Toddler beds for tiddlers

Everything is going well with the toddler beds though to be honest we set the bar pretty low. We have one toddler bed on either side of our bed, and the girls go to sleep in their own bed but are free to roll or crawl into ours during the night. This arrangement is working well for us all. Alex and I get to actually sleep next to each other in the middle of the bed, and there’s enough space in our sea of beds for all four of us.

We’ve had a few nights when Naomi stayed in her bed through the night, and one night were both girls slept through the night in their own beds without waking for milk. Amazing. So tonight it’s no more bottles when they wake in the night because they don’t need them. They are now both eating really well during the day, and are settled into our new environment. If they wake tonight they get water. Trying to stay positive that it won’t be awful but there will be wailing and gnashing of teeth, and shouts for “more” but since they are now napping on the sofa and not in the stroller they are more use to get getting back to sleep themselves. Fingers and toes crossed.

      Midnight to 2am was rough. Naomi doesn’t really want a bottle when she wakes but because Zoey gets them she started taking an oz or two. So when she woke up she was pissed at being offered water. She cried and cried and cried. Alex had to rub her feet to calm her down then every time he fell asleep she started crying again because her feet weren’t being rubbed! Oh the injustice of no foot rub and no bottle at 1am!

      Zoey who is big on milk at night was actually fine with water but took a long time to settle herself and get back to sleep.

      Alex said he’s going to sleep on the bus in today. Lucky sod!

      Hopefully since they had a broken night they will have a good nap.
