Poll Discussion Post: Crib to Bed Transition


Time for a poll on the Crib to Bed transition. Here are the questions:

  1. What age did you first move your child from crib to bed?
  2. In your opinion, was that a good age?
  3. If not, do you think it should have been done younger or older?
  4. How did you prepare your child for the transition?
  5. What kind of rules did you set for the transition?
  6. Did your child stay in bed at the transition, or did your child test limits a get out of bed?
  7. If your child tested limits, what things did you do that helped your child stay in bed?
  8. Was there disruption to normal sleep patterns at the transition?
  9. How long did it take your child to sleep as normal in the “big bed”?
  10. Any words of wisdom? Advice?

You can answer for each child you have that has made the transition.
