16 1/2 month old crib climber!! Toddler bed or crib tent?

He wakes up all hours of the night and comes into our bed from his toddler bed so I feel like that's not working and that he is too young to be in a toddler bed!! Im nervous about the crib tent! Any Advice? Does anyone have a crib tent and feel its safe??

  • It's really up to you and what you think would be better. I always said once they try to climb or do climb out it's time for their own bed. When looking into a crib tent you have to read everything about them because they do not fit in all cribs.

  • A crib tent is to easy for them to break out of still. Babies are smart and if the climbing has been mastered then the tent will do no good. I would transition into a toddler bed before the child ends up hurt.

  • Most definately a toddler bed. Your going to have to invest in one sooner or later anyhow.

  • Absolutly a toodler bed! Like one of the others said, the tents are easy for babies to break out of. You just have to make sure the house is completly safe and put up baby gates if you have to, make sure doors are shut and so on. As for climbing into bed with you, you will either have to let him or get up every time and put him back to bed. Thats totaly up to you.
