Re: 17 Month Old DS Climbing Out of Crib- What to do?
Definitely time for a toddler bed! It will be safer than having him climb out of his crib and if he's climbing out and wandering around the house already then the things he might get into in his own room once he's in a toddler bed won't be any more dangerous than the situation he's currently in with access to the entire house. Just babyproof his room as much as possible and put a gate in the doorway.
