sure what the weight limit is.

Here's one of my favorite links for information on co-sleeping. She has safety information as well as instructions that others have given on how they arrange their cosleeping: kellymom.com :: The Family Bed

I hope that helps!
