K climbs onto anything and everything!! She loves to climb. I don't know what to do to get her to stop as NO is not doing it. She'll stop for right then but later will be back climbing. It's a stage she's going through right now. I try and find things she can climb on safely and try and direct her towards those things so she can climb and "explore" as I know that's part of a stage and she'll do it anyways. If you find anything that works for not climbing - let me know - lol! It seems like I'm always telling her down or no climbing over and over; I must sound like a broken record to her
Matthew climbs a little but nothing like his siblings. They were monkeys. He climbed ontop of the train table and screamed until I came to get him because he couldn't get back down
Did you make sure the mattress is on the lowest setting?? Mine were all crib climbers and that's the first thing we checked (we just kept it on the lowest setting with Matthew). They do make crib tents if you want to keep her in it longer. OR you could transition her to a toddler bed. It's up to you. I would make sure her room is SUPER baby proof though. My dd was the earliest moved at 16 months because she kept climbing out. We made sure her furniture was fastened to the wall and put a baby gate at her door.

Carson is a mega climber, none of his brothers were ever climbers and I don't really like it!!! I cannot turn my back on him because he's getting on something he's going to fall off and get hurt. And he has fallen off just about everything - couch, coffee tables, both tables, beds, chairs, you name it! It's climb, fall, cry cry cry. Repeat. Ugh!
Wow! Thank goodness Kat isn't climbing out of her crib yet, but she sure climbs on everything else. Hopefully she won't be able to do that for a while. My friend's son never did think to climb out of his crib, so they had him stay in it until he was 3. I'm hoping for that!
