N’s first night in his proper bed (ie his cot bed without sides) was a big success.
He only got out once, and that was because he heard his dad come in at just before 8. Of course that meant little steps coming downstairs to see him, and that Dad would have to put him back to bed again. But once he was back in bed that was it for the night.
We’re really lucky he likes his sleep.
There was no falling out even though to me it seems like a tiny bed, although I’d put on a standard single sized duvet sideways so it covered him and the floor. Had he fallen out, he’d have likely just fallen onto more duvet. So the bed guard was a waste of money (although it was a bargain at an NCT nearly new sale).
Needless to say, he was up at 5.15am, and didn’t want to go back into his room to read or play…it’s a bit dark for playing in really. We haven’t yet got the Gro clock doing its job yet, so I think I’m going to have to readjust the day wake time to much earlier and then move it forwards gradually.
