Big Girl Bed

IMG_8616

…… and just like that she’s in a “big girl” bed  🙂

The Little Lady had started crawling over the front of her crib in the past week or so during playtime…. and then she started doing it at night…. and then crawling out in the morning-time as well. As daunting as it is, we figured it was finally time to try and convert her to a “big girl” bed.

With Lila (as is the case with the majority of autistic kiddos) – any sort of change or break in the routine can be extremely difficult for her. We thought about a few different alternatives, and decided modifying her current crib was the best option. That’s HER bed – she already feels safe and sleeps well in there.

Last night was the first night – and she did come back out into the living room a few times after I had put her to bed initially. We’re going to have to work on limit-setting again with this new change, and per usual it’s absolutely imperative to stay consistent. Once the bedtime countdown and transition song is done – it’s time for bed.

It will be interesting to see what this weekend brings – I hope you all have a wonderful weekend with your beautiful families! Lots of love to all of you.
