Re: How do you keep your toddler from jumping on the bed?

She's only ever in her crib for sleeping. No playing or anything. She has this habit of sticking her feet through the slats and kicking the wall. She will do it for an hour some nights. I just don't want her in there bouncing when I'm not there. I'd rather her kick the wall. Until her feet get stuck of course and she freaks out.

We allow knees on our bed, but nothing on DS's bed. Despite the rule, they jumped on his bed last week and he fell, hit his head on the window sill, and ended up with stitches and antibiotics for a nicked bone.

Oh no! That's no fun. I hope he's okay!

No jumping here. Buy a mini trampoline with a handle/bar. That is what we did. We also had a big trampoline until last winter when we moved.

I tell my daughter not to jump and she doesn't. I am not a safety nut but that one can't go on because she has fallen before on the bed and hit into the wall. So no more jumping.

I never stopped mine. We got a mini trampoline. The novelty wore off after awhile. If they need to jump they'll find a way. It fulfills a sensory need.

Our mattresses are on the floor so they are allowed to jump. They are memory foam so not very bouncy anyway. We do have a couch w/ chaise lounge and cushioned ottoman. We will arrange these like a U and fill the space with all the pillows and cushions and jump away. We just make sure they go one at a time. It's great to get energy out!
