Transition to a Toddler Bed: Take 2

After a very unsuccessful bedtime last night, I realized that there was just no way to get O to see the benefits of staying in his crib.  So I gave up, climbed to the attic, dragged down the conversion kit, and I no longer have any cribs in my house.  (sob)

He was super excited to hear that he wold have a "big boy bed", but kept insisting, "new orange bed!" (Maybe I shouldn't have shown his the pics of Amy's kid's bed...)  Since it was already past bedtime, I was hoping the conversion would be quick and possible with just one adult & two small helpers people.

JD was a helpful screw counter.
It was easy and quick to convert the bed, and O didn't seem to mind the lack of orange (Grandma is getting him some awesome orange bedding for his birthday.)

In the end, the night was pretty much a success.  There were a few minutes of O knocking on his door to get out, but he made his way back to his bed and fell asleep faster than I expected.  I did, however, check on him before I went to bed and saw him sleeping like this- very similar to the antics his brother pulled, but more uncomfortable than comical.

I did pick him up and tuck him in after I took pictures.
I was hoping I could put off this transition until after we adjusted into our work/day care routine, but this kid works on his own schedule.  Hopefully today's nap will happen, because I'm looking forward to taking one myself!

  2. Did you ever experience something like you want to travel but cannot do that due to the worry about where and how your baby will sleep while traveling? This is the common problem for the parents who have infants or rising toddlers. Just for this reason, most of the parents completely change their lifestyle and stop traveling outside when they’re blessed with children. But, this is not an expected incident for anybody. Instead, they deserve to enjoy every moment of their time with the newborn babies or toddlers. Taking help from a portable bed like Regalo My Cot Portable Toddler Bed can be a brilliant solution in this regard.
