This lunch time was going like any other routine wise, when the rubbing of the eyes came around I started the wheels turning for nap time…
After setting up Little Einsteins for Rocket to watch I proceeded to leave the room and shut the door like normal though today he seemed unhappy with this idea and cried a little when I left. I thought he would calm down as normal so came to sort laundry out when I heard and almighty THUD, followed by some loud screaming.
I rushed back into his room to find him on the floor after what I can only imagine is he fell head first out of the travel-cot. He is fine, although a little shaken, as was I! After carefully examining his head for a bump and not finding one I gave my grizzly little boy some calpol and hot milk and now he’s settled back in his cot (with a duvet bundled up on the side).
I’m actually lucky I got this far without this happening before, hes a little daredevil anyway and seeing as my brother climbed out of his cot at 9 months we didn’t do too badly. But the idea of training him to sleep in a bed absolutely terrifies me! The cot is the only 4 walls that holds him in! I’m scared of him not understanding the boundaries of a proper bed, especially as he’s 2 in a couple of weeks time, he just trashes the place!
We have a baby gate on his room now, we don’t have stairs to worry about but the thought of a free range baby in the night scares me.
I’m absolutely clueless as to where to start so any advice on successfully switching from a cot to a bed would be most welcomed. As I fear its on the cards sooner rather than later!
