Big Boy Truck Bed...

We moved Bubbalu to a big boy bed about a month ago.

I must admit the whole process was kinda weird for me, emotionally. My sweet baby is growing up and looks SO TINY in his new big boy bed.

When I took him home from the hospital at 5 pounds he didn't exactly fill his crib either:

He really was VERY tiny.

So, as for the big boy bed, we have had one fall-out, 2 get out of bed and play instead of sleep, and no leaving of his room.
How can this be? What made the transfer so smooth? What are my secrets?

I have NO idea. I just don't know.

But, we did buy him sheets that have trucks all over them:

And also splurged for the matching truck toss pillows:

The truck pillows and sheets are endless sources of excitement for Bubbalu. He is, after all, obsessed with trucks and cars.

But, he is ONLY allowed to play with the truck pillows ON his truck bed, so there is a sense of it being a treat to go and sleep in the truck bed.

I also used a basic bed rail so he wouldn't fall out in the middle of the night (which I purchased for the outrageous price of $1.00 at a thrift store).

The funny thing is, he stays in his room until I come and get him. When he wakes up from his nap or in the morning, he plays with his truck pillows or goes to his book bin, grabs some books, and gets back in his bed!

I know!

Of course, now that I've posted about it I am fully expecting a relapse.

I'll keep you updated...



  1. Yeah Bubbaloo! I was all worried about moving #2 to his big boy bed but we had to do it since #3 needed the crib. I fretted and fretted but once we did it, he had absolutely ZERO problems with it. There has been no turning back and he loves his bed too.

  2. Oooh, we have that set in Drew's room from Target. LOVE IT! :)

  3. Yea momma of the year! Of course it's all you!

  4. Its such a milestone when they move up! I almost cried when #2 made the move.

  5. Way to go! Our transition to a big boy bed was pretty uneventful, too. I think that was because we told Woggie he could jump on his bed all he wanted. I think the Superman pillowcases helped, too! :-)


C'mon, let's chat a bit...
