We simply switched Birch from his crib to an enormous boy mattress (properly, from a toddler mattress to twin mattress!). Right here’s the way it went!
From Crib To Huge Boy Mattress
The previous couple of remaining child objects in our home have been the excessive chair and the crib (aka toddler mattress at this level). Birch has by no means been in a rush to maneuver to the subsequent part, so we haven’t rushed him. There’s been no purpose to!
However one weekend day I used to be in a decluttering temper and determined we’d inch towards the subsequent part: an enormous boy twin mattress. The dual mattress has been in there since he was born. (See the nursery tour right here and when this room was my workplace!). With a crib, mattress, and rocking chair, this room has been TIGHT. We’re all thrilled to have some more room!
Thomas took Birch out on a hike and I added a rail to his mattress after which switched the crib and mattress places.
The Earlier than Format
I don’t know if it’s feng shui or only a intestine intuition, however I needed his mattress to be on an inside wall and never beneath a window. Possibly as a result of I’m petrified of bushes falling on the outer nook?! So I at all times knew I’d put the mattress to the left of the door, simply the place his crib was.
Altering Desk Topper
I additionally eliminated the altering desk topper in order that the dresser is all set for all times! This the Blythe Dresser from Pottery Barn that has a detachable altering desk topper. I gifted the topper to our neighbor, who’s anticipating, so she will be able to flip a dresser into her altering desk.
It seems so modern now!! The two-toned baskets are from Goal.
The First Night time
I truthfully I had no concept if Birch would wish to return to his crib or change to the brand new mattress. I hyped it up, and guess what? HE WAS THRILLED! He got here dwelling and squealed!
He received proper in and began taking part in.
And that evening he slept fantastically (with Wool E. Bull!).
The following morning, I requested him if he needed to maintain his crib or say goodbye. To my shock, he stated say goodbye. So we had a brief ceremony. He laid down and stated “I really like you crib” and the proceeded to leap throughout it 5 instances.
So many crib recollections!
I believe it was far more emotional for me since this was Mazen’s crib too!
