Thinking about setting up my 17-month-old in a floor bed. She hates cribs - always has - and after spending hours each day trying to transfer her without waking her (and failing, and repeating, and failing), it just seems like time to do something different. We have temporarily downsized to a small 2-bedroom apartment, and it's chock full of stuff, so I've been resistant to this idea due to the massive amount of reorganizing and babyproofing we'll have to do if she isn't contained in a crib. But, at this age, it seems ridiculous to embark on some kind of crib-training exercise, when she's about to outgrow it anyway!
Anybody else switch to a floor or toddler bed by this age? Any tips on how to set up her bedroom? Safety tips? I've just started reading some about the Montessori philosophy and find it interesting, but above all I want her to be safe.
