Sleeping in their own room.
Our big win this weekend was that Chandler started sleeping in his own twin bed, and Calvin is sleeping in his crib.
The boys both sleep in the same room right now, but I'm not sure how long that will last.....last night Chandler woke Cal up at 12:30, and then woke Cal up again at 4:30 so we'll see. If Cal will eat enough at night before he goes down, he will sleep from 7:30 pm until 4:30 or 5:00 am and I would like to keep that routine if at all possible. Of course we'll see what happens when he starts teething again. ;) But if Chandler keeps waking Cal up, I will move the crib into our guest room - but that involves dissembling and re-assembling the crib and I'm not really looking forward to that so we're going to try both of them in the same room for a week, knowing it will be a transition period and then go from there.
I thought I'd share a few things that we're using that I think are economical and just work for us.
We have doubles of all of the below in anticipation of Cal & Chandler sharing a room for awhile.
This bed is sturdy, inexpensive ($80 total for each bed) and the slats make it lower to the ground versus having a box spring & mattress for little kids to climb up on. We've used them as guest beds for 5 years, and they are great for adults too!
We always buy whatever Costco has in stock, they're usually around $90 and great quality!
I just ordered these but the reviews are great! I'd love to not have to take off and wash a mattress pad cover and these look super simple to replace and wash - and the reviews all note that they don't curl and lay flat even after washing.
Twin sheets - We have the Geo Denim & Pacific patterns
These sheets feel extra luxurious, go on super sale a few times a year, and are extra deep so they are a breeze to put on!
My favorite $17 inexpensive monitor.
Nothing above is affiliate - just sharing what works for us!
Please let me know if you have any tips! I'm all ears. :)
