That's a good idea too. I've thought about that but didn't want to sew it to the cushion just yet.

We just tested it by trying to roll our kid into the netting with his full weight and it was tight enough up against the cushion that he couldn't roll off the mattress and into the fabric.

Boats often have cloths at the sides to stop folks falling out of bed. On our sailboat they were screwed to the framing under the mattress/cushion and the upper edges had grommets for small ropes that tied to padeyes on the wall. When not in use they folded under the cushion. With kids I would probably remove the ropes when not in use. In use they should be taut and no risk of entanglement.

Here us a video from Sailright on how to make those "lee cloths" that were used on your sailboat to keep people from falling out of bed. They do describe it as a beginning sewer's project.

A simple fix for our two year old twin grandchildren was to place a "pool noodle" under the outer edge of the bottom sheet before tucking it in. This has kept the tykes from rolling out of bed, and doesn't restrict their view or make them feel constricted. They roll against the pool noodle and then roll back to the center of the bed.
