Did I mention that a certain someone learned how to climb out of his crib?
AT EIGHTEEN MONTHS?!?!?!
He just wedged himself into the corner of his crib, leaned over the side and lifted his leg over the edge. Then he gently lowered himself down to the floor. All we heard was a little "thump" and then "pitter, patter, pitter, patter" and he was at his bedroom door trying to get it open.
The pediatrician was at a loss for advice. He is definitely too young emotionally to be put into a toddler bed, but of course we're terrified that he is going to injure himself on one of his exits from the cage. So far, we've been lucky. We're padding the bedroom floor around the crib, and locking the upstairs gate every night, and then hoping for the best.
I'm devastated, of course. I was hoping to keep him contained until he was 3! Now I'm hunting around for a decent toddler bed, since the move is approaching quickly. Has anyone used a crib tent? Should I even bother? What about duct tape?
