Getting Ready For The Toddler Bed

There is a long list of milestones you can track for your child’s development. These can tell you when to expect their first words, their first steps and their first potty session. But as you have already learned, every child developments at their own pace. One child is speaking full sentences at two while another blossoms at three. The same approach can be taken for the transition from the crib to a toddler bed. The standard time for the switch is between 2 and 3 ½ but some kids go in sooner and other later. The important thing to remember is to take your cues from your toddler.

After Potty Training

Your toddler might notice cousins or friends have already moved to a toddler bed. That could make them ask when they’ll make the switch. If they haven’t locked down the potty training, then you might want to hold off. Even though you can still put them in training diapers in a toddler bed, you want to avoid the potential accidents that might come in the middle of the night. Ideally, your toddler should be going potty before bed and is able to tell you if they have to go in the middle of the night.

Securing the Room

With a toddler bed comes a great temptation to explore. After all, there are no “bars” holding them back. You can establish rules of staying in bed until the morning but we all know how that might work out. A good fix is to make sure they can’t open the door. There are child safety hooks that can prevent that from happening. You might have already child proof their bedroom but it would be a good idea to give the room another sweep to look for any potential hazards. Pay attention to curtain cords and closets.

The perfect toddler bed is one that is low to the ground and can be placed in the same position in the room as the crib. That will make things seem more familiar. Before you bring in the bed, you’ll have to figure out what to do with the furniture that they’ve outgrown. One session with Junk King Dallas Mid Cities can take care of that. These professional junk haulers can be in and out of your home with all those heavy items in no time at tall. You can even schedule them on the same day as the delivery of the toddler bed so you won’t skip a beat. Let Junk King Dallas Mid Cities help get the room ready for a toddler bed. You’ll be glad you did.

How To Handle Bulk Item Removal

Monday through Saturday, you’ll find municipal garbage trucks on patrol somewhere in the city making their rounds picking up trash and emptying dumpsters. These crews start early and don’t end until the route for that day is complete. As long as the roads are open, they’ll be working. It is a convenience we all appreciated and often don’t give a second thought to until we need extra “help.” That would be when there are things you want to get rid of that don’t fit into the trashcan.

The city is extremely selective when it comes to what extra items they’ll pickup. There are all kinds of restrictions on size, weight and how often they’ll make the pickup. Don’t even try to get them to take away an old television. Plus, you have to drag whatever you want them to remove down to the curb. That’s not ever easy. The better approach would be to hire Junk King Dallas Mid Cities. They’ll take care of your bulk item removal but on your terms.

You won’t be waiting for a week (or longer) to lock down your junk removal with Junk King. They like to keep moving and that means scheduling appointments on the same-day or within 24 hours. Junk King also works to your schedule. Sometimes that might mean later in the evening or on the weekend. Not a problem.

As for hauling the stuff down to the curb, that’s not going to happen with Junk King on the job. You’ll be working with a two-man moving crew who will do all the heavy lifting for you. That includes going down into the basement or up into the attic. Just imagine all the things you could get rid of with two capable movers doing all the work.

You’re not going to be limited to just one item with Junk King, either. They’ll be rolling up in a big truck. If you want to fill that truck with all the stuff you need to get rid of, then Junk King can make it happen. Call Junk King Dallas Mid Cities today and  your bulk items can be gone by tomorrow.
