So we've just moved our 2.2 year old into the big spare bedroom because baby number 2 is coming in December and I wanted her to move without associating it with the new baby. Its all nicely done and obviously lots of her familiar stuff is in her new room, so I was hoping it would be OK. LO sleeps in her cot well for a day time nap for a couple of hours and at night, though she does sit and chat for a while normally. Sometimes she will miss her nap completely if she's overtired but is still happy to sit in cot and chat. I find if she doesn't nap she's foul by 5pm, which makes the wait till 7pm when husband comes home just awful for me at nearly 6 months pregnant Anyway, she seems unsettled by the change of room, even though I kept her in her cot thinking changing room and changing to a big bed would be too much in one go. She's still not trying to climb out but she's started taking her nappy off (she did this once before when she went through a phase of not napping, I think because she was bored in cot and it was something to do??) and lots of lots of chatting, singing, shouting etc, asking to sleep in the big spare bed, which is now in her old room. I'm wondering now if I should just put her in a bed or give her chance to get used to the room change? Am I babying her, I wonder how disruptive a room change actually is?? I lack confidence in my decisions at the best of times, I was trying to handle this so carefully to ensure that she didn't associate this move with the new baby and feel like I've screwed up!
Also, when they do stop napping (aghhhh!!!) what do you do to give them some downtime? I can't run around after her all day being this pregnant (and I guess with a newborn??) so how do I give her and me some much needed downtime before 6??
