Re: 17 Month Old DS Climbing Out of Crib- What to do?

17 months was the latest any of my 3 were in a toddler bed, and really the transition was WAY easier than I thought it would be. We had one or two nights of sitting right outside their room and telling them to go back to bed when they got out of bed, and that was that.

We did take EVERYTHING and I mean everything out of their rooms but their beds for my boys, or they emptied dressers and got into everything. We only had to do that for a couple of months though before we started phasing things back in. A little rearranging for a couple of months was worth it to establish a good bedtime routine early on in the transition.

We also put a gate across their door since their bedroom was at the top of stairs and we didn't want them wandering around. They could climb gates at that point, but never did across their doorway for some reason.

Really, as long as you are very consistent in the beginning, it's not as scary as it sounds!
