Have you ever climbed into your toddler's bed with them?
We've converted our son's crib into his toddler bed with the side rail fully removed and a guard rail in its place that we remove during day and put back for night time.
Very often my toddler wants me to either sit on bed to read stories or lay down next to him as he's falling asleep at night. I actually love doing it, because it just makes the whole nighttime process a lot smoother and to be honest, I'm exhausted too so its great to lay down for 15 mins or so until he's asleep.
My question is, is it safe? Does anyone else do this? I'm sure I'm over the crib weight limits, so how risky is it that the crib might break? His crib has been very sturdy this whole time and it doesn't give any signs of breaking when i lay on it - its been as sturdy as our own adult bed.
I've also found a few videos online of parents climbing into their baby's cribs.
Anyone have any stories or has done this? Would love to know I'm not the only one!
