Yes, I believe Hakan is ready for a big boy bed, I hope anyway.
|This was Hakan at 6 months standing in his crib for the first time after nap, I about had a heart attack because the mattress wasn't lowered yet.|
We've had Adeline in our room, but soon we will move her to Hakan's crib and add a bed to their room. They have to share a room, which is a whole other scare for me, waking each other up and all.
I'm just nervous that after finally sleeping 12 hours at night, he might wake up more. Or if he does wake up, he'll want to get up and read his books or play...or come to our room. We need to really toddler proof the room, I need to get all the shelves attached to walls, where can you get that stuff?
It's going to be cramped, but sometime this week we're going to put Hakan's Ikea bed together and have him sleep in it. The bed is pretty sweet, it can be a twin size, but squishes down smaller, thank goodness. Toddler size beds seem like such a waste to me, so this seemed more practical.
He picked out some sports sheets with balls all over it, his favorite thing.
I think I'm going to start out with just putting him in it for naps. I'm not sure on the best way to transition. Any tips from big bed moms please?
It's kind of bitter sweet, my baby boy being big enough for an actual bed:( This might be harder on me then on him I think.
Wish us luck!
