My toddler crawls out of his crib:is it time for a big bed?

Yes! Our pediatrician asked us at Henry's 2 year check up if he'd started trying to escape the crib. When we said no, they suggested switching him to a bed because he would soon start trying. Sure enough, a couple weeks after his 2nd birthday, I heard a sickening thud from his bedroom. He tried to escape and landed on his head. Fortunately, there was a rug to cushion the blow but hearing that sound is indescribable.

I woke my DH up and had him take the crib mattress out and put it on the floor. There was no way I was putting Henry back in there.
