One of the hardest things about transitioning your child from a crib to a toddler bed is figuring out how to keep your child in bed all night long. We struggled with this for a little while when my daughter was younger but there were a few tricks that we used when our toddler used to climb out of bed.
My daughter is now four years old and sleeps in her big girl bed all night long. I do make an exception when she is sick or had a nightmare. I want her to feel safe in her room and not afraid, because then we will be right back where we started.
