How sturdy are these? Even though my 21 month old is able to get out (and get back in) to his crib I don't think he's ready for a toddler bed. I wouldn't feel safe if he got out of the crib at night without anyone knowing or awake to watch him and there is way too much stuff in the bedroom to make it "child proof". I'm looking into getting a crib tent but I'm starting to wonder if he'll be able to defeat that too. Can anyone tell me how sturdy they are? Like would he be able to untie it and take it off? And what stores sell them (not online)?Answer Question

I've been wondering the same thing and I have been planning on ordering one for my developmentally delayed 6 year old. She is still small enough to sleep in the crib but is starting to try to get out. If she does get herself over the rail, she'll plop straight to the floor! And then if she crawls off, there is no telling what she'll get herself into in the middle of the night (she still doesn't sleep through the night! Ugh!) Developmentally, she is about 10-12 months old, so switching her to a toddler bed is just not an option, and the only bed I have found that would suit her is $3,500!! (the Courtney bed: http://www.cyrdesigns.com//)
Would a crib tent work for us until she is too big for the crib?

That is the one I am thinking about ordering. One of the pictures shows a cat on top of it, so assume the frame is pretty sturdy. This one has mess sides which would be a plus for us since my DD sometimes gets her legs stuck between the rails. They do have another one with out the inner netting though.
