    Default RE: So, after they are out of the crib.........

    I'm actually very lucky. Kathleen won't get off the bed until we come and get her. I mean, she knows how to get off the bed, but she just won't get off until one of us is in the room. We also shut the door at naptimes and at night.

    She has toys (like her dollhouse) and books and other playthings in her room, but won't play with them until, again, we come into her room so she can get down. :)

    We used the child-proof doorknob covers when Jake transitioned out of his crib, and they worked really well. However, now both boys share a room whose door doesn't close well (we're in a vintage apartment), and the kicker is Jake doesn't like his door closed all the way when he's sleeping. So we're going to have to do some heavy negotiations when Danny moves out of the crib!

    I've been reading all these posts about sleeping in a big bed and closing the door and things and I'm wondering ..... if you close the door, and your toddler needs to go to the bathroom at night, do they just call you? We are facing the bed transition and potty training soon. Thanks, Ruth

    Adrienne was the same way.... I'd tuck her into bed, tell her good night and then I'd tell her to stay in her bed until Mommy came to get her. She would. LOL

    I had my easy child first. I have a feeling that teaching Gabrielle to stay in HER bed is going to be more of a challenge. But I plan to employ the same technique.

    We leave the door open and have a gate in the hallway. The area of DD's bedroom includes the door to the bathroom.

    Another possibility is to leave a portable potty on the bedroom floor.
