Climber

Any suggestions on keeping our LO from climbing out of his bed? We have already dropped the mattress as low as it will go.

    Someone I saw on here, recommended dropping the bed to the floor (removing the metal/wood holding the bed up). There may be a gap depending on mattress size, but if it’s no wider than the crib bars, it’s should still be inescapable

    We bought a crib tent when my son starting showing signs of climbing out of his crib.

    After more thought I think that’s a better idea. If we put the mattress on the floor my wife and I will not be able to reach to lay him down.

    When they can climb out it may be time to change to a toddler bed. Our kids were early climbers and after a few thumps to the floor with the first kid we switch to the toddler bed. With the other two, we just switch as soon as they made the first full climb out. Lol. We put a gate up so they couldn’t go down stairs and a handle on the light switch so they could turn the light on when they climbed out. It was weird at first because they were young but the toddler bed went over fairly smoothly.
