  1. Ford is so ridiculously adorable, oh my goodness. My son did the same thing. I went from crib, to toddler bed, and now a regular twin bed because he continued to keep trying to climb the sides of the toddler bed and that was just too dangerous. He doesn't try any risky moves in a twin and he's not even three yet!

  2. I don't know what the "right" advice is, but we just waited it out! I just made sure he consistently was put down in his bed for naps and nighttime, and one night he started sleeping through the night without any issues! Good luck!

  3. I actually remember my Dad taking apart my crib. I know it sounds crazy, to remember something that long ago. But when I got into a "big girl" bed, I was soooo sad about it. When my crib was taken apart, I think I actually started to cry

  4. I did the exact same thing XD
    I made my Dad sleep on the floor and when he fell asleep i got up and told my mum
    'Its okay now Mummy ! We can boil the kettle , Daddys asleep !' xxx

  5. I would SERIOUSLY consider the Alarm clock. My Mom bought one from Amazon for my sister and set it for 6. My sister used to go through 2 my mom and dads room at around 3:30am. The clock worked SOOOOOOO well.

  6. Call me stupid but why are toddler beds a thing? Why not just get a full sized bed after the crib? Or if it's too high just have the full sized mattress on the floor and add the box spring and frame when they are alittle older? I feel like to me that would make more sense.

  7. Can you please update what you ended up doing after he learned to open door and how he got used to it and how long the regression lasted? Currently going through toddler transition and sleep regression😩
