  • We don't own one and I don't plan on getting one... my son has fallen out of his crib only once... and after that he hasn't tried again, yet. If he makes a habit of it then we will change him over to a bed.
    Is your son climbing out of his crib now or is it just something you worry might happen. If it's not happening now I would wait and see if he even tries. My son climbs EVERYTHING in the house but not his crib... he knows he will fall.
    I also found that bare feet make it easier for him to climb... so socks and foot pj's and he can't get a grip.

  • No I thought they were too expensive and I babysit a kid once who had one and he pretty much destroyed it in a few weeks time and finally tore a big hole in it that he'd climb through. If he's climbing out its probably time to just give in a buy a toddler bed. It'll save you money and the time has come anyway!

  • these are dangerous. I would recommend against wasting your money on one.

  • Nope because we moved them to a regular bed before they had a chance to climb out. Much safer.
