Our 21 month old LO climbed out of her crib several times and for safety reasons we decided to switch her crib into a toddler bed. She watched us convert the crib and played in it that day and went to bed in there. We thought great! That was simple. 20 minutes after she went to sleep she screamed and came out of her room. I imagine she was having a nightmare as she was saying something about our dogs crate. We tried to put her back and sit with her to no avail. Eventually she fell asleep on the floor on her rug. We figured after a rough night back and forth to our bed we wouldn't push the toddler bed thing and allowed her to sleep on her floor with blankets as she requested.
So.. it's been 3 weeks and she won't go in the bed. We went out and she picked out a dora bed set and we read her big girl bed books and she still says no. " No bed. Sleep on the floor please". PArt of me feels like it's fine to let her sleep on the floor until she feels comfortable to transition to the toddler bed. I would like opinions though as to how you transitioned your kid, or if you feel like I should not set up a "bed" on the floor for her.
