Quoting SleepyBaby401:" thank you ladies ! your really making me feel better about my decision ( : my mom says its a bad idea , i think its a good idea, the sooner the better. shes going to be in a bed sooner or later. "
you will both do great! my son is 100% crazy. He runs and runs and runs from 7 am until we put him in bed at night (ppl actually ask me as a joke if hes like that all the time...and he really is lol)...so when he realized he had freedom to get out of bed when he wanted, he took full advantage. It took about a week of the Supernanny technique of only tucking him in once and then the first time he comes out we explained that it was bedtime etc and if he came out anymore we just pick him up without saying a word and put him back in bed. Sometimes it lasted over an hour but after about a week he was perfect and never came out. Now during the day he tells me "I Sleep" and he takes his blankie and puts himself for naps lol. Also, we didn't put him in a toddler bed, we just moved him into a single. We bought him one that has a trundle (pull out bed underneath) and as of this week it has been the best purchase i've ever made. He has croup at the moment and 2 nights I needed to sleep in his room to monitor him quite closely. At 26 weeks pregnant, I was thankful for that bed hahahaha. sorry this was so long!
