Time for big boy bed 25.5 months
« on: September 12, 2018, 00:55:12 am »
So my lo the past 2-3 nights When itís time for bed starts crying and wonít go in his crib. Iím with the older one in his room putting him to bed and my husband puts the little one to sleep. Every night this is our routine. So we decided to start doing our story time together the four of us on the empty bottom bunk in my older sons room. The lo loves this but still doesnít want to go in his crib to sleep. He even went into our bed and under covers and got so upset when we said no no itís time for bed in your own room. Tonight we actually tried letting him sleep on the bottom bunk with his brother and he laid there for a while but then started to cry. Not sure if itís just a new bedtime anxiety or if heís ready for his own big boy bed in his own room. Any suggestions ?

Anyone have any tips on the transition? First night did Great slept through last night woke twice during the night crying. Mustíve been disoriented or maybe cold because he kicked blankets off. We lay with him in or next to crib at night but itís taking him forever to fall asleep. Last night was 10pm! And he wasnít up crying before 7 am. He gets right in at night but just lays there and if you go to leave he gets upset and asks me to stay.

Hi it sounds more like separation anxiety than the bed being an issue. If you want to leave him in the bed then prob just try a bit of GW?

My DS2 is 3 in jan and wonít entertain big bed he screamed to have cot back so heís back in his cot....thereís no rush so if you feel heís not ready pop him back in x
