A couple nights ago, after 45 minutes of crying, I got her out of her crib and not so gently plopped her on Ava's bed. She laid there and stopped crying. I asked he if she wanted to sleep in Ava's bed, and she said yes. So I covered her up, put a pillow on the edge and walked out. Not one more peep...
Today we took out the crib and put in the toddler bed. I am excited and afraid. When we did the switch with Ava it was easy. We told her she had to stay in her bed and she did. Ava is our rule abiding child, she never gets out of her bed. However Scarlett is our rule breaking child so I am guessing it will not go as smoothly. I expect her to get out of bed about 30 times and appear in our room hourly through out the night. I plan to stand firm and walk her back in each and every time.
I hope this is the answer to the sleepless nights. It could go either way.
