My Lil man Is climbing out of his crib so we are switching to a toddler bed my biggest concerns is how am I going to keep him in it when he goes to bed. He's very stubborn like his daddy and persistent as well so I know I'm in for some long nights ahead of me/us. Is there anything I can do to make this switch easier??

My kids transitioned to mattresses on their own early, 23 and 18 months, of their own choice.
One of the things they loved is that we could lay down beside them.
Now we start that way, with story etc, then sit on a chair in their room and ipad alone, then sometimes sit outside the door.
