Crib Chronicles

last summer, when we FIRST tried giving up the crib

So last night Genevieve agreed (again) to try sleeping with her crib converted into a toddler bed. Well, so to speak: she let Christopher take the front rail off the crib, but for some reason she refuses to give up the back rail, which is against the wall. Of course this makes no sense (the wall already serves as a barrier), but whatever. Overnight she woke up calling for us five times because her quilt had fallen off her bed onto the floor and she was cold.

Needless to say, the crib rail is back on (at least until summer when piles of covers aren't as necessary). I am certainly not going to be awakened half a dozen times per night in the pursuit of giving up the crib. Are you kidding me? Nothing is that important! Am I right, fellow mamas?!

You are VERY right! Not worth it at all.

100% agree. If G has no desire to leave her crib, don't bother. Totally not worth losing sleep over (figuratively and literally).

(Now, if you were having another child and, say, needed said crib, that would be a different situation.)

Don't sweat it! Our youngest slept on the couch in the living room for almost two years (at the same age as your little gal). Weird, but it worked.
