Baby Finds A Clever Way To Escape From The Crib
Jun 18, 2015
Many a parent has woken up in the middle of the night to their toddler bumping around outside of their crib. If the house is inadequately babyproofed, this can be a problem. When your toddler starts to crawl out, you can either adjust the height of the crib (to make escaping harder) or transition to a bed. You could also, potentially, get a sleep sack, which is like a onesie mixed with a sleeping bag that limits leg mobility to restrict climbing while still being comfy enough to move in.
By the time babies are around 18 months to 2.5 years old, they are generally too big for a standard crib and ready to transition to a bed. A lot of babies will let you know they've hit this milestone in a pretty obvious way - they'll start climbing right out. Depending on the height of the crib, the fall down can be dangerous. In this video, a young escape artist in the making is smart enough to know that and slides the crib closer to a bed to provide a nice soft spot to land on.
