  • We just put up our sons bed 3 days ago. The first night he laid in it for about 10 minutes watching Pooh and then came out and said "K DAD NIGHT NIGHT" and brought DH in the room with him where he turned off the tv turned on his nightlight and tried to climb in his crib. Night 2 we put on Pooh again and he climbed in and about 30 min later we went to check on him and he was fast asleep. Til 4am when he woke up and crawled in bed with us. Tonight he insisted DH went Night Night with him and is sleeping now. (I was kicked out of the room and got sucked into the CM vortex for a few hours now lol) Good luck. BTW our son is almost 2 (didn't know if that mattered at all)

  • First, take down the crib. Don't give her a choice.

    She might surprise you, actually. i thought my boys would fight it, but they took right to it!
