Big Boy Bed Update

Braden has been in his big boy bed for 2 weeks now and it is going great!  We had absolutely no problems with the transition.  He didn't even really say anything about it the first night, it was like he had been in it forever.  Silly me for worrying about it...go figure.

The first night he crawled in and this is where he slept.  He just really loves that closed in feeling I guess.

(First night in big boy bed - 2/26/11)

I went in several times throughout the night and he slowly moved his way around the bed and the last time I checked he was getting close to the end.  So I piled up some pillows and blankets on the floor just in case.  Then all the sudden at about 6am I hear *thump* and his door goes flying open and he looks at me and says, "I fall out Mama!"  It was so sad and funny at the same time.  Funny only because he was fine (and the look on his face.)  The entire day whenever anyone asked him about his big boy bed all he would tell them was "I fall out."  I kept thinking: great, I bet tonight won't go so well now.  But it went fine, climbed right in and curled up again.  Hallelujah!  He won't even get out by himself, in the morning he will just lay in there and talk until we go get him.  (Alexa was the same way...how lucky are we!?) :)


He has since ventured out a little bit and will sometimes even lay the long way.


He loves his big boy bed!  YAY!

Too cute Laura!

He looks little boy the short way but the long way he looks so big!

Wow. So jealous!! The big girl bed ruined our babe...she went from being the best sleeper we've ever had to our worst one.

Once we're beyond this Nuk debacle, we'll tackle the sleep!!

Yay is right...especially since he really loves it!

That's such a big thing for him to do! I'm so glad it's working out so well!

So cute. Congrats!

Yeah, we are still struggling a little bit with Cubbie going into his big boy bed. But I think it has more to do with the fact that both boys are now in the same room.

Oh and don't feel bad, Cubbie has fallen out a couple times too!

That's so great...one less thing to worry about! We bought Caleb a Captain's bed for his first bed too and I was so worried he would fall out! He looked so little in that big bed! But he never did...thank goodness for those guard rails though :)

Woo-Hoo! So glad that went well for you. I love the "I fall out." I agree - sad and funny all at the same time.

You have given me hope. We are graduating Keith from the toddler bed to a twin bed next month, and I have been very apprehensive. And oh my goodness, how cute is Braden! Seriously. He looks so big laying width wise of the bed. They just grow up too fast. Sigh.

He is precious. My kids never had trouble with the transition either. They could sleep anywhere :)

Katrina said...

Awwww! He looks so comfortable. Aidyn would never get out of bed unless we went and got him too. That is the best!

Whew! That's a relief! I'm glad it's gone so well for him. What a great little guy!
