The next step for my baby

My youngest child, Missy Moo is turning two years old this summer. She is my last baby and therefore the last of each stage in a baby’s young life. When she learned to walk, I cried. Yes, of happy tears but a little sadness that I will never teach another baby to walk again, there will be no crawling and rolling over stages in this house again. Here we are at the next step for my baby, a big girl bed!

That means no more cribs in this house. We will all have normal beds and our rooms can be decorated accordingly. We will be saying goodbye to the nursery set that Buba had and grew out of and that Missy Moo is now growing out of too. It will be hard to sell something so precious but we don’t have room to store it for no reason other than sentimental value. It was good to us for four solid years and hopefully someone will want it and love it as much as we did.

She most likely will get Buba’s big kid bed as we are getting him a cabin bed to suit his roomΒ withΒ it’s funky shape and size. What worries me the most with Missy Moo is that she rolls around and tosses so much in her crib now she will definitely have to have a sturdy bed rail. Bed rails are so easy to attach and will give me that peace of mind that she is safe when she is away dreaming of fluffy stuffed animals instead of going bump in the night. They are never expensive either so I say why not make it safe for them. They come in so many colors too which is great so you can match it to your room theme if you like.

  1. Elma just went into Kitty’s toddler bed and we’re definitely still in the stage of listening for a bump in the night – she’s only a few inches off the floor though so she just rolls back into bed!

    • Oh that’s handy to have it not far off the ground. We still haven’t decided if we are just going to put her in a bed kid bed a normal single and skip the toddler bed or smaller steps. She doesn’t mind her crib still either as she is still in her sleeping bag. Lol decisions decisions.

  2. We are going to be moving Arthur too in the next month or so, we don’t want him to feel like he’s being kicked out of his cot for the baby (although he kinda is!!!)
    It’s definitely an emotional thing, and a real admission of them growing up which I a, so not ready for him to do!
    We have a little bed that’s really low to the ground ready for him but I’d like to still try and get some kind of bed guard!! X

  3. my youngest is also turning two this summer and to be honest I cant WAIT to get rid of the cot. Even if its just to stop the sound of her rattling the side when she wants to get out. Of course this will just be replaced by the sound of a stairgate so I’m not really sure which is worse…

  4. I wold love this for my nephew. He’s 2 and a half and has a B12 deficiency making him a little slower at growing than others of his age. He has outgrown his tiny cot bed now and my sister is already looking for one of these.

  5. My son is nearly 5 and still topples out of bed poor boy! His Sister I espect will be the same so I’d love to try this as our last bed guard was not ‘Adam proof’ and broke!

  6. These are such a great idea! We never had one with our daughter. If I’m honest, we kept her cotbed rails up for longer than she needed as we were terrified she’d fall out (even if the bed is about 30cm from the floor!!). This is definitely something we’ll be using with our son when he’s old enough.

  7. Great Contraption, will be needing one of these soon, dont think the cot will be escape proof much longer but the little man wiggles like good un during the night!

  8. This would be fab for when my nieces and nephews stay over – especially as the eldest now has to sleep in a bed and I worry he’ll fall out

  10. were not quite at that stage yet, i feel excited about re-doing his room and him growing up, but a bit sad too about this growing up thing! My baby is already long gone.

  11. We’re staying in a caravan soon and this would be great as the beds are so narrow I’m sure my little one is going to roll right off!

  12. These are fab, my eldest wont give hers up, and I want to move my youngest into a high bed, so another would be great

  13. My daughter was 2 in January and is getting too big for her cot. We want to get her into a bed but feel hesitant due to the fear of her rolling out. This is a genius concept
