Our "just turned" 2 year old kept getting out of her crib about a month ago. We removed the front of the crib and added a rail so she can climb in and out (and we don't have to worry about her getting hurt). Almost every night since then, it takes her 1-2 hours each night to go to bed. We have a 2 month old sleeping in the room next to her so we close our toddlers bedroom door so she cannot get out. The pediatrician recommended tough love and said that we have to let her cry it out. Some nights she goes right to sleep, other nights she will go on and on until we come in which can be 1 1/2 hours later (if we observe on the video monitor that there is nothing else going on). I have also kept the door open and every time she get out of bed, put her back in without saying anything. That did not work either. Friends have recommended the zipper tent to cover the crib, but I think that is delaying the inevitable. Help!!!Answer Question
