It was inevitable. Luke broke out of the Cozy Crib Tent II. Any hope of him using the tent until he is 5 has now been crushed. Ugh.
I still stand by the tent and would definitely recommend it. We got a good six months use out of it. This is how Luke broke loose -
He picked at a little hole near the zipper until it got big enough for him to slip his hand through and undo the zipper. I've known this was happening for the past few weeks, but I wanted to use the tent until the last possible moment.
So - now what?
In a way, it's a good thing. Charlie outgrew his bassinet a few weeks ago, so he's been sleeping in the pack n' play. Now Charlie can use the crib. That's about the only good thing I can think of.
It was inevitable that we would have to train Luke to sleep in a bed, I was just wishing we could put it off for another year or two... or three.... or four. I know, I sound like a crazy person wanting my son to sleep in a crib until he is 4, but I love being able to contain him. The worst part now is when he sneaks up on me after he breaks out of his room.
I am reading the "No Cry Sleep Solution for Toddlers and Preschoolers" right now. I think the "no-cry" part of the title is referring to the child, although it should refer to the parent. I want to cry when I think that I will get no more 3 hour naps from Luke in the afternoon. No more of him sleeping in till 9 a.m.
Excuse me while I get a tissue.
