My son just turned three and he still sleeps in his crib. He climbed out once about 4 months ago but that was the first and last time. He doesn't seem to mind sleeping in it and I have to admit that it makes me sleep better at night knowing he wont fall out or be walking around the house getting into things. In the mornings he waits for me to come and get him out. I'm feeling like a fail mom at the moment though because it seems all the other people I know with kids his age have them in toddler beds already.

EricandAndremom is right. If you are worried about him getting out of bed at night and wandering around the house, you can buy a tall baby gate that he can't open or climb over. We recently bought one for about $45, which I didn't want to spend, but it is worth it. My middle child can open it, so we put a bungy cord on it to keep it closed at night. He is silent when he gets up, so we want to be sure he is safely in his room. I have woken up to the sound of him opening the front door, to let the cat in. So just to be safe we put the bungy on. It is easily removed by an adult, so I don't think it is a safety risk.

I should say it is a walk through gate, that is tension mounted ont he door frame. There are no screws unless you want to use them.
This is similar to the one we bought. We got ours at Lowes though.

IMO when they can start climbing out on their own, they are TOO OLD.
