Getting Ready for a Big Girl Room
With the upcoming arrival of another little Digger and K Digger’s impeccable ability to scale out of her crib the time has come to move her to her big girl room. The baby will take her old room and she’ll move into a larger room with a twin sized bed. For the past month while we chose the bed and awaited it’s arrival she’s been sleeping with us. I know, it’s a bad habit to start. But hey, I sleep better knowing she’s not going to climb out of her crib and break a bone *KNOCK ON WOOD*. Her big girl bed has arrived and we’ve slowly been working on putting it together. I just love her new bed, it’s the South Shore Twin Mates Tiara collection (stay tuned for my review). By this weekend, the bed should be complete and the finishing touches can start.
I’m really pretty nervous about this transition for her, but I figure the sooner we do it the better the chance of her not feeling like she’s getting pushed out of her room for the new baby. I know there are going to be enough challenges with her being jealous of the baby. I know she’ll be a great big sister but it’s only natural for her to be at least a bit jealous, right?
I’ve had a lot of fun choosing the decor for her new room and while I am nervous, I am also excited for her to have her own bigger room with lots of fun accents and activity space for her. Here is the overall plan for her room –
I’m looking forward to seeing it all come together, although it will be a slow process to get it to 100% where I envision it. I really think she’ll love it and hopefully enough that it won’t be traumatic for her. When did you move your toddler into a big kid bed? Any good tips for helping make the transition for her easier?
