We started my son in a toddler bed a few days ago. We just moved, and with a baby due in a bout 5 months and my 36" son popping out of his crib(yes, he's a biggin), we figured we'd give it a shot! At night he's doing great because it's dark and he's used to a strict routine. Unfortunately, during the day it's not so great:/ We have a little routine before naptime, but unless I block the easy exit from his bed, he gets out and plays/ cries until I get him... then we start the routine of putting him back in his bed over and over again. Any suggestions? He's the kind of kid who will stay up all day and be miserable rather than go to sleep on his own.
