Most parents think of the crib as one of the safest places for their baby. Even when they aren't sleeping, you trust that those rails will keep your baby out of harm's way long enough for you to shower, pee, or even just catch your breath. That is, until they find a way to escape. Once your baby figures out how to make it over the crib's side rail and find their way to freedom, your world will change forever. If you've got a little escape artist on your hands, you need to know how to keep your baby from climbing out of the crib.
Babies are naturally curious. So it's easy to understand why they might want to escape the confines of their crib to see what goes on while they're supposed to be sleeping. And although babies usually has the best intentions, as a parent, you know how dangerous life can be on the outside. Making sure the crib is empty, lowering the crib mattress, and placing your baby in a sleep sack are just a few tricks you can try to keep baby safe inside the crib until you are ready to take her out. And if all else fails, you may want to consider making the transition to a toddler bed.
But if you want to stick with the crib, try not to react to your baby's escapes. Stand your ground and place him back in the crib without talking. It will be good practice when she tries to jump out of her bedroom window when she's a teenager.
