  • We took our toddler shopping to pick out his “big boy bed”. We also let him choose a quilt cover that he loved. He was excited to use the big boy bed.

  • Getting a favourite toy and a nice and a favourite pillowcase that might help

  • I am at this stage too and thinking about transitioning my 2 year old son, but im so nervous as I don’t think he will stay in there at all once he knows he can just get out lol

  • Super nanny has some great tips on this!!

  • You will need lots of patience! Some kids continually get out of bed once they discover how easy it is to get out! Definitely get the safety side rails

  • You can get single beds that are lower to the ground and I would recommend this as children do tend to roll out of bed.

  • get a toddler bed or a single bed low to the ground.

  • Prepare her for it and involve her. Keep everything else the same so it’s not as big an adjustment. Maybe let her pick linen to get her involved.
