Have you tried taking the adjustable side off the crib and then tying it to the bed?
We did this when Molly was little.
The sliding side came off, and then we used rope to tie the crib tightly to the side of our queen-sized bed.
There was still a little space, so we rolled up a blanket and jammed it in there so there wouldn't be room for the baby to get trapped.
Oh, and we adjusted the crib mattress height so it was even with our bed.
