  • Don't put the crib back up. My daughter was excited at first, then got scared. I took her shopping and let her pick out her own toddler bed set and let her pick out a night light. I also put a child proof thing on her door from the inside so she can't get out( her room is right next to mine and I can hear everything). Just be consistant and if he gets up put him back. If you let him into your bed he will realize if he cries enough he can get what he wants. Good luck and message me if you need any more advice!
