    My family will be staying in the Boardwalk Villas in a one bedroom. My 2.5 year old son still sleeps in a crib @ home. However, he is too big for a pack n play. I've requested bedrails, but I KNOW he won't sleep in a big bed. What are my options?

    Hi Mara!

    Other than the included options that your resort offers (pack 'n play and bed rails), my next suggestion would be to rent a crib from a local baby supply rental company.  I've not personally used them, but have heard many positive things about a baby's best friend.  They have full size cribs available for rent.

    Another option you could try is to lay with your little one in their bed until they fall asleep.  They usually stay put once asleep, and the bed rails can give the illusion of a crib.  2 out of my 3 (so far) have moved to a full size bed before 2.5 years old (because we've needed the crib for the next baby), and we've used the lay with technique very successfully. 

    Have a magical vacation!
