Do the raised sides on the top and bottom (head and foot) make this pad more difficult to use as baby gets older/longer/bigger?

My girls are starting to crawl and for me, the top and bottom walls are still an added bonus. One of them likes to arch her back so the top keeps her from scooting up. The other is a wiggler and tries to scoot down. The sides are cushy enough to not bother them if they lay their feet or calves on them, but has just enough of a bump even when squished to catch their scooting bottom if they even get that far. They both like to brace their feet on the end too. It's relative though and all depends on the baby I suppose.

My son is 6 months old & we are still using this. He's in the 60th percentile for his age, so he's a little on the longer side. We still use this without problems.

My baby is 15 months and it still works fine.

Yes, As the baby becomes longer than the distances in between the raised sides, however I just bring him down a little to make the head fit flat on the pad since the legs are raised anyway for a diaper change and it's okay if they bend over the bottom raised side.

I don't think so. For the older/taller children, I typically use the raised area at the head end as a pillow.
