The big day has arrived. Our baby transitioned to a “big girl” bed. The crib to bed transition is a natural and inevitable one of toddlerhood but never-the-less it is very bittersweet. There are so many ways to do this transition (toddler bed, twin bed or Montessori type bed, etc.) but ultimately we decided to put Logan in a twin sized bed. For us, this was a longterm play — knowing that a twin bed would last her much longer! She also has so many stuffed animals that she needed the room! There’s no right answer in terms of which bed to choose; you just need to consider which works best for your toddler and your family.
Creating a healthier, less toxic home can seem daunting. I get it, there are so many resources and products out there shouting down at you. I truly believe the best way to start is to just jump in and select a few ways you believe you can consistently make a difference in your home. Don’t feel pressured to do all these things at once. I personally ditched the all-or-nothing mindset and just embraced that I’m doing my best to create a greener home. I’ve been doing this now for almost three years and I can tell you it’s an ever-evolving journey — you live and you learn.
