We just switched my son (almost 2) to a big bed from his crib ... last night I ended up laying down with him until he fell asleep, and then he slept through the night until 5:15 this morning (usually he sleeps until 6:30/7:00) I had him stay in there and he did fall back asleep but then the dog woke him up about 25 minutes later, so I let him get out of his room. Nap time he cried for 15/20 min and then fell asleep ... would you just let him get out of his room when he wakes up, or try to stick to his normal routine of times? Any advice welcome, thanks!!Answer Question

Keep him on his normal routine. If he's afraid of falling out of bed you can either move the mattress to the floor or get a side netting/rail to help him stay in bed.
We had one simiar to this that just folded down that was just plain white that got broken by a big brother that couldn't keep his hands off.
Then we got one like this that will tuck away between the mattress and boxsprings. Again the big brother couldn't kee his hands off and she wound up falling out of bed and breaking her collar bone one day.
There is also this if his bed is not against a wall.
