Ready for a Big Bed....



Is it time yet for your child to move from the cot to bed??? It is a milestone for kids to move to a big bed....
But it will be such a breeze if the parents and the child are ready for the move???

 My Bianca just moved from a cot to a big girls' bed... 1st of all her cot is what you call convertible,, we converted it to a day bed and that is where she was sleeping before...  although it is a day bed it was too small for her already ,, at night time I can see her on the edge of the bed and just a few inches more and she'll be off the the bed...

One thing I've learned about the transition to a big bed is to have the child ready and give a child a motivation  to move by talking about it beforehand..

INVOLVE your child in the process as much as possible.. 
Let your child help you to choose their own bed, bed sheets,  or a new toy for the bed...
And that is exactly what we did for Bianca... We told her that she is too big for her bed and we are gonna get her a nice big bed .. One weekend we took her to the Shops and we looked around for a bed for her,,, She was so excited trying out the beds and looking at all the colorful bedding's...
She was saying "I'm a Big Girl now!"

I'll post her new bed next time and find out why she loves to sleep in her new big bed ....  Want to see her old bed check my old post here .. Cleaning UP the rooms
Till next time...

I promise it will be a good TIP.......

  2. Thank you for the tip! I really think that the double bed in our daughter's room will always be left as a guest bed for it does not appeal to her in any way...

    I'll let my husband know about this post. Thanks again!
