I was still in bed this morning and dd was awake in her cot she manage to climb out and she fell to the floor i think she fell head first.Shes been ok through the day. She can even get out her buggy/highchair even with the straps on .When she was 8 months she climbed out her baby walker! Shes just turned 1yr,would she be too young to start sleeping in a bed? Im not sure what to do, ive put her to sleep in her cot tonight.. Any suggestions! thx
Try a gro-bag/baby sleeping bag. She won't be able to get her legs up and over the side. My DT1 climbed and fell out of her cot last month (11mo). Hopefully she won't do it again. She sounds like my little angel, far too agile for their own good. hth.
You probably don't need to move to a bed yet. She may not do it again. DT1 tried a couple of times but didn't succeed and now she's in a gro-bag all seems ok.
I was warned against putting duvets/cushions/pillows etc by the bed. Apparently there was a report of a child who fell and suffocated. I mentioned that to a couple of friends in rl who agreed. So, I wouldn't use that as an option.
I suppose it depends on whether or not they hit their heads. I'm just repeating advice that was given to me when DT1 decided that she was an escapee. Not sure it's worth the risk, so I'd go with the gro-bag every time.
my ds was exactly the same he used to escape any restraints and took to pulling himself head first over the cot railings so at 12mths we moved him into a toddler bed..the first week was hard as he realised he could get up but hes now 16mths and is great loves geting into bed etc..
it was best thing we did as he now loves going to bed as he doesnt feel as trapped..although there is a gate on his room ...good luck
Ive tried her with a sleeping bag b4 she gets stressed she likes to spread and lay on her tummy so thats out the window.. I think i'l give it a few nights with the padded landing idea and see if she does it again. If she does fall she'l have to have the bottom bunk then! thanx 4 your help girls
