What do I do when my baby becomes too large for the BabyCrate?

Around the age of 8 months, once your baby is old enough to lift him or herself up independently, he or she will be too large for the BabyCrate. Now, the risk for SIDS is substantially decreased and your baby should be able to sleep on a futon or mattress or a fullsize crib, in your or your child’s own room.

Most parents then use the BabyCrate as an attractive and practical toy box, at least until the siblings arrive when a new mattress pad can be ordered and the BabyCrate reused.
