Zeb took the big leap this morning. We knew it was coming- we just weren't sure when. At seven he catapulted headfirst out of his crib and onto the floor. He wailed like a banshee baby- but only out of fear. He did make quite the loud thud but there are no contusions or lacerations anywhere on his body- and he was very quickly consoled with his blanket and a train. So, now we have to decide when to make the switch to his bed. I suppose with a new rugrat in 7 weeks- now is as good a time as any for the switch. When do most kids go to a bed? We already have a full/queen bunk bed bottom all set up in the room that will be his. It is low to the ground- he can get on and off by himself- and he really likes it. Any suggestions?
Maybe we should get a crib tent?! I think that this is akin to the child leashes- very effective and practical (it even appears to keep the cats out)- but a little strange and zoo like.
