Guess Who's in a...

... toddler bed now! Yep, our Rach. We made the transition a little earlier than I normally would for my babies, but when we saw this in the consignment store yesterday I thought it would be a good idea. She started climbing on it and acting like she wanted it, so it must've been meant to be! Besides, with Anthony right on her tail she's having to do everything a little faster.

We demolished the crib tonight, and the plan is to move Anthony into the playpen in the boys' room. He is pretty much sleeping through the night now, but once again with my last baby I am just a little more hesitant to cut the apron strings. If only I could get on board with his 7:30 bed time I'd be getting a full eight hours too!

To be honest I'll be curious to see how this works out... especially at nap time. I have never had success with getting my kids to take naps once they move out of their crib, but Rachel is definitely not ready to give up naps yet. I dread the whole in-and-out-of-bed game, but hopefully she'll be obedient. I don't think she can open her door handle, so that will help. I am open to any advice on keeping young'ins in their beds!


  1. I have no advice! I have created my own monster!! He will nap, but only in my bed and he still sleeps with us. Truthfully neither of us care that he is in our bed, so we really haven't tried to move him out. I wish you all the luck!

  2. The only success I have had is luck and laying next to them. Mostly the latter. Since she is used to sleeping in her own bed, it should be better.

  3. This girl stayed in her bed all night and took a long nap today. I think we're good!
