crawling out of the crib.

[deleted account] ( 5 moms have responded )

So this morning I was awoken by a slap in the face. My son learned to crawl out of his crib. It's already as low as it will go. I was wondering if anyone else's baby was able to do this and what you did about it. Did you just put some thick blankets down by the crib? Did you put them in a big boy bed? If you did put them in a bed, how did you get them to stay there?

You can order crib tents...they are mesh, easy to attach to the crib & easy to daughter loved it!

We put him in a toddler bed and put a gate (that he already knows how to unlatch) at the door. When he is awake enough he comes to the door of his room and babbles as he opens the latch. Our room is right beside his room so we hear him and that's our alarm clock it has worked perfectly for a month now!

I have had my 16month old daughter in a toddler bed since 12 months because she would crawl out and hit the floor (wood floor) So now she is in a toddler bed int he same room as her big sister snd her toddler bed. She has never had issues sleeping in it or even falling out of it when sleeping, I guess I got lucky? lol

We put Our daughter in a toddler bed right before Christmas because she was climbing out of bed. she sleeps much better in a toddler bed and she will stay there till morning but in the beginning you might have to put him back in bed a few times to make him understand. she is 17 months now. she loves to sit in bed and read it was a great transition and easier than you might think.

Last months I found my daughter trying to climb out. We have started transitioning her out of the crib. Crib for naps and big girl bed at night. We also put a gate at her doorway so she can't wander out of her room. Plus its upstairs so just safer anyways. IMO I'd rather them fall a foot out of a toddler bed than 5 feet out of the crib.
