Blaire’s Big Girl Room

We have gone back and forth between having Blaire sleep in her crib and her toddler bed for awhile now. And I’m excited to say we’ve finally taken the jump and moved her to her toddler bed full time! Upgrading to a toddler bed was the perfect excuse to update Blaire’s nursery into more of a big girl room. I wanted her big girl room to be somewhere with space where she can play, but I also wanted it to still feel familiar.

Obviously Blaire’s big girl bed called for new bedding! It was perfect timing because the Oh Joy! Collection for Target had just launched and I, I mean Blaire, needed it. We went with the Dots Crib bedding set, because she really needed a quilt that would fit a toddler bed and the quilt in this set is so, so cute! We also bought some sheets in other prints from the collection because they are SO soft. (This flamingo print is my faveeee! But then you’ll want this flamingo pillow, too!) And you can never have enough sheets for your kiddo! Also, that rainbow pillow case on her bed was mine when I was a kid. It brings back sooo many memories.

Since those little guys are painful to step on, we like to keep them out of the living room and in her bedroom. I’m still wanting an area rug for her room, but haven’t decided on one yet!

Blaire is just in the very beginning stages of potty training. While she’s been too big for her changing pad for over a year now, we still very much need our trusty Diaper Genie. The newest version, the NEW Diaper Genie Complete, is amazing! It holds over 270 diapers! Seriously. For us, we only change it every other week, on garbage day. The Ultimate Odor Lock system and a 7-layer refill bag make sure her room smells fresh between changes.

Baby Shower Gift

Diaper Genie at Target

You know Target is my favorite… Especially when it comes to items for your precious little babe. You better believe we registered there… and it’s always my place for baby shower gifts. The Diaper Genie Complete is a must-have for your baby registry. Seriously. It’s listed as a must-have on my Baby Registry Guide. Another go-to baby gift is the Playtex VentAire bottle.  It has a unique anti-colic bottom vent, which means a happier tummy for baby! And the angled design helps prevent ear infections, which is a win/win!  Best of all? The Most Like Mom® NaturaLatch® Nipple helps baby latch on naturally and promotes easy switching between breast and bottle-feeding! Another win/win to me, which makes this the perfect baby shower gift.

Have you tried the Diaper Genie or VentAire Bottles? Do you have go-to baby shower gifts? What about your babe’s nursery or your toddler’s big kid room? What items are a necessity in there? I’d love to know in a Comment below! xo

    Your daughter’s room is so cute! I love the little jar with paper cranes.
