Lily's New Bed

Lily moving to her own bed has been way over due. Her cot bed was nicely sized, and she did fit into it well but being 4 and lately acting so grown up made me decide that it was time to move her to a single sized bed. 

Her cot bed was the size a toddler bed would be so I didn't see the point in buying her a toddler bed and so the next size up is an actual single bed. She is quite used to a single bed now as she has been sleeping in one for a while at my mums house so I knew that she would sleep fine in a bigger bed. 

Another reason to move her to a bed was to see if it helped with her night terrors. Lily has been having them every night for about a year now. I have tried lots of different things as apparently each child is different and so moving her to a new bed was a new attempt to get rid of the night terrors. 

I wish I could say it fully worked, she is still having them, though they aren't as often as they was and she will only have a couple of them in a week compared to each night. 

Even though it hasn't stopped her night terrors I am glad to move her to a bigger bed. I found one for her with a lovely pink head board and pink base, which also had sliding doors to be able to store things under. Though I do keep loosing things and then end up finding them in there, I think its Lily's new hiding place for things.

I then found the sweetest dover cover with animals on and hedgehogs on the inside which I just knew Lily would love. Not only that but it was made from the softest of material. I must admit I was slightly jealous of the comfort she was about to get. 


I popped all her teddies to the end of the bed, she has so many I did wonder if there would be room left for Lily. Then popped her new Unicorn pillow on the bed, which she chose out, and it was ready to be shown to Lily.

She was so excited to get her new bed and climbed on it straight away. She was very pleased that that night she was going to get to sleep in a big girls bed.

Lily has taken to her new bed really well, and I haven't had a single problem with getting her to sleep in it. The only thing I need to tackle now is her night terrors.

Here are some pictures of Lily and her new bed! 




What age did you put your child in a bigger bed?

  2. Moving child from cot / cotbed to bed is such an individual developmental step for each individual child. 2-3 years of age seems to have worked well within my family.

  13. Gran's can provide great opportunities for children to try out something new / different. Single bed use for Lily at your Mum's house, would have allowed Lily to settle into one. Before you went to the expense of acquiring Lily a single bed of her own at home.
