A sleep sack might be the only thing to rein our daughter in at night. Because, when it comes to independent streaks in toddlers, our daughter takes the top prize. She has a motor that just won’t quit. She goes and goes until finally crashing at bedtime. Thank goodness she tires herself out and sleeps about 12 hours a night.
OUR TODDLER CLIMBED OUT OF HER CRIB
This morning, I awoke to the sound of her playing in her room, not an unusual occurrence. But when I opened her door, I was shocked to not see her standing in her crib but on the ground playing. She looked up and exclaimed, “Hi!” She had climbed out of her crib and got busy playing while my wife and I slept. At least she didn’t come into our room and wake us up. Yet, anyway.
But knowing our daughter’s independent streak, one night or morning soon she’ll scale her crib wall and be running through the house. She’ll either come into our room or she’ll head to the living room and start trying to play her Elmo DVDs.
SLEEP SACK PREVENT TODDLERS CLIMBING OUT OF THE CRIB
It just so happened that a couple of days earlier we were visiting with friends at their house on
Super Bowl Sunday when they told us that their daughter was a climber. Several months ago, the little escape artist kept getting out of her crib. So, our friends got the Sleep Sack to keep their independent toddler anchored in bed at night.
The Sleep Sack looks like a dress but with no openings for the toddler’s legs. And the Sleep Sack unisex. It works by not allowing the toddler to swing his or her legs over the railing.
Needless to say we are now in the market for the Sleep Sack to keep our toddler’s independent streak at bay, at least between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.
