big boy bed night #1

Attempted the big boy bed for the first time overnight last night.

7:15- put to bed. Went down great.
8:55- woke up and cried for a few minutes
9:15- cried for a few minutes (just as I had started drifting back to sleep)
2:15- cried for a few minutes (lots of "down pees!")
4:45- cried for longer than a "few minutes" b/c he was up for good. :(

Wow. This is going to be a long and possibly very cranky day. I guess I can be thankful that he never got out of bed, so I never had to get up and go into his room. But still...I'm a little tired.

Well, actually 9:15 to 2:15 to 4:45 is not bad, I guess, for the first night. How is he going with his naps in the bed?

I love how your mom always sees the positive : )

Is there a reason he needs to trade his crib in? I mean I know you are due in May - could you borrow a crib? Maybe you dont have this problem but the crib allowed me the peace of mind knowing my kids were actaully in it and not out and about while I was in bed asleep. It also gave me more time to get ready in the morning - ha!

oh .. gosh .. no bueno. :(

well, im curious to hear if it improves over the next few nights. so did you go into his room each time he woke & cried, or did you just wait and see if he fell back asleep?

i cannot imagine how tired you are!! ug.
