getting Zzzzzs


We recently packed up Nava's pack-n-play. Can't say its forever, but right now using a floor bed set up seems to be working very well. I like that the floor bed means if she wakes up she can explore without waiting for 'rescue'--I'll do anything to encourage her to get moving! The floor bed is recommended in Montessori materials too I recently found out.

Look who woke up!
For daytime naps (downstairs), she uses a crib mattress on the floor plus a bed rail we inherited from leaving friends (Thanks Elissa!). At night she has a thin twin-size mattress in our room. We have to creatively pillow-border it because girlfriend MOVES at night--exactly the reason our co-sleeping days are over. In fact, we have a second folding mattress we keep right nearby so there's plenty of space for all of us to stretch out for storytime before bed or to cuddle her on a rough night. She has a real thing about wrapping her leg over things while sleeping. The IKEA croc now does an important job since I no longer have to contribute my head/arm/leg/belly.We leave her bedtime books around her so she has things to check out in the morning while mom and dad try to cling to the last threads of sleep...
