Last night our son came running in our room in the middle of the night crying. He somehow managed to climb/flip out of his crib. This scares me as I don't want him to get hurt. What go I do tonight???

If he's climbing out I would switch him to a toddler bed or a twin bed. My son was a little older, about 21 months old, when we switched him to a twin bed. For tonight, put him to bed as usual, maybe it was a one time fluke. If he climbs out again then you know it's time to switch.
