My son just turned 2. Yesterday he climbed out of his crib, so we converted it to a toddler bed. Since this happened he threw an absolute fit (I can count on one hand the number of times he's cried going to bed, he's really been an easy kid.) and came out into the hallway. We had to install a baby gate in our hallway that blocks him off from the stairs. He just scales that as well. We're very concerned because he just goes down the stairs by himself. We can't use the gates that have diamond shapes (climbed over at 14 months), tension mounted gates get pushed over and now mesh gates can be scaled. I don't want to be mean to my son, but I don't want him falling down the stairs/hurting himself. We tried putting the knob lock (baby proof handle) on his door, but he managed to rip it off. At this point, it's more about his safety then it is being nice. I tried just putting him back in his room to no avail.
