Sleeping in own beds in own room *Bobo&Hooey'sMommy* 34 kids; Springfield, Oregon 23585 posts

My kids are 4 and 1 1/2 years old. My 4 year old has always slept with us and our 1 1/2 year old in her pack in play in our room. Well we got each of them their own convertible crib to full size beds. My daughter has been in there on her own 3 nights now but has to cry herself to sleep which breaks my heart, and cries when she wakes up. My 4 year old still wanders into my room around midnighht and crawls into my bed after having to fall asleep in my bed, then having to be moved to his room. Ugh. I'm completly frustrated especially with the 4 year old. Any advice??

It's what they're used to. I would just take your LO back to his room everynight. It hasn't been that long so it will probably take some time for him to get used to his own bed and he'll sleep through the night in it. Personally I'd stay in the room with your 1.5 year old when she's crying. It's probably going to be a hard transition for her. Help her calm down and then tell her you'll be right back and gradually make the time between checking on her longer. She'll get used to being in the room alone and see that it's not scary or whatever.

when he comes to your room at midnight dont wait till he falls asleep to put him in his own bed. do it right away. and your DD when its bed time try reading to her till she falls asleep then leave the room.

Just keeping taking LO back to their rooms.
It took DD a few weeks until she understood that that's how it was going to be from now on, she's 3.5

will definitly try the reading. And with my sin, i think he sleepwalks. He is never awake when he comes in, just like asleep and walking. Its weird

That's a good idea too :D It definitely gets easier OP.
