I should say, we're not ready for the toddler bed...
My daughter is 17 months old & generally has always played in her crib in the morning until she calls for us to come get her. But this morning I heard a thud, crying & when I opened the door she was standing there!
She's incredibly tall for her age (her dad is 6'6") & is in 3T+ clothing, so it was bound to happen soon, but what do we do? I don't want to switch her to a toddler bed because 1) she likes to jump in her crib & I'm afraid she'll do that in bed. And 2) I don't know how we'll get her to stay in her bed all night. She won't be climbing into our bed to sleep (because she's never liked co-sleeping) but to get us up to play. She has been known to wake up at 3am, stand up & say "All done."
I've heard about these netted crib tents, but I don't know if they'd work since the back of the crib slopes, as do the sides.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Should we just suck it up? Thanks!
