Toddler Talk Thursday was created as a place for moms and dads of toddlers to come together over a weekly topic and share ideas, go-to toys, or products. It is a great way to meet other parents of toddlers. Each week the topic will be different; we invite you to link up, share your weekly Toddler Talk!!
Each week the hosts will travel around to each blog to see what topic your suggest for the following week. If we choose your topic – you will be our featured blog.
Keep the GREAT suggestions coming. We have an on-going list we will choose from each week. Some topics are ones we have done in the past – but that doesn’t mean we won’t revisit them!!
In order to qualify for this you need to blog about this week’s topic, and follow the hosts. Please do not link up past posts or non-toddler talk posts.
And the end of your post – suggest a topic for next week.
Comments letting us know you are participating are always great too. If we choose your blog, we will link back to your post the following week.
This week’s featured Blog is 3 Princess Academy who suggested this week’s topic: Making the switch from crib to bed/toddler bed.
The day that Baybah figured out he could jump out of the crib (June 12th), it was the end of the crib for him. He would not even stay in it for a minute before he would climb out. We knew it was time to move him up to a big boy bed. Plus, everyone told us that once we moved him in one he would want to stay in it. Not our Baybah.
Bedtime starts around 8ish, and depending on the evening, can take hours for him to finally stay in his room and go to sleep. We do our bedtime routine, kiss him goodnight, and then about 10 minutes later we him run across the hallway into our bedroom. This will happen over, and over again. We have been doing the Super Nanny trick, but it really has not helped us. She says that once they get out of bed, go in the room, do not give eye contact or talk, put them back in bed, and then repeat if needed. Some nights it only takes a couple of times of us doing that, other nights like I said, it can take hours.
We have even tried to put a baby gate on his door so he will stay in his room and hopefully go back into his bed. But I am sure you guessed it, this is what happens:
Any advice for a Mama that wants her once was a good sleeper to stay in his big boy bed?!!!
