Well, for us, this little twist on Works for me Wednesday is just in time. My one-and-a-half year old is occupying our crib and I was hoping to avoid buying a second crib. She's smart (I realize just about everyone would say this about their child), so the transition to the toddler bed quickly became a game. For about a week, she did well, but then it started taking longer and longer to put her down, up to an hour and a half (before she was going down in her crib in about 5 minutes, no joke). She'd play all kinds of games making bedtime frustrating and exhausting for me and by the end she was going to sleep in tears. We only tried this for a couple weeks.
So, what works for you? At what age did you start kids in the toddler bed? Should I just go buy another crib? (The baby is gonna need to be in a crib in the next few weeks.) Do you have any success tips for helping her stay in her bed?
I'd love to hear it, and I'll certainly let you know how it turns out.
