So I put my youngest in a toddler bed tonight for the first time. She isn't upset, but she is just laying there awake for the last 3 hours. Should I just leave her?

  • She's happy as a clam! She's just smiling. Not upset at all. I guess I've just never seen her like this before!

  • As long as she's happy, leave her. She's gettin used to her new digs, and she's probably excited to be in her new big girl bed (as well she should be!). As long as she's not getting out of bed and not upset, let her be.

  • Some babies like a little alone time just like you do. My dd will sit and play or sing even just cuddle with a stuffy, sometimes watch movies. I just let her go until she asked to get out. Gives me a break from chasing her and gives her a little space to be independent without getting into anything.
