Just when I think I am running out of ideas, one of the kids lends me some inspiration. Or at least something interesting to take a photo of. Delia is in a stage of rarely napping in the afternoon, so I went up to see what her deal was today. Sometimes she has thrown "bebe" out of the crib, or sometimes she has a poop in her diaper, or sometimes she is happily untying her bumper pads. But, no, she was happily chatting to herself and playing with her "bebe" in the crib. As I walk in and she sees me, she says "dance, dance, dance" and starts jumping up and down. Anyway, after a couple of minutes of smiling and cheesing at the camera, she decides she wants O.U.T. So the pudgey foot is up and onto the rail. I try not to give a reaction....I don't want her to think she is doing something that is out of the ordinary because this could really cause me problems. I can't imagine her in a big girl bed. (Although I already have the bedding picked out and just need to click buy--I like to plan ahead). I think I should do a little online research about those net cage things to keep her in. And yes, I really would do that. Hopefully, she won't follow through with the climbing out until she is at least 2??? Wish me luck!

I have one of the crib tents (2 actually)! Our son kept climbing out of his crib around 3-4 months ago and would not stay in the bed. Then we tried to convert to the toddler bed and it was a nightmare. After going through a month of awful nights we invested in the crib tent. My husband had to rig it up to our sons crib because the crib is too big but its been a lifesaver. He still sleeps in it and turned 2 in November. We got the 2nd one to configure to a pack n play for travel and it worked over Christmas! Anyway, sorry I wrote a novel. I would suggest it! Cute pic, too! :)

AAAAAdorable oh my gosh! That chin dimple! TOO cute! I am so lucky- 4th kid in and so far no one has climbed out but they are all in a big kid bed by 28 months (next baby was usually out of the oven lol). We used a bed rail- good to go. :D Made potty train easier for sure. She is just too darn cute though!!

I just went through this with my 22 month old. We gave up and converted his crib to a toddler bed though. Good luck to you whichever route you decide to go. She is a doll!

Love that little foot! My oldest moved out of his crib at 12 mos. Yep 12 mos because he climbed out all the time. The doctor told me it would be safer to put him in a regular bed than that. We just a box spring on the floor and a mattress on top of that. That way he could climb in/out bed without much distance to the floor.

Good luck with her!

So cute! Good luck! My last babe (now 2 1/2) climbed out way before 2. We just put a twin mattress on the floor so she wouldn't get hurt. Amazingly she never really wandered around the house even though she was technically able to. Worked out well, and I hope it does for you too!
