Hush Little Baby.....

Two nights ago we finally moved Noah from his crib into his "big boy bed." It's of course a little sooner then I wanted but we need to put Audrey in the crib...I can't sleep with all her little baby noises. We tried the SuperNanny method, also suggested by Dr. Weissbluth who wrote Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child. We knew it wasn't going to be easy especially since he could get out, but I am a believer. The first night he got out of bed 26 times in 30 minutes, but after 30 minutes he was out for the night. He even went back into his old room and pointed to his crib. The second night he got out of bed 4 times and tonight it was 4 times....both within about 3-4 minutes. So after a few minutes we had a sleeping little boy all cuddled up in his truck bed.

You have given me renewed hope!! We are a little aprehensive about taking that step with Mckenna, but will have to pretty soon. I am glad it is going so well for you guys. If Mckenna doesnt do soo well we'll just send her your way!LOL!

That is crazy! I can't believe how much they get out of bed. :) It sounds like he will catch on though. I've heard that book is amazing.

Ah! Moving them to a big bed is hard. It was so hard with Avery and she looked so little compared to the big bed. Overall it sounds like it is going pretty good. Good luck...
