Hi! Just wanted to share that our 5 year old son with DS just got a new twin bed. No more crib! The crib was starting to make me nervous because it had been passed around the family for awhile and is almost 30 years old! Marc decided to go under the crib the other night and pushed up with his feet and goofed up the frame. The was the last straw! I asked my husband to take it down and help me put up the bed. Figured we'd deal with the consequences. The first night I laid down with him for 45 minutes until he went to sleep. He slept for 4 hours and at 3:30 in the morning, got out of bed, turned on his light and started to play with his music train! I got him back to bed and he stayed in it until later that morning. Last night I put him to bed without having a nap at about 9:30. Stayed with him til he fell asleep in 15 minutes and he slept until 6:50 this morning! Did the same thing tonight. So, no more naps but it looks like he'll sleep through the night and he's doing fine without the nap. I looked forward to naptime because that was when I could get things done! But I guess it'll all work out. I'm curious to know at what age did some of you switch your kids to "regular" beds and did it all work out? I'm just hoping it continues to work!
