How To Make The Big Switch To A Toddler Bed

As a child grows, they tend to dictate all their milestones. You can’t get them to crawl as much as they will start doing that on their own. After that, they realize they can pull themselves up. It’s not long after that when they take their first steps. From that moment on, there is no turning back! When your child starts preschool and meets more kids their age, they will begin to make all kinds of new requests. One of those might be making the big switch to a toddler bed. That’s a good thing because if your toddler is asking for this, then they’re already invested in the process. Here’s how to help that along:


Pick the Right Bed

Some cribs folds open to become a small toddler bed but not every parent is thinking of toddler beds when they’re shopping for a crib. The right toddler bed will be slightly smaller than a single bed. It will also be lower to the ground. You have to expect there will be a lot of jumping on this new bed so you want to make sure it is sturdy. Having a box spring and mattress right on the floor isn’t a farfetched idea. If you do have a bed with a frame, then you might want to think about guardrails to keep from accidently rollouts.

Let Your Kid Select Bedding

If you put your toddler in charge of picking their own bed, then they might request a bunk bed in the shape of a fire truck or a hammock. Instead, put them in charge of picking their bedding. They are sure to find something they like based on their favorite TV show. Yes, every cartoon character has bedding!

Stick With the Schedule

You should already have a solid schedule worked out for bedtime. There are the occasional exceptions when you child simply refuses to go to sleep. For the most part, you want to keep with your current routine as you make the switch to the new bed. No reason to change the amount of book reading or storytelling.
