When the time comes to transition to a big kid bed from a crib, there is one way to make this new experience kid approved, and that is by making the big kid bed super dreamy! When your new bed is as cool as some of the ones we have in the Blue Digger shop, bedtime becomes a favorite part of the day for kids!
Transitioning to a big kids bed is a big milestone for kids and parents. Often the crib is the last part of the baby gear to go. It is hard for parents to let go of the sweet baby days. It can be equally as hard on children, who associate the crib with safety and comfort. But, there are so many fantastic beds to get kids excited about the experience of going to bed like a big kid!
To help your child transition easily, experts recommend consistency, putting the child to bed tired to make falling asleep easier and letting your child help pick the new bed and bedding. We have a few really fun options here in the shop that are kid tested and mom approved!
