We switched our 15 month old to a toddler bed a little over 2 weeks ago. It was a crib but it converts to a day bed with a toddler rail. He falls asleep no problem and seems to like it. He also understands to stay on the bed when i tuck him in. Problem is he falls out of it at least once a night. We have a 2nd mattress to break his fall but he is so upset to be woke up out of a deep sleep. I have to get up comfort him for a bit then tuck him in again. Is this completely normal at first or should we put the crib side back on his bed and try again in a couple months?
We are expecting our 2nd child in January so we wanted to switch him either before the baby gets here or a couple months after. No hurry though we are getting another crib for the new baby and he will be in a bassinet for a while at first.
