Lowering him down onto the mattress and tucking him up either at bedtime or during (sometimes) multiple resettling during the wee hours is getting to be a bit of a killer. He is miles away from climbing out by himself so we dont need (or want) to go through the 'big boy bed hassles' yet but I suspect it will have to come sooner rather than later as my back is suffering....
