Whatever possessed me to think switching to toddler beds was a good idea??? Going to bed used to be so nice. They would lay down in their cribs and go to sleep pretty fast, or at least lay quietly. Yesterday we decided to switch to toddler beds. It's really not much different from the crib. Same bed, just no side railing. But to the girls, it is totally different.
Night 1, M was up partying and jumping on her bed. I went in and laid with them for about an hour and they fell asleep. Then at 3 am, M woke up and was waking S up. I got them to lay quietly and got about 1 more hour of sleep before they were up for the day.
Nap day 1- I was super tired and luckily hubby let me nap. The girls did not nap, so he put them in the play room, which right now is our spare bedroom. They played until they both finally passed out on the bed and slept for about an hour.
Night 2- I put them to bed early since they were SO tired. 6 pm. S is pretty good with the bed. She will lay in it and not really get up. M is having difficulty. I've been in there now I don't know how many times. I even tried laying in there with them, but M was just jumping on me and laughing. They are now quiet and both laying on the floor. Hopefully they fall asleep, and stay asleep!!
Word of advice- put off changing to a toddler bed AS LONG AS YOU CAN!!!! If I just had 1 to deal with it would be easier I think. Don't rush moving to a bed. If they are not climbing out, be happy they are still in cribs!
