Zane has always been a relatively peaceful sleeper in his crib. However, lately I have been seeing him try to monkey climb his way out if his crib. I am sure if you have kids, you could relate in one form or another. While I know it won’t be long until he transitions to a big boy bed, I know that I am just not ready yet. He is my baby after all!
My husband and I debate when we should switch him over to a big boy bed. The problem is we would need to go out and buy a brand new bed at places like AHF Furniture. I figure if we could get a few more months out of his crib, it would be easier to transition him to the bed.
With Hayley, we transitioned her at 3 years, 2 months. I felt it was the perfect age. She was old enough that she didn’t try to escape and come in our room at all hours of the night. It was really such a simple transition. Sure, we had one or two nights for her to get used to it, but after that, it was smooth sailing.
Zane, however, is 2 and I am pretty sure he will try to escape all night long. I am scared! My husband thinks it won’t be too bad, and that I am just working myself up. Who knows, right? Maybe, having independence will be a good thing for him. He won’t need to yell out for me, when he needs something. He will be able to get it himself. That is a definite advantage.
So, if you have little ones, when did you transition them? I would love to hear opinions!
