my almost 1 1/2 year old has started climbing out of his crib. its not like it happened once its been every morning for the last four days. i looked in his crib and all thats in there is blankets and a stuffed dog not enough stuff to pile up to step on. the crib is on its lowest setting. so i imagine he is just hoisting himself up and over. i know this means i need to put him in a toddler bed before something bad happens but i'm not sure hes really ready for that yet. i think he wouldnt go to sleep/ sleep as well in a toddler bed so what should i do? my older son did not climb out of his crib except once and he got a black eye but he also had stuffed animals galore in there that he piled up to get out when he was ten months. after he got his black eye he never did that again.
so this is new territory. he wont sleep without his stuffed dog whish is only nine inches and very squeezy so its not like its helping him out much. or his crib aquarium which is too high to help him out. any ideas? should i just go ahead and switch him to a toddler bed? and if so how do i make sure he stays in it all night?
