I’ve been cleaning the house, nesting and decorating like crazy this past two weeks. We are expecting our new baby any day now and can’t describe you how excited I am, although I am aware that this will take away a lot of time from blogging and just give attention to one child only, but I am ready for newborn cuddles.
I created this series of free nursery printable, the exact same designs that I use for our nursery, you can find the file at the end of the post. This is for an A4/ letter size print, you can print it at home and frame it. I found that if I print it on a cardstock paper the quality is better and the colours are more bright, but you will need to fiddle with your printer and see what works best.
With my first baby, I made a nursery (because I love the process!) but he didn’t actually sleep there until four months later. We used a co-sleeper and attached it to the bed, breastfed and it was definitely easier then to go in his room every 2 hours, but once he hit four months and started waking up just for cuddles I knew it was time to move him in his room. The transition was surprisingly easy and I seriously didn’t expect that. The first three days were a bit more difficult when he couldn’t get settled and was waking up more often but after it felt like a blessing and I was glad I did the move so early.
Same happened when we transitioned him from the crib to a big boy single bed. We did it quite early and before he started climbing out of bed and getting to hate his room. Read more about our smooth and successful transition from cot to bed here.
I would love to hear from you how did you decide to sleep with your little one? Did you co sleep or straight in the nursery? I know that sometimes if the husband is working and needs to wake up early a screaming baby might be easier to calm down in his own nursery so everybody’s situation is different.
