We’ve been thinking a lot lately about when is the right time to move LA into a toddler bed. He will be 16 months old on the 20th. We spoke with his pediatrician and she said it’s fine to do it now. In fact, she said do it now or wait til after baby Adelle is born. I don’t want to wait until we move the new baby into LA’s room to move him out because I don’t want him thinking she took his room. I don’t know how well he will do making the move at this point though. In a way I think it’s ideal to do it now so he will be adjusted before our new arrival in February but then the other part of me says it’s too soon and he won’t stay in bed. What if he gets up in the middle of the night and I don’t hear him? The stairs to our basement are blocked off by a baby gate so it’s not the stairs I would be worried about, but he could get into other things. There are so many things to consider when making this change. It makes me nervous, as I am sure it does any mom!
If you had babies close in age, how did you decide when to make that change? If you didn’t have babies close together, when did you make that change? How did it go? What’s your advice to me on making the change? Thanks so much! Happy Monday!
