What to do, what to do?

Most of my regular readers know that I have been trying to decide between twin beds, toddler beds, futons and whatever else for my little tot. I am not sure why I am putting this much pressure on myself since the little guy is still pretty content with his crib and loves to play in it each day. My mother-in-law said that I was dragging out the last bits of baby that is left of him. She said she thought that was a good thing! Maybe I should formulate a poll for readers to vote on what I should do. Potty train begins next month so I have to hurry and make a decision!

  1. It's so hard to let go of those last gasps of babyhood, isn't it? Gabe went into a toddler bed simply because his crib converted and we could continue using his crib mattress. He is now in a bunk bed and LOVES it.

  2. I say if he's still comfortable in and enjoy the crib then leave him! Ms Ashleigh was done with hers. She went in and out as she pleased so it was pointless to keep her in there.

  3. Do what you think is best for William and what he is comfortable with.
    Once Mari was too big for his crib, we converted to the toddler bed. But he kept falling out and we moved on up to a twin. He always ended up sideways and hanging out of it. Now he sleeps in a full size and we have no problems at all.

  4. Keep him in a crib for as long as possible! If he's happy with the crib, stick with that. When he turns 3 make it a BIG boy day and let him pick out his bed. Have Fun!

  5. I agree, I think the crib is fine for the time being. It's not a convertible crib where you just remove one side and it's converted to a toddler bed? If so, you all could even continue using it another couple years.

    If not, I would probably go for the toddler bed. A twin bed just seems like a huge jump, and he might have difficulty adjusting to the change, even with the additional of rails. He can stay in his toddler bed til he's like 5 or 6.... and then you all can move on to the twin.

    On a related note, omg, we're having the hardest time transitioning Chase to his toddler bed. I hate to rush him (just because of the arrival of the baby), because he's clearly not emotionally ready for this transition yet. Although we've already spent the money, I'm strongly considering just getting a second crib for the baby, and boxing up the toddler bed for now. I don't see it as "giving up," so much as just letting nature take its course, you know? We shall see....
