I am a Montessori teacher and a mother of 3. None of my kids slept in a crib. We just "prepared their environments;" making sure everything was safe in their rooms. Paula Polk Liiliard has a great book called Montessori from the Start and she explains why you do not need a crib. Plus, I always hear horror stories from my friends when they switch from a crib to a toddler bed.
