Toddler Bed Bumpers

Over Christmas Break, we made a few changes to Harry’s room. I know some people prefer children’s rooms to only be for sleeping, but I love when they enjoy playing in them. I want each child to adore their own little space and go in and use their imagination whenever they want. Harry seemed to enjoy the playroom or sister’s room more- which felt like a natural baby of the family thing, but I still wanted to find a way to make him enjoy his space. First, we noticed that his train table was hardly touched. Instead, he’d just sit on it to look at books. I think it was probably just far too large for the room. It was taking up so much space, so we sold it to a friend that had just moved. He loves looking at books, so I wanted that to be more of a focus in the room. I found a low bookshelf that would serve his room better and take up less space. And the big change? We moved his bed to the middle of the room! He’d done great for six months sleeping in a big-boy bed, so it felt like it was time. Oddly enough, a little rearrange seemed to do the trick!

I received many messages on Instagram asking what we use to keep him from falling off the bed, and I had to do a post on these toddler bumpers! They are my favorite that we have ever tried- I mean if I could have them on our bed I would. Ha! These are soft bumpers you put under the sheets on both sides. It makes it to where a toddler can’t roll off, and it also cocoons them in!

Harry sleeps so much more soundly in his bed this way, and I love snuggling in bed with him because it’s just so cozy! If you want to feel this relaxed on your own bed, it may be time to avail the suggestions on the Dreamcloud Hybrid Mattress Reviews.

Even though his bed is in the middle, I find him playing in his room far more. I think the bookshelf has been key. He practically destroys it every single afternoon. He has to find all his favorite books, then he sits in a pile reading them. But I love it! It makes me so happy to know he has his own little space that he can enjoy without having to share toys with sister. I snuck this blurry photo Sunday morning.

Along with the bookshelf, I grabbed these two baskets from Restoration Hardware. They are the perfect size {honestly have I ever met a basket I didn’t like?!} for big blocks and trucks. If you are stuck on how to store big wooden blocks or firetrucks, you can’t beat them!

Let me know if you have tried the bumpers, they are fantastic! He’s loving this setup and I’m loving how much easier it is to make his bed. 😉

    Such a precious room. JUST “boyish” enough for his age!
    I agree with the low bookshelves. We all get carried away w/these tables.They even have one for the animal dollhouse with all the little animal families. Everyone I know agrees. The items all end up on the floor WITH the child. I think we get carried away b/c we think THEY think like us! We like coffee/cocktail tables for our cups or glass, magazines, etc. We don’t put our coffee on the floor! Toddlers-early elementary and beyond are on the floor! ALWAYS!
    P.S. Where did you find the Cavalier King Charles bookends???
    They look just like our pup! I want them!
