Just thought I'd take a moment to brag, and share because I had suspicions all along and I really think I was right. First off, the background, from 2 days to 4 months old she slept in a swing (6 weeks-4 months STTN 7pm-6am), which was her favorite place. We tried co-sleeping but she was having none of it. I finally forced myself to break down the swing and put her in her crib which had been set up before she was even born lol. Well from night 1 in the crib she didn't sleep good. In fact from 4 months to 9 months it was horrible, she woke up 5+ times a night and I always thought that maybe the crib had something to do with it. She just hated it so much. (I think I might have even complained about how much she was waking up on here at one point). So her 1st birthday was coming up, and she was starting to take steps, and my dad mentioned that he had a day bed that we could have, he made it low to the ground exactly the height of a toddler bed, and we bought a twin size thin mattress for it, and a bed rail net to keep her from falling out of the bed (it covers about 75% of the length of the mattress so only the end has an open space to walk out of). EVERYONE looked at me like I was crazy when I said we were putting her in a big girl bed this early. But I was convinced that she'd sleep better if she was out of the crib, I just wanted her to be able to walk before I switched. So a few days before her birthday, after she started walking, we took down her crib, and set up her bed, and my husband was whining the WHOLE time like "this better work"... well night 1, slept through the night. I thought...maybe a coincidence, but its been about 2 weeks now she slept through every single night until a couple nights ago because of her shots. She's been amazing with the switch. She doesn't get up and mess with anything, and in the morning when she wakes up she either lays there and babbles until we come in, or she gets out of bed and knocks on her door (lol), or if we leave the door cracked like this morning, she came down the hall and into our room when she woke up. Seriously the most adorable thing ever haha. I don't post too often but I just thought I'd share, because switching from the crib to the bed has been amazing, and everyone has been saying "I can't believe she's doing so well, I thought it was going to go terrible", even DH had to admit it was going great even though they all warned me to wait until she was at LEAST 2. Why? lol.
