I don't know what to do. Maddie is able to climb out of her crib. She can put her foot on the rail and pull her self up. So I tried taking the railing off her crib again tonight. Well it worked for a little bit. But then she woke up and remembered the rail wasn't there and got scared. So then I tried to just lean the rail up against her bed so that it was there but not ya know. Well she rolls around alot when she sleeps. And must have knocked it down mid-flop. But didn't wake up. Well about 5 minutes later I hear another thud and her crying. She had rolled out of bed onto the rail. Got her calmed down and laid back in bed. Well she freaked out as soon as I put her down. So I put the rail back up. she cried for about 3 seconds... then fell asleep.
I really dont' know what to do. She 'needs' that rail as a security for her to sleep. But she can climb out of her cirb which is dangerous. I'm also not happy with how low her crib goes for the matteress. It is a convertable crib, toddler bed. But the top of the matteress is at least 24 inches from the floor. So that's a ways to fall when your asleep.
Any mom's here have an idea of what I could do? She is at least 32 inches tall, I don't know if that makes a difference. And 16 1/2 months old.
