oh, wise twin parents.... i need your compassionate ears and brilliant ideas.
my boys are 2y 4mo, and yesterday they both learned (with glee) how to climb out of their cribs. i am in desperate need of help in the form of ideas, good thoughts, prayers, miracles, etc... lol
first, our setup: one bedroom with a king bed on floor plus two cribs. the boys nap and go to sleep in their cribs, and then i move them to my bed when i go to sleep. there is not another bedroom i could use to separate them for sleep.
second, the temperaments: we've been dealing with biting from both of them since about 10 months of age. just yesterday, there were 2 incidents involving breaking the skin. yes, we're already working on getting help for this, but it's a reality that prohibits me from leaving them alone together when they are awake.
third, the problems: 1) they don't want to go to sleep in their cribs, 2) i am a single mom, so there is not a second parent to watch one while i put the other to bed, 3) naptime is not optional - they both still require a nap, and frankly, i require a break that involves both of them sleeping at the same time.
so, how did you transition to toddler beds (etc)?? i was not prepared, and i don't even know what to do! did you have problems? is sleep as sacred as it is in our house? help!!!
