When we moved Kaija to a toddler bed we initially did the gate her door thing. After a couple of nights we discovered she wouldn't get out of her bed on her own. She yelled for us every morning until just after Kolbie was born, so nearly 2 years! So we took the gate down and left her door cracked so we could hear her (we never used a monitor with her since our house is tiny and the basement wasn't finished yet). We moved Kolbie to a toddler bed at about 16 months and just leave her door shut. She can't open it yet so we don't worry about her. She does sometimes get up and cry and knock to be let out. The few times I've left her door cracked she comes straight to my bed. However do have a 1 floor house and if she did get up while I was in the basement I'd hear her before she got to the stairs.
