Toddler bed transition with My Green Mattress

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.

Meet a Mama: Tessa Vickers

Hi! I’m Tessa and I was born and raised in Leawood, Kansas, I went to Kansas State University and met my husband, Ryan, in Kansas City. After getting engaged, we decided to quit our jobs and move to Denver, Colorado. We have been married for 6 years and have lived in sunny Colorado for over 7 years. We currently live in Golden, Colorado where we are in the process of remodeling our home. We are so grateful for all Colorado has to offer our family; there are so many wonderful outdoor activities, it makes being a stay at home mama a lot easier and more fun. I love a good weekday hike followed by a delicious craft beer (let me know if you want to join!). We have one little girl, Lennon, who is 16 months old and has brought so much love and joy to our lives. I love being a SAHM with my girl, time does not seem to slow down and I want to savor every minute I can with her.
