HELP! My toddler is escaping her crib!

Truth is, this is a total normal development milestone. I know, it’s not fun at bedtime or in the middle of the night.
But here are some helpful tips & tricks!


-Put them in a sleep sack

-If they can still manage, put the sleep sack on backwards

-If the crib has a higher side, turn the crib around so that the high side is facing out

-Place your child back in his crib without any reaction or interaction, almost like a robot (this can work, but you must be very careful to be as mundane as possible or it can turn into an attention- grabbing antic as well).

If all else fails, put a baby gate at their door to treat their room as a big crib. Make the crib to bed transition. This too shall pass. I promise. Hang in there!

Remember! If you give this too much attention, your toddler will continue trying to put on a show. Try to stay as calm and collected as you can.

Hope this helps!
