Crib to Toddler Bed???
Our son is 1 ( Jan. 18) I am thinking of changing his crib in to a toddler bed, I am hoping that it will help him to stop crying every time he wakes up, weather it be from nap time or bed time he wakes up crying... So what are you thoughts???
you can try and see how it goes for him. I hope he will like his new bed
Just wanted to update: We did not switch to a toddler bed. We dont have the money to buy a bed rail and he really is just fine in his crib for a while longer... and if he goes to a toddler bed then he wont be my baby any more he will be a "big kid" Maybe this summer :)
I say go for it. Don't expect immediate results. Explain what is going on and have him help set up the bed and get all of bedding and toys for his bed. Prepare a routine and stick to it. Each night if he isn't willing to sleep alone, say that is okay we will try tomorrow.
Well we might switch this weekend... have not decided yet... BIG DECISIONS... we don't have an issue with him wanting to sleep alone but I am kind of worried that if and when he does wake up at night he's going to forget that he has a "new" bed and try to stand and fall out... I have a rail and maybe he will be okay... guess we just have to try it and see how it goes...
good luck! let us know how it went
