Yesterday we sold our crib and got one that converts to a toddler bed. We have a toddler bed but it is so different looking from Maddie's crib that she is scared to use it. We tried last night (without any expectations) to have Maddie sleep in her new Big Girl Bed and she did wonderfully. She didn't get up once and she even slept in until 6:00 (she has been getting up at 4:45am. I was so surprised by how well she did. And then today when I went to put her down for her nap I thought there may be some issues, but she did wonderful again. Not a peep from her and she is sleeping (see pictures). Amazing. I am so happy that the transition went well. I don't doubt that there will be some issues in the future, but I cannot believe how much success we have already had. Maddie is a very particular sleeper...does not like to sleep when travelling, does not like to sleep anywhere but her own bed, must have music, must have lankie, bay and lulie (Blankie, Bear and Lovie). We have gate just outside of her door, so if she does get up and want to wonder, the only place she can wonder to is our room. This is going to be so nice for travelling, because as it is now, we have to pack to pack n plays...and by the time we get those in the car there isn't much room for anything else.
