Re: my dd is almost 3 and still in a crib...bad?

What about taking one side off the crib and putting it up next to the big bed? Um sidecar I think its called. Some mama's do that when co-sleeping and maybe that would be a good option for her. She'll still be sleeping "in the crib" but also get a feel for the bigger bed too. Maybe she'll eventually just move on over to the larger bed.

We didn't have issues with the big bed at night but my oldest had to nap in a pnp or crib until 3ish. He just needed that confined feeling to make himself go to sleep for naps.

i agree...stick with what works. there's nothing negative about sleeping in a crib at 3 years old! if something isn't harming a child we shouldn't feel the NEED to change it. we set milestones so much as a society/culture and have too many expectations, i think. we should be focused on happiness and health above all for every member of the family. it sounds like your daughter is doing really well in her crib. mine is 2.5 and starting to have issues with sleep--both naptime and nighttime. i'm jealous of your DDs 12 hours!
