Crib To Bed Transition

What the hell were we thinking? Giving toddler twins who haven’t reached their 3rd birthday yet this newfound freedom? Did we make a mistake and start them too early or will they get used to the transition from crib to bed?

We asked ourselves all these questions and decided to remove the crib bars and turn their Stokke Cribs into toddler beds………..reluctantly.

Toddler Beds

Removing the crib bars meant removing G&O’s bedtime boundaries. It’s only been a few weeks and boy have they taken advantage of their recently discovered freedom. They are playing the “jack-in-the-box” game with us, popping out of bed every time we turn our backs and close their bedroom door. We hear them talk to one another, crack up in laughter, sometimes argue (girls!) and even walk over to our room at the wee hours of the night. Sleep the last couple of weeks has been….choppy…..to say the least.

This transition to feel fully comfortable in their beds will probably take a few more weeks and for the time being, we’ll need to stay disciplined and continue to walk them back to their room and put them to bed as many times as needed.

Patience daddy, patience.

    Yo me vi obligada a tomar la decisión de pasar a mi hijo a la cama cuando a los 2 años empezó a salirse solo de la cuna y, por miedo a una mala caida, tuve que hacerlo . Pero aún extraño esos días de cuna, cuando el se dormía y se quedaba ahí solito. Esa libertad no tiene vuelta atras! Por un año volvía a llevarlo a su cama cuantas veces fuera necesario pero ni dormía el ni dormía yo. Así que dije no mas, si se pasa a la madrugada seguimos durmiendo todos felices. No es lo ideal pero por mi sanidad es lo mejor. Ojala tus twins se adapten a este nuevo proceso pronto pero todo hay que admitirlo: nada mas delicioso para ellos que dormir con los papas 😊

      Definitivamente no es facil pero lo que funciona para los padres para mantener la paz es lo importante. Como las nuestras son twins, mutuamente se mantienen compañía. Además, 2 bebés en una cama con papá y mamá realmente no nos permiten dormir cómodamente a pesar de que nos gusta despertarnos con ellas ahi en la cama. jaja
