  • My daughter napped in her own bed, so I think that the transition was easier. We waited until she was no longer waking to eat during the night. For the next week, we put her in her bed after she fell asleep to get her used to always waking up in her own bed. Then we put her to bed in her own bed; she whined, but didn't howl.

  • My son still wakes every three or four hours at night. I am so ready to have the bed time as mine and my husbands! We have no time together at all!
