from the time hudson was about 2 months old till he was 13 months old we lived with tanner's parents. we had one bedroom we shared. so, hudson has always slept in our room.
sometimes he would be in his own bed, i could look over and peek at him. if he got up in the middle of the night she just said "mamamamama" till i woke up and could cuddle him back to sleep.
other times we would co-sleep the whole night.
and let me just say, i love everything about co-sleeping. and this post is not about co-sleeping. so please, no anti co-sleeping comments.
once we got our new home, we talked about putting hudson in his own room. but this proved to be a very
big challenge. it means completely sleep training our 19 month old! not only is hudson [and his momma] very much used to being in the same room at night, he is also not at all used to his crib.
I wish I could start with his nap, and get him used to his crib that way.
but hudson goes to both grandmas while I work so he is at a different house every day.
speaking of work, I work 6 and sometimes 7 days a week first thing in the morning.
so its also a matter of do I really want to be up all night before work for a week or more straight?
and to top off all the reasons i have yet to switch him to his room is the fact that he can climb out of his crib
and that is all i need,
hudson to wake up in the middle of the night, be half awake and try to climb out only to fall on his head
all while im sleeping away and cant hear him.
Hudsons sleep schedule now is pretty much the same..give or take some nights.
he goes to bed between 9-930 and will sleep till around 5-6
then he comes into bed with us and cuddle till i get up at 630
lately though, me and the hubby have been talking and we think were ready to move him to his room
I know this will be a struggle so I want to make this as fun as I can and get him really excited
I am trying to talk the husband into getting a new "big boy toddler bed"
I have looked at just the normal beds
but I have also been looking at some car beds
he is obsessed with cars and I think he would absolutely love one
plus were just getting a toddler size so its cheaper then a twin size car bed
im just worried he would wake up and wonder the house in the middle of the night
is that even likely?
is 18 months to young to move into a big boy bed?
are there any tricks or other ways to get little man excited?
any advice would be very much appreciated.
this is the car bed I was thinking of getting
or do I go for something like these
