A Milestone UPDATE
Laura is doing sooo good in her bed. She is staying in it all night long and taking naps. We rarely have to use the spanking spoon to reinforce staying in her bed. I'm very proud of her.
Thanks for all the tips. Now, it is time to potty train....We are going to start when we get back from our cruise.
Laura has officially graduated from her crib. I shed a few tears as the realization that she is now a big girl set in.
She did so great! We only had to go back and tell her to get back in her bed twice. She didn't really fall asleep until almost 10 p.m., but she did sleep all night. Of course, she was up bright and early this morning despite a late night.
She also went down well for her nap with only two reminders to get in her bed! I was a bit surprised but pleased it wasn't a huge battle. The video monitor has been the best investment, especially as she gets older and we want to watch her when the door is shut. I'm sure she is wondering how we know when she gets out of her bed and we respond so quickly. Jim says we are gonna keep it up till she is a teenager!
I welcome any strategies you used for making the transition from crib to bed.
