Cage him!!

Yes, I just wrote "cage him" in my title and I absolutely mean JUDE!!  

Child - you are not ready for a BIG BOY BED!  Errr...your PARENTS are not ready for you to be in a big boy bed yet!!  Too many changes for us all.  

Jude climbed out of his crib at my parents today during nap time.  He didn't fall or get hurt so it is now a game.  He is asleep in his crib now in his room - here's to hoping that was just a fluke and he will be in his CAGE, I mean crib for a while longer.  If not, this household will not be sleeping for a long time!!

Baby proofing is on - so much to consider in the nursery now.  Could be a fun weekend.  

When did your kids transition to a big kid bed?

Jude is 2 years and 2 months old.  Oy!!!

  1. My daughter was trying to climb out of her crib at 1 year old. She was an early walker, so we transitioned her to a big girl bed at 1. She is great with it. Actually I think it was easier to switch her to that than from her bassinet to crib. :/ Good luck.

    1. The thing I am so worried about is he sharing a room with the new baby coming in October. Was hoping the crib would keep him contained for a while.

    2. Will baby girl stay in your room in the beginning? I plan to have Rex and Pilot share a room but not until Pilot is sleeping through the night. If you did that then Jude would probably be big boy bed trained by then and it might not be an issue.

    3. Well we never really wanted a baby in our room for sleep so we are going to try the crib first for the baby but we will see how Jude and the baby do first. We will see. The big boy bed issue might change our plans and wants! lol

  3. Oh my! I'm positive if we had a 'traditional' bumper that's thick and not the thin breathable one Mackenzie would be climbing out of her crib.
    Good luck, Id have trouble sleeping if that happened.

  4. We moved Rex at 18 months and I loved it! Plus it really helped with potty training because he could come and get me when he had to go. I love having Rex in a bed however Jude has a completely different personality than Rex so I'm not sure that I would have those feeling if Rex was so full of energy instead of laid back. We also put up a baby gate at his door so he couldn't wonder the house by himself and left some quiet toys in his room so if he got up before we were ready he would quietly play until we got up or until he decided it was time to wake us up by being loud. Good luck!

    1. YEah, Jude is a crazy man as you have seen, pretty sure he would go and make himself a snack instead of reading a book! lol WE will see what happens!

  5. My kiddos were all about 18-20 months when they moved into a toddler bed. We keep books in their room (they all share one bedroom), but honestly we've never had a problem with them wandering around when they should be sleeping. If they do wake up, they come straight to our room and wake us. Sadie likes to stand right by my face and whisper "water" until my eyes pop open. Ha!

  6. Hoping it was a fluke! Its one of my biggest concerns for lexie :( our bedrooms upstairs hers is down and there's no war to baby gate the top of the stairs so for now she naps on her crib an sleeps upstairs on her pnp (our room is U shapes with a 1/4 bath on the middle) she's on one side were on the other!

  7. I transitioned Hayley at 3 years 4 months. I tried before that but it was very hard and not worth it! Honestly I know you don't want to hear this, but if they climb out and it is not a fluke, I would move him. Most people never had a problem doing the switch!

  8. We did if for both kids at 2 and 1/2! Out of necessity for child one (needed the crib for child 2), and for child 2 did it for safety (was climbing out)!!!

  9. 20 months. He still thinks he is confined when he wakes up! I have to go "get him out." it might be an easier transition than you think!
