Well the time has come, after flaffing about for months Little Miss went into a big girls bed at the end of last week. Hurray!
We have been meaning to do it since before Christmas and since we anticipated being up in the night sleep training with our little adventurer, we put it back again and again until we were all feeling better. When we put Master H into his first bed we were up for months! No joke.
We needn’t have worried! She slept the first night straight through. We couldn’t believe it.
We used the Daisy Dreams Gro to Bed for Cot Beds and it is fab!
Little Miss can still get in and out of bed but she hasn’t fallen out once which saves putting up a bed guard!
It’s such a pretty pattern too, girly enough for us! It feels lovely and is so easy to put on.
The duvet is attached to the fitted sheet by a zip. Everthing you need is attached. You slide your cot bed size pillow into the pillow case. The fitted sheet part also has elastic to go under the mattress to keep it in place even more. It’s so clever!
We took the opportunity to move the room around a bit. We’re going to do away with the baby pink walls in time, although she does choose pink a lot she also suits more of a raspberry colour and blues too.
I must admit I had a tear when I saw her in her big girls room. She’s growing so fast.
It’s been a dream of mine to be able to kneel down next to my littlest to read her stories and cuddle her in bed which I haven’t been able to do with the cot sides on. I can already feel our bond deepening because I stoke her face while she lies in bed. I tried to do it though the slat of the cot bed but didn’t feel the same. I’ve started to sing to her too while stroking her face. Bedtime is precious time.
Potty training is also going brilliantly! The only thing? Now she can get out of bed and put herself on the potty which is fantastic, what’s not so great is swinging the potty around after she’s gone. Me and Jon just laugh, but it’s not so fun stepping on a wet patch at 6am. At least the sleep side of things could not be better.
We received a sample from The Gro Company for the purpose of review, as always all words and opinions are my own.
