Create A Routine: When the time comes for children to sleep in their new beds it’s important to stick to normal routines as closely as possible. This can include reading bedtime stories, picking up toys around the room, and snuggling up next to a favorite doll or stuffed animal. Activities such as these can help take a child’s mind off the changes in their environment, as well as make going to bed more pleasant.
Make The Move A Big Deal In A Fun Way: Once children reach the recommended age (18 months to 3 years), letting toddlers know that they will be moving into a new bed ahead of time is a good way to get them used to the idea. Bringing them along to “help” pick out a new bed can make this stage exciting, and allowing children to help select bedding to accompany their Teenii Tot Pillow in their favorite colors and characters can make the process fun and enjoyable. In addition, creating a “mini party” to celebrate their new accomplishment can help toddlers feel good about themselves and this new stage in their lives.
Select A Bed That’s Both Comfortable And Safe: Choosing a bed that’s big enough for children and allows room for growth will help them sleep better and healthily. Since toddlers will be used to sleeping in an enclosed area, it can also be helpful to attach railing on the sides of the bed to prevent them from rolling off.
Paired with a comfortable and supportive head rest, like the neck and spine supporting Teenii Tot Pillow, children will wake up feeling rested and refreshed.
While children may miss their cribs upon first making the transition, giving them the right support and tools will help them look forward to growing into big kids and love sleeping in their new beds. The Madii & Dyl Teenii Tot Pillow retails for $49.00, and is sold nationwide in the U.S. and online at Amazon.com. For more information on Madii & Dyl, please visit www.madiidylan.com.
