I know this sounds crazy but I'm scared to switch my son who's 2 and 8 months into a toddler bed. He is very active and I don't think he would stay in the toddler bed when it's bed time. I work part time (because I have to not because I want to) and when I'm not at work all my other time is devoted to my son it's me and him all the time. I love him soooo much. And this may sound selfish but after he goes to bed (between 7:30-8:00) it's MY TIME I want him in bed. Even though he sleeps awesome in his crib I'm afraid If I swtch him into his toddler bed he won't stay there long enough to fall asleep. It's hard enough getting him to sit in a chair for a 2 minute time out when he needs to be disciplined. I'm also scared he will get up in the middle of the night and get into mischief. Maybe I've babied him to much up until this point he very rarely listens to me when I tell him to do something even though I try to be consistent with him.
