Switching from a crib to toddler bed!.. Questions!*what happend the first night*EDITED

Posted by   + Show Post

 Its my sons first night sleeping in his toddler bed..

He was super excited for his bed and so am I, hes 17 months old and started to climb everything so i did it!!!

Im so nervous, im scared hes going to roll out.i pushed up a pillow to hopefully keep him more safe . I also layed the floor with stuftanimals. I went in a half hour later and he got out of his bed and pulled my sheets off my bed and went back in his bed. LMAO it was so funny!!!! ahh he so grown up. No more baby passing out on my chest. :( no more baby. lol

:P I cant beleive how fast time goes by with kids. its bitter sweet.

I miss my baby who wants to cuddle but i also love to see him grow,

i just had to tell my feelings. bouncing mom


Ok so the first night ***PICS********

So i think i can say is that the first night was a success. He woke me up so nicely this morning. so cute

But putting him down for his nap wasnt easy..he kept getting out and trying to play..

and then tonight he wasn't hard to put down but he wokeup  crying like he was scared or something... not sure if he is having nightmares, so i sat with DS until he fell asleep which was about 20 min...

NOW my questions are..What was it like transitioning your kids into toddler bed?? Was it hard? Can 17 month olds get nightmares? Is this just him getting used to his new bed??

What did you have to do? and is rubbing his back till he falls asleep right??

Thanks guys!

With DD it was kind of hard, she never wanted to stay in, but I just made her keep getting back in bed, and eventually she did (about a week)
