Harper's Montessori-Style Toddler Bedroom

I'm so excited to finally be sharing Harper's new toddler room with you guys today! As you may know from some of my previous posts, Harper has always struggled in the sleep department. When she was about a year old, I was honestly so tired of getting up every hour when she woke up, that my husband and I decided to co-sleep full time. Prior to that, Harper would sleep in our bed with us at least half of the night anyway. I truly love co-sleeping! I know it doesn't work for every parent or every kid, but mine definitely loves to be close and the parenting job is certainly not over when the sun goes down. As Harper continued to get bigger and bigger, we finally decided she needed to have her own space to spread out in. Enter Tuft & Needle aka the most comfortable mattress I've ever slept on. Yes, you heard that right - I still sleep with Harper at some point every night, whether it's putting her to bed or when she wakes up in the middle of the night. Thankfully the mattress is made out of a special adaptive foam, which helps localize any bounce so Harper can't feel me sneak out after she falls asleep. Harper rarely slept in her crib, so transitioning her to a bed in her room was not very difficult. My only concern was her falling off because she tends to be a really restless sleeper most of the time. In thinking about the placement of her bed, I was inspired by the Montessori-style toddler rooms I had seen. We decided to keep things as safe and simple as possible by placing the mattress directly on the floor. Also, in keeping with the Montessori-style room, the majority of Harper's toys and books are at her level and are easily accessible. It was definitely bittersweet updating Harper's room from a nursery to a big girl room, but I have to say she is loving it so far!

I've linked as many of the pieces from her room as I could below, so be sure to check them out!
