J and I decided to keep the queen sized mattress and to move it into Henry’s room. Our new bed gets delivered on Saturday, and we’ll be setting up Henry’s “big boy bed” the same day. I bought a mattress frame, a waterproof mattress pad, new sheets, and a comforter set. It should all get delivered this week. I’ll be sure to post some pictures when we get it all set up.
I have so many mixed emotions about all of this. I’m excited that he’s old enough for a bed and can transition out of his crib. But, it’s also really sad. My baby is growing up and becoming a little boy, and I feel like I’m struggling to keep up with his rate of growth.
I’m also a bit concerned about how the transition from crib to bed is going to go. I have a feeling that it’s going to be a rough first few nights, but we’ll see. How did your child take to transitioning from crib or toddler bed to a regular bed?
