  • I didn't because his room is upstairs. I'm okay with him being alone in his room now.

  • Only if it is completely safety proofed and you check in regularly.

  • Yep, he's been playing in his room alone since he could crawl in there and get out toys. Now he's 5 and still plays in there all the time. We also live in a ranch style house though so there's never been stairs to worry about. If his room were up a set of stairs probably not.
