Bed without bars

We’ve finally bitten the bullet and taken the sides off BB’s cot-bed, rendering it all bed and zero cot. It’s been about a week now, and though it did take him a couple of days to work out he could get out by himself, he soon got the hang of the pop-up. We put a gate on the door (no idea whether that’s actually a good idea or not, it just seemed to be a good idea at the time), and he frequently hangs over it, loudly demanding “milk” or “cuggles” before throwing all the books off his shelves and scaling the changing table.

Tonight though, I’m very proud to report that, after a serious little chat about the whole thing, he stayed put and is sleeping soundly as I speak.

Of course, that may simply be down to him being super tired from arseing around so much at nap time, but I’ll take what I’m given!

    What a fabulous big boy bed! It’s equally wonderful that he’s staying in it. I’m still a bit terrified about the transition and am putting it off as long as possible. Certainly they make cribs for 15-year-olds.

    still putting it off here; C is a small girl for her age (2.7) and has a large cot…go figure (and she asks for the side to be pulled up before she goes to sleep)


  3. Who wouldn’t want to sleep in a big boy bed as beautiful as that one?! (She says as her own son sleeps in the pack n’ play set up alongside the big boy bed he’s been sleeping in for the past 5 months… until 3 nights ago when he demanded a crib and could not be talked out of it. *sigh*) I love his bedding. Very cool. 🙂

    How is Jay doing? I can’t believe Buddy will be here so soon!
