On a whim yesterday afternoon, I decided to convert Colton crib to a toddler bed. There was no real reason for this. He is a great sleeper and goes down like a champ and rarely do we hear a peep out of him until morning. He wasn't trying to climb out of his crib or anything. When we go on our cruise, he will need to sleep in a twin bed, but that isn't for over a year.
I took the front rail off and put the tiny little bed rail up. My main concerns were 1) he was going to get up about 2 seconds after I put him down and roam around his room and get into the bathroom and 2) he was going to fall out of bed with such a small side rail. Last night went well. I heard him in the after I put him down singing and talking, but I don't think he got down and when I went to get him this morning, he hadn't fallen out. I know it has only the first night and he may be "braver" now, but here's to hoping it works out.
