How to Transfer 19 Month Old to Toddler Bed

My husband and I are pregnant with our second baby, due in a few months, and are needing to transfer our 19 month old son out of the baby's crib. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to do this? He loves his crib and goes to bed wonderfully every night so I am nervous to change something working so well, but I need to start to get the nursery set up as I was on bed rest the last four weeks of my first pregnancy. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Deli Meats During Pregnancy

Thanks in advance for the info!

Underweight 13 Month Old, I Did Have IUGR During Pregnancy.

I have a beautiful 13 month old baby girl. The only concern that I have is that she is very small in size for her age. She's only 13 and a half pounds. Height wise she's doing great, but it just makes her look even that much thinner. I was diagnosed with IUGR (interuterine growth restriction) during my pregnancy and was put on bed rest and saw a high risk doctor the last two months.
