  • does the crib turn into a toddler bed? or you can invest in one. They don't take up that much room, not much more than a crib (because it uses the same mattress.

  • what if she sleeps in between both of you just for the mean time, you 'll totally hear her like that, lol, just while you get her a toddler bed:)

  • Well I slept with my mom till I was 7 yrs old and seperating wasn't hard infact i'm not even close to her at all, she lives in another city far away from me and i'm just fine.

  • If she's getting too big for a crib I don't know that a toddler bed is the answer because it's the same size really. I mean, in what way is she too big? I saw that you asked another question about her not crawling yet, so I'm guessing she's not climbing out yet. I know many children who are in cribs until closer to three; when we visit my family, my daughter sleep in a crib that is converted to a toddler bed (the one side comes off to convert it) and she fits in it just fine, she is 36 months and rather tall for her age.

  • Yeah toriandgrace, thats true, my son sleeps in a toddler bed right now and he's 3 but he hardly fits in there anymore, hes so tall... that we're thinking of getting him a twin bed already.

  • Because of your space trouble I would turn the living to a portable nursery at night, so you fold things up when needed a place to sit ...
