As a trained Montessori teacher, I had planned using a floor bed even before I got pregnant. Unfortunately, it just didn't work for us. From the moment my baby started rolling, he would get out of bed and many times sleep on the hard floor, which made his cheeks and hands freezing cold. Then, once he started crawling, he started sleeping poorly during the night because as soon as he woke up he would go to the door and cry for us. That was 3 or 4 times every night. During the day, he just quit napping altogether. We were all exhausted and I decided to give the crib a try. From the first night in his crib it was like heaven! He was 9 months when we switched to the crib, now he is 12 months and still loves it.
