We are using his dad's old childhood bed. We have told him that this was "a big boy bed" and he seemed excited about it. He's also slept in a bed before when we were on vacation but that was a couple of months ago. He did well at that time but he could have just been exhausted from our travels. I am hoping that with our frequent trips, he has become accustomed to sleeping in different surroundings. We put all of his blankets on the crib (he sleeps with 5 specific blankets) in the hopes it makes the transition easier. He looks tiny on the twin mattress and hope he doesn't move around too much overnight. I also gave him a pillow for the first time which he seems to really like.
He's also been sleeping through the night so I hope that continues with the transition. Tonight, he fell asleep relatively easily. I had to sit next to his bed until he fell asleep and kept checking to make sure I was there. I don't want to make that a habit so any suggestions you have to make the transition easier would be greatly appreciated! I am hoping he stays asleep through the night and we are not awakened by a toddler in our bedroom. Wish us luck!
