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.
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.
