i'm asking for help again. stone has gotten to the point where he can climb out of his crib. he's quite good at it (i may have given birth to a monkey...he's THAT good at climbing). so saturday night he wouldn't stay in his crib, and my worry wasn't really that he was getting out and playing in his room, but that once he was ready to sleep he couldn't get back into his bed....so i made josh take the fron rail off the crib and we turned it into a toddler bed (i was really sad about this). it was a bit of a rough night...but we finally got him into a deep sleep at 2 am and he stayed asleep till 8. not too awful right? well then naptime came....stone is down to one nap a day now so when that once nap comes...he needs it. well, there was no napping in the "big boy bed". he was too excited to play in his room. last night went much better (i think because he was so exausted)...we got him to sleep at 10...and he stayed asleep till we had to get him up this morning. so my question to you smart, experienced moms out there is this....any tips on getting a sweet little one to sleep in a toddler bed? or is this just something that, like so many other things with kids, has to come with time? and....my mom, stone and i are going out of town this weekend (we get to go see seth! yay!), so any tips on staying in a hotel with a toddler that has never slept in bed with his mamma? help me!
