Babies don’t always work alone, either.
It’s comical to see a sibling standing by, watching curiously as their brother or sister attempts to escape. Are they taking notes? Holding their breaths in anticipation? Waiting for mom and dad to bust in and catch their sibling in the act? We’ll never really know as babies’ minds seem to be wired differently and are quite advanced. These adorable onlookers will either be tattletales or accomplices in the near future, that’s for sure.
This compilation of escape tactics will undoubtedly make you question the efficacy of baby-proofing strategies because let’s be honest, the little ones just continue to find ways around them! Pretty impressive when you think about it. Do they formulate plans A to Z in their heads while playing, or do they get these lightbulb moments and immediately act on them to test the waters? If only babies came with thought bubbles and subtitles!
One of the babies caught on video even carefully studied each step in his plan! You’ll laugh when you see how he first looks around for objects to use and finally decides on a pillow which he proceeds to throw on the floor. What’s it for, you ask? A guaranteed soft landing, of course! How smart is that?!
Keeping an eye on a baby is a tough job. It’s more than just making sure they’re fed, clean, happy, and entertained. They know how to take advantage of each second you’re not looking, which really is proof that size isn’t a gauge of intellect and that they’re not to be underestimated at all.
Let this funny compilation of smart baby escape plans remind you of why you should really watch your little ones like a hawk!
