We’re still cosleeping and it’s great when we aren’t trampled in the process. We have the toddler bed right next to ours. They are both now about the same height which makes it easy for Jayden to make his way into our bed. We did this for convenience, but our plans for good have started to foil.
The boy tears through both beds. Maybe using the word trampled was a bit of an exaggeration, but I don’t understand how someone so little could do so much damage while sleeping. One night, he literally just threw his body right on over me and landed in between Greg and I banging us both up in the process. Offended and out of sorts, we just adjusted and went back to sleep.
So while we’re realizing we have to get him sleeping in his room (for real this time), we wonder about keeping him in his toddler bed when it seems he needs a little more space to sleep. We’re looking at a few twin beds with rails for him. I found some really cute low lofts with storage that I know he’d love. We plan on having a few more kiddos, so saving space is really important. One bed has built-in storage, and the other has a slide with open space at the bottom for storage and an additional bed if we need to add one. I think I’m leaning towards bed numero dos.
I’m hoping to have him in his room, in his new bed by the new year. I think decorating his room will encourage him. It would also be a great Christmas gift to him and us. I think we’ve got ourselves a plan…
