my son will be 3 in september and my husband and i recently bought a toddler bed for our son. he refuses to sleep in it. We try to work with him, but it doesn't do anything. We are also in the midst of potty training him, do you think this is to much pressure to be putting on a 2 year old?? HELP!

hii, i have a tw0 years old baby , and yes this is tooo much. start with what matters u the most , which  i think start with the bed.

it will take about a week for him to get used but the most important thing that u have to be determined to do it, because our children are not stupied they are soo clever, and he has to fell that u r determined to do it.

im telling u this because i went through this experience 3 months ago.

during the day time go to the new bed with him and keep saying"wow , look how beautiful this bed is", try to put stickers of trains, car, sun, moon, or any cartoon character he likes over the bad, beleive this trick works, and when it is bed time , take him with his favaurite book and start reading itto him, and stay with him till he sleeps.


and remember again , to be determined.
