I want to know how you managed that miracle. My younger one didn't have a clue about climbing until he was almost two. Then one day he went from sitting there crying to climbing out to get a book or a blanket and climbing back in.
I wish mine would climb out of her toddler bed. Nothing is holding her in, she's almost 4. She's just such a rule follower that she will sit there and wait for us to wake up. I hear her talking to herself and playing in her bed and it's super cute, but the stupid drawback is that she yells I NEED TO GO POTTY when she needs to go, but won't get out of her bed because she thinks she is supposed to stay there until I get her.

Update: ninjamas were a failure, woke up to another blowout but poor girl absolutely loves baths so she got a morning one. Tried a different nighttime diaper tonight, sized up, and lined the front with a couple women pads.. slept for about an hour and was screaming for some reason, went in changed her and she ended up with a "full" diaper. Changed and now 3 hours in and she's been asleep so we'll see in the morning ugh

Growing pains of course and could be worse so I'll take it, just hate her waking up in the morning soaked outside of her diaper :/
Have you considered a folded curtain?

youngest woke up this AM with a throat so dry and horse she was having trouble breathing normally.
straight to the ER. Doctors took covid and influenza tests and both were negative. lungs are totally clear.
sounds just like Croup but apparently isnt Croup :dunno: slight fever.
we were at the water park all day yesterday and she went full speed the whole day, wore herself out. thinking it may be something to do with that.

My older one is the same age. She is happy to get out of bed on her own. For better or worse. I'm not sure which way I'd prefer it to go. But she does the super cute yelling I need to go potty if she can't get a door open or is stuck in a car seat or something.

Sounds like any number of possible viral infections

It's going to be tuff to get a FULL night sleep until he doubles his birth weight.

American Academy of Pediatrics still recommends baby sleeping in the same room as parents until 6 months for safety
yeah, that doesn't work for us

we have a video monitor on him at all times and he's just in one room over

he was doing 7-8 hours with the snoo on, so imo he just needs to get used to it not rocking

did this exact thing like 3 months ago. struggling to breathe. had no signs or symptoms before laying him down for bed woke up an hour later sounded like a car horn. we figured croup but seeing him struggling to get air in scared the shit out of us. they did breathing treatments and admin steroids at the ER and sent us home with oral steroids. mad scary

330 AM and shes kneeling on the top bunk in her bedroom holding her throat saying she cant breath and making an absolutely horrifying sound. spooky as hell.

Only takes 3 nights for a transition to take if you stick with it. He's pretty young for cry-it-out though.

ER docs said it wasnt serious enough to keep her there. keep her full of tylenol and watch the fever. she still sounds super hoarse but is acting normal and energetic


These kinds of things are SO frustrating. It feels like there is nothing you can really do except wait it out. I hate hate hate viral infections. You don't get medicine or relief unless it's REALLY bad.

she got a cold like two weeks after we brought her home from the hospital. hearing her coughing and wheezing at night as a newborn was about the most helpless i ever felt in my life.

Kaylee has started sleeping through most of the night. I'm deathly afraid of regression now, but it's nice to not have gotten up at 1am and 4am for the past week or so.

we've been able to give her a bottle at 10pm, and she will stay asleep until 5-6am.
