Any of you moms have any advice on the best way to switch my son from his crib to a toddler bed. Hes almost 2 1/2. He already fights going to bed some nights, and wont sleep anywhere but in his crib. But we are moving out of state in a few weeks and I need to get him switched before we move because the crib was borrowed. I have baby gates and everything, I just want to make this as smooth as possible with all of the other changes coming up. Any advice?Answer Question

My son just switched to a toddler bed last month (at 19 months) because he kept climbing out of his crib, and we felt he might injure himself. Honestly, the first three nights were the worst. The first night I got him to sleep first, then put him in the toddler bed so he woke up in it. The second night I put him in there as he was almost asleep. He got up and cried, and we had to let him CIO. He fell asleep (on the bed) after about 15 minutes. The third night was a repeat of the second night, but he fell asleep on the floor and the crying only lasted about 5 minutes. Since then he's been excellent about going to sleep on his bed (or on his floor and being transferred to his bed before I go to sleep).
