If your toddler seems keen on the idea of transitioning from crib to bed, by all means, jump right in. Place the bed where the crib used to be and see how it goes. If, however, your toddler seems worried, unsure or balks at the very mention of the big bed, then give it a try at naptime first. Since toddler beds only accommodate crib mattresses, though, you may want to avoid investing in one and move your child directly to a twin bed.
One way to make this transition less dramatic is to put the mattress directly on the floor for a while. This routine—which can involve reading a story, talking about your child’s day, or praying—should leave your child looking forward to going to bed. A consistent bedtime ritual should also help. Toddlers at this age are routine oriented, so when you’re transitioning from a crib, leave everything else the same.
Keeping the bed in the same spot as the crib, leaving the rest of the room the same, and always ensuring the presence of stuffed animals will help ease your toddler into the transition. 2. Take it a Step at a Time. When to Transition to a Toddler Bed Over 90% of 18-month-olds sleep in a crib, but that gradually drops to about 80% at 2 years and 40% by 3 years of age. After the first birthday, it’s wise to put the mattress all the way down and make sure your tot doesn’t have toys or bumpers to climb on. To ease the transition, put your toddler’s new bed in the same place his crib used to be.
If you’re using a twin bed, you may not want to make an immediate switch to grown-up sheets and blankets that are tucked in. Your child may find it soothing to continue to sleep with his old crib blanket, even if it’s too small. A toddler bed usually uses the same size mattress as a crib and is low to the ground. This means you can use your crib mattress longer — though some parents do opt to get a whole new bed for. Climbing out of the crib is not necessarily a reason to transition to a bed.
You may have a ninja on your hands, as many 2-year-olds are, but don’t let her ability to scale the crib spur you to rush the transition. Try these tips first: Put on a sleep sack to make it more difficult to scale the crib. If he is content in his crib, his size isn’t an issue, and you don’t need the crib for a new baby, let him stay in the crib until the move becomes a necessity. Once you’ve moved the child to a bigger bed, take down the crib right away. Your child is less likely to ask to sleep there if.
How to Transition From Co-Sleeping to a Toddler Bed Talk to your child about what it means to have their own room and own bed. Sit with your child at first as they fall asleep, and then slowly move closer to the door with each phase. Only move on to a new phase once a child has acclimated to the current one.
