Toddler bed help!

So my 19 month old daughter just learned how to climb out of her crib. She has been sleeping in bed with me and my husband the past week. But she will not stay in the bed by herself. How do you go about teaching a toddler to stay in bed?

when she gets up just take her back to her bed, dont talk or anything, or you could sit by her door and if she gets up put her back in bed or tell her to get back in bed

when my girls were moved to a toddler bed we took everything out of their room except for their beds and shut the door. they could get out of bed and play together but they had no toys, nothing to climb on and they couldnt get out. it was not fun for them, so they'd sleep. It took about 2 days and since then they go to bed with no issues.

my daughter is still in a crib and i when she goes to bed i tell her go to bed and shes does but i am fixing to move her to a twin bed and doubt it will be as easy as her crib lol . i plan to put a baby gate up infront of her door and and put soft toys in her room lol so she cant hurt her self. good luck

we did this. we also sat in the room by ds's bed cuz he didn't like his bed much. he'd get scared at night.
