Toys in the crib?

So, my daughter has always had toys in her crib. Tonight, I decided to take them out to see if she sleeps any better. What do you think? Do you put toys in your childs crib? Does it keep them up (if you do) If you don't, why not?

  • I used to keep a bicycle basket in the baby's room. I put them to sleep with no toys in the crib, then when I checked on them before I went to bed, I would attach the basket to the crib rail. When they woke up they could get the toys out to play with.

  • My son had toys in his crib and it didn't keep him up. Every kid is different though.

  • I dont usually at night. She wakes up sometimes in the early morning so when she goes back down, I'll put some in her crib in a corner on the opposite side. She plays for about 15 minutes in the morning. It's cute.

  • Oh, but no, It never keeps her up. If she's tired, she lays right down. if not, she'll stay up whether there are toys in there or not.

  • we used to put toys in the crib but to keep DS entertained in the middle of the night if he woke up so we could sleep. he wasn't hungry, just wanted to play... toys in crib= problem solved for us.

  • I don't like putting them in there when he goes to bed because when he falls asleep he sometimes rolls over on them and it wakes him up. But if he's just in his crib playing while I'm getting chores done then it's fine.

  • My son just throws everything in his crib out onto the floor anyway. Toys wouldn't last more than 30 seconds in there lol.
