Room Reveal: Toddler-Bed Ready – How to Set Up Your New Toddler Bed

Here comes another milestone: Leo is toddler-bed ready and mama’s feeling all sentimental.

...and here comes another milestone. Leo is ready for his toddler-bed and here is how we set up his toddler-bed area.
This post was created in partnership with BuyBuy Baby. We are so excited to share our experience with one of our favourite brands.

You guys… it’s happening. Leo is graduating to a toddler-bed and I feel as if he’s already packing his bags and heading to college. It’s incredible how fast these milestones pass by.

On my last post, I talked about our recent move. As we unpacked, I found Leo’s first ever onesie (the one he went home in). I look at the tiny neck hole, the small sleeves, and the little buttons – then I look at Leo, who’s walking, playing, and starting to repeat words. It pulls at my heart strings: Every. Single. Time.

I’m so excited to show you Leo’s toddler-bed area. This will be the first of many room reveals on our blog, so get ready! Lucky for me, I was able to put-together his toddler-bed area with items from BuyBuy Baby. It’s just so easy for me to shop at a store that’s bright, clean, offers quality baby items, and boasts incredible customer service. (And that’s exactly why you can find me shopping there for hours at a time.)

Aaaaand here it is:

How We Set Up Leo’s Toddler-Bed Area

Leo’s toddler-bed is actually a convertible setup that started off as his crib. All we had to do was purchase the toddler-bed kit (essentially, one side of the crib that’s lower/shorter and has an opening).

See more convertible cribs here.

As we get through this new phase, Joe and I decided to keep the toddler-bed in our master bedroom, much like we did when we first set-up his crib. In the meantime, we’ve made Leo’s room into a playroom/office combo.

Wall Treatment

...and here comes another milestone. Leo is ready for his toddler-bed and here is how we set up his toddler-bed area.

Since we’re all sharing one bedroom, I wanted to differentiate our respective areas with their own colour schemes. Leo’s toddler-bed set-up is cusping on a grey/black/monochrome type-of-look.

I turned to these triangular wall decals to give Leo’s main wall some character. I’m not a huge fan of wallpaper (or rather, the act of putting it up and taking it down) so these made for a great alternative.

The decals come in sheets so it’s up to you how to put them up on the wall. (P.S. Wall decals are a great option if you’re renting your house/condo.)

Mattress

As a treat to Leo, we decided to buy him a new mattress. The Little Princess Bedtyme Comfort II Crib and Toddler Mattress is offered at a great price point and offers three cushioning layers. It’s totally comfy and grows with your child since it fits all standard-size American cribs and toddler beds.

Sheets & Blankies

I was never one for the “baby boy blue” colour scheme. Even for my baby shower, I requested a mint green setup to steer clear from it.

I fell in love with the pattern on our fitted crib sheet (similar here) and thought it went well with our decals. Then, I spotted this simple, yet, elegant blankie from Ellen Degeneres’ baby line (yes, she has one!) to tie it all in together.

It’s the Little Details

I’m all about storage and organization so I opted to place this box on a side table for easy access to Leo’s diapers and wipes. This way, the essentials are at arm’s reach but are still stored away neatly.

To add that touch of love, we put up this heart-shaped wall-decor (again, a cute piece from Ellen’s line) and purchased the cutest lamb (for cuddling purposes, of course).

  1. The lamb stuffy is so precious! I love the wall decals too . . . fun but not too childish since you’re sharing a room.

  2. Holy moly! It’s so beautiful! This is the classiest looking baby room ever. I love that is has a peaceful feel while not being bland OR overdone.

  3. Wow! You have superb and amazing interior designing. The kid looks very happy. A job well done.

  4. Wow! This is such a beautiful bedroom design for him. It looks so fresh, clean and the ambiance is very welcoming and he looks so happy with his new room.

  5. Okay, that little boy is soooo cute, and so is his room. It’s so bitter sweet to watch them grow… Each new milestone is exciting and fun, but you also miss them when they were littler… Mine is only 6 months and I already feel that bittersweetness that comes from the desire to see them grow and achieve, but also the need to hold and cuddle her all small and baby against me for a while longer…

  6. What a lovely nursery! I love the neutral colors that you’ve selected – so bright and calming. And the decor is simple but really pretty. Good job!
