  • Put him in bed and walk out, put him in bed and walk out, put him in bed and walk out, put him in bed and walk out......

    It took us about a week for the youngest. The older two just stayed in bed. lol They were 15 months.

  • The answer above mine from ticcledblue is great. Another thing that might help him adjust is to go to the store and let him choose a bedding set. My little boy was so excited when he choose his Spiderman set out and he slept in his big boy bed from then on... I would try it and see if it helps. :D Good luck and take care! :D

  • He might...but there will come a point when he's going to think it's a game. You have to be firm and serious. He's going to try to get your attention and make you smile...doggone puppy eyes...but you have to be firm and serious.

  • OH...and the crying isn't so much from you walking out the door as it is because you put him back in bed....
