My son is 22 months, I am expecting a new baby in may. and I feel my first is ready to upgrade the bed. so I would like this transition to be over by may. is this a realistic goal? My son goes down every night at 8. and doesn't cry but he usually lays there and talks and messes around for 45-60 mins before going to bed.he does the same during nap time. he sleeps all night. doesn't wake up crying and he usually wakes in the morning between 7-8. I am wondering if this is going to be a problem. Idk if he will try to get out to play or not i assume so. and he can open doors, so how do i keep him in there so he knows i mean business? He doesn't have many toys in his room, their all in the play room, but he does have books. will this be a problem?
any tips of how i can get him to transition smoothly? what are your experiences? how long did it take for your toddler to start sleeping normal again? and do they sleep more or less? do they still nap?
