Our bedtime routine is anything but. Sometimes my 4-year-old will only go to sleep if my husband or I read in her room until she falls asleep. Other times my 7-year-old interprets “go to sleep” to mean “get out of bed and play with Lego’s,” over and over until we remove all 7,000 Lego pieces from his room.  But one thing we’ve always been able to count on is our 2-year-old going to sleep as soon as we tuck him into his crib…until last night. We had said good night and were downstairs with the other kids when all of a sudden there he was, grinning ear to ear, visibly proud of his newest accomplishment. He then proceeded to climb out the next 5 times we returned him to his crib.  I knew this day would come; I guess I was just hoping it would come a bit later…like when he’s 6.  I’m not sure I’m up to nighttime pandemonium times three. On the other hand, I’m fairly sure I don’t have a choice. Suggestions?

    When my son was about 16 months old, he began to start climbing out of his crib and really scared me. So I bought a Zipadee-Zip because I found out his prevend him from climbing out but also gave him the ability to move around. The The Zipadee-Zip contains the whole baby but allows them to have full freedom of movement. My son absolutely loves it and I can sleep well knowing he wont climb out.
