The dreaded toddler bed transitioning begins tonight eeeep. Shaun and I decided to put the conversion kit on Chet’s cot this morning in a desperate attempt to retrieve our own bed. It hasn’t always been this way in fact, Chet was an incredible (I mean seriously amazing) sleeper from the beginning. I’ll fill you in on Chet’s sleeping patterns very briefly. From around 3 weeks old he slept through. From about 4 months he was sleeping through for a consistent 12 hours per night and at around 9 months he would self settle to sleep by himself. Recently we took a holiday trip to Victoria and Qld… from that very moment he absolutely refuses to sleep in a cot for more than 2 hours. To get a couple of (much needed) hours rest over East we had to bring him in to our bed so when we returned home this is all he wants now. Please don’t get me wrong I love having Chet in our bed especially when Shaun is away at work. The nights are filled with lots more cuddles and kisses however, it becomes hard when dadda returns home because there is not enough room for us all to sleep comfortably.

If you have a spare minute I would love, love, love to hear how you transitioned your little human into a toddler bed. Chet is 21months old and since our holiday has reverted back to being rocked/ patted to sleep. Every experience is different so I’m looking forward to reading your advice, trying some new techniques and hopefully giving Chet the smoothest possible transition. Of course if it doesn’t work out, the positive is more darling cuddles throughout winter in our bed.
I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend so far and please wiiiiish usssss luuuuck.
