This morning we awoke to Little One crying in his bed - "kicx it! Kicx It!" (fix it, fix it) as one of the corners of his crib totally caved in towards the floor - the crib is broken. We have been wanting to make the transition from crib to bed - and it looks like today is the day. We have a "Big boy room" (complete with a twin bed) all set up for him - and he loves to be in there and play - but will have nothing to do with it when it comes to sleeping. He is very attached to his crib. Every time we have tried taking a nap in the big boy bed - he ends up crying if I'm not there with him. If I leave him in there and shut the door, he stands at the door and cries and screams "Mama"!I don't want him to get attached with me lying down with him, and I don't want the transition to be a traumatic experience. Right now, bed time is one of our most pleasant times of the day, and don't really want to lose that.
Does anyone have some advice? How have you made the transition from the crib to the big bed?
