Need Help With Transition From Crib to Toddler Bed

by Mary
(Chesapeake, VA)

Hi can anyone please help me, my twins share a room and we are on our second night of them being in a toddler bed. My husband opted out for the crib tent but now they either get up at 6 and wake up everyone or come out of their room and destroy the whole house while we are sleeping. I just don't know what to do! Any suggestions will be helpful.

we too found ourselves in your position, so to either encourage them to sleep longer we put a blackout blind up the window to block the light out, as well as a safety gate across their door way or the top of the stair and enlist with little latch locks at the top of any doors of rooms you dont wish for them to get into, just so you can have a lie in without fretting, our boys are now 4yrs old but we still have to remind them sometimes, but cant moan as they sleep from 7pm-7am, blessed indeed

my son just went into a toddler bed as well. what we did was buy one of those gates that you use to block off a kitchen or bedroom and we put that in front of his door, and when he gets up he stays in his room until we get up
