So we have been attempting to get the baby out of the bed. Here is what we tried:
The baby’s crib converts into a toddler bed by taking one of the three sides off the crib. Instead of dropping the mattress, we left it elevated at bed level to create a sort of extension of our bed. To keep baby safe, we put in a guard rail (bed bug bumpers). The idea was to put baby in his own space. So I plopped him there and wouldn’t you know it, I missed him being close. It seems baby isn’t the only one in need of sleep training.
Yesterday we had a baby sitter come watch the baby so I put the fourth side back on the crib. Hopefully he will be sleeping in there soon.
