We've been trying to get T to sleep in her big girl bed. It's not going so well. It all started on Thursday night. She woke up around 2am crying & having a fit. I put her light on & she had climbed out of the crib & was sitting on the floor shaking. We calmed her down, put her back in the crib & she ended up climbing out again. So that night she slept in the bed with us. Only the 2nd time ever that we've done that. She didn't sleep @ 1st, but finally ended up snoring. She won't sleep in the bed & think it's going to be a while. We're all very tired & cranky. She fell asleep on the floor a few times. Any suggestions for making things go more smoothly? I'm dreading bedtime. I don't think she'll be taking any naps anymore either.

Oh, I so remember when my kids transitioned into "Big" beds...haha! Maybe it'll help if you spend some time in the bed...not for sleeping, but playing & reading. Hopefully it'll only take a little while longer:)
BTW, your wedding picture is so sweet! I love the scenery:)

Ay Yi Yi, I remember those days.

I did the SuperNanny trick.....I would sit there beside the bed (being very quiet) and each night I would get further and further away.

Everytime they would come in the other room. I wouldn't say anything. I would just put them right back into the bed.

I hated those times. At least with a crib, you could trap them in it.

I hated this phase! It's worse than an infant I think because there is so much more effort on your part in the middle of the night.

Best of luck to you!

Oh boy, do I remember those days. My only (or best?) advice is to stick with it. Don't give up. It WILL get better as she gets used to the routine.

I wish I had better advice for you. It will get better. It has for us...after 2 years. Yep. 2 years of nightly visits and tantrums.
