#Create a noise trap in the crib. Place something noisy in the bottom of the crib. This will startle your cat when it jumps in and the noise will usually scare the cat right out. Noise traps are great for when you won't be home to monitor or train your cat. Remember that you should never place a noise trap in the crib when your baby is in it.<ref>https://ift.tt/2PxfDzq>[[Image:Keep a Cat out of a Crib Step 5 Version 3.jpg|center]]

#Lay double-sided tape in the crib. If you don't want to hear the sound of a noise trap, you could lay down something sticky in the crib instead. Before your baby is born, lay strips of double-sided tape along the crib mattress where your cat usually lands. Most cats dislike the feeling of something sticky on their paws, so your cat will learn to avoid the space.<ref>https://ift.tt/2PxfDzq>[[Image:Keep a Cat out of a Crib Step 6 Version 3.jpg|center]]

#Keep furniture away from the crib. Cats may use bookshelves, chairs and the changing table as launching pads to help them catapult into the crib. Move these pieces of furniture away from the crib to minimize the risk, especially if your baby's crib has side rails that are tall.[[Image:Keep a Cat out of a Crib Step 7.jpg|center]]
