I’m planning on transitioning Harper Sue’s “crib” into her “toddler bed” this week. While the new freedom for her might be significant, what is structurally involved is simply removing 4 screws and one panel- something we’ve been doing more and more frequently during her waking hours anyway.
I just finished doing a bit of research on transitioning toddler’s to a floor bed and expect that Harper Sue will transition with a few nights of distraction but don’t expect a prolonged struggle. She loves her crib and I have no doubt that she’ll love her new independence.
Here’s a shot from one of the first times we configured her crib into a toddler bed for playtime way back in March of last year.
