yes, the day has come that he has decided to try to climb out of his crib. OH BOY we are doomed. I don’t want him in a toddler bed now. I was hoping we would make it until at least 2 before we had to worry about that. 16.5 months seems so young for a toddler bed. But a big boy bed is better than him trying to climb out of his crib and falling. YIKES, the thought of that scares me.
His Day started at 5 am. Time for 1st nap:: I put him in his crib. He acts like he is going to sleep then a few minutes later I hear the frustrated cry. I ignore it for a couple of minutes and then I go into his room and he looks at me with one leg up on the side of the crib and says “down”. I help him get his leg down I and lay him back down. Leave and moments later I hear “arrrrrg, down” followed by the frustrated squeal of a cry. I go in to help him again and as I started to repeat the process of putting his leg down he says “stop, up” At this point he is wide awake and I am exhausted.
A Long Day Ahead!!! When is the right age to start using a toddler bed?
