This week's photo is of Jamie in his crib by our bedside.

In the Bednest

When we brought him home from the hospital, he looked absolutely tiny in here. With his feet at the foot of the crib as per the safer sleeping guidelines, his head barely reached the centre of the mattress! Now, at almost three months old, it seems to fit a lot better.

It makes me feel conscious of the fact that the crib is in fact a six-month rental, by which time he should have outgrown it, and we're halfway through that period already.

He has a bigger cot in the nursery, that should serve for the next couple of years as it converts to a toddler bed. Our plan for the transition is that Monkey and Ewan the Dream Sheep (pictured) will come with him to the nursery. But for now, this is basically what I see by my bedside every morning and evening.

It is amazing how fast they grow isn't it, I hate to say it but he's starting to grow out of being a newborn! Also the bed nest looks fantastic, so very snug and cosy 😀

I know, but it's so exciting too.
The Bednest has been good. It's one of those where the side can be put down, makes night feeds and constant checking for breathing easier. But now we have the sides up - again, preparing for transition to his own room, not being able to see mummy at all times - and I think it bothered me more than it bothered him.
