As you can probably guess from the photos Mia LOVES her big girl room! 🙂 What you might not know unless you have been following me on Instagram @suzannetoth is that since I moved her to her big girl bed she has been sleeping through the night! Woohoo! 🙂 It only took 3 years but I am as happy as she in in these photos. 🙂
Here’s all the details on her big girl room ~
Mia hand picked her teddy bear bedding from SNURK LIVING. She loves everything cuddly and cute so I wasn’t surprised when she choose the bear. It was so sweet when she first saw her bed made up, she snuggled right in to her bear pillow and her smile was priceless! You can find that photo here. 🙂 SNURK really brings magic and warmth to kids rooms. I’m sure you would remember Ella’s princess bedding from the post here. 🙂 SNURK was also kind enough to donate a princess set for this years Magical Winter Ball for Children’s Health. I know that is going to make a little girl very happy! If its princesses, space adventures, or superheroes that you’re little one is in to, they really have something unique for everyone. www.snurkliving.com
The Bed Frame
Candace & Basil is a family owned and operated Canadian company located in Mississauga ON. They have a fantastic selection of bedroom, living, kitchen and home accent furniture. Mia’s bed frame was one of the first items that we received and when my father came over to help put her room together. When we unboxed the frame we initially thought we were missing some pieces, but to our surprise, everything was zipped up and tucked nicely in to the headboard. The frame is beautifully crafted and the style will grow with her. You can shop her bed frame here. 🙂 www.candb.ca
The biggest change for the both of us is that Mia is sleeping through the night and I have no doubt it is because of the mattress! Delivery was easy and convienient. Mia had a lot of fun playing peek-a-boo with the box while I did the unboxing. You can find that video here. 🙂 The Allure Mattress was created with comfort, support and temperature control in mind. Mia is only 2 and can’t express exactly in words how she is enjoying her new bed but I can tell just by how well she is sleeping! As a Mom who has had little sleep over the last 3 years, I couldn’t be happier! If I haven’t sold you already, Allure offers 100 free nights to fall in love with their mattreses. If you’re not completely satistfied, they will arrange for pick up and a full refund. As a bonus, use my code: suzannetoth at checkout to received free shipping and $100 off your mattress. www.alluresleep.ca
