My son is 13 months and HATES his crib. He has slept in it exactly never. From birth until 4 months he slept in the arm's reach cosleeper. After 4 months he was moved to our bed and has been there ever since.
I'm now a month pregnant with Baby #2. Our bed is not big enough for 4 people. Baby #2 will be in the cosleeper until 4 months just like DS, but after that in our bed.
I'm thinking of buying my 13 month old a toddler bed in a few months. I don't want him to associate the transition to a bed with a new baby, but I think he would do better in a toddler bed than a crib.
Has anyone done this? Or should we just break down and buy a bigger bed (DH thinks this is best...he just wants a new mattress. LOL)?
PS: My 13 month old since nurses at night 2x most nights (although lately he has been STTN). So I need to take that into consideration.
