We moved Brody to his big boy room at the end of August so I could have some time to turn his old nursery into Madelyn's room. We actually started the transition with moving the crib into the new room even though he had already been climbing out of the crib for about a month. I thought it would make the transition smoother. And I think it did.
After a few weeks, he actually ended up breaking the crib springs and we moved the mattress to the floor. He slept on the cute little mattress like a champ for about 2 weeks and then I felt he was ready to sleep in a real bed with rails. I have to say, he has done an awesome job transition to his big boy room and big boy bed. The thing I was most worried about was losing his nap and thankfully, we still got it!!
His little room has been a work in progress and honestly has mostly come to us because of furniture my Mom was no longer using. She sold her house in New Orleans and had all this extra bedroom furniture that we were lucky enough to snag. The timing was perfect and twin beds couldn't be cuter in a little kids room.
Here's a look at what his room looks like with the crib mattress and further down with both twin beds set up.
