How you can Prepare for your Child's First Night in Toddler Bed
As I am writing this, my daughter Maeleth Sarah Goh is 19 months old.
In the past month she had trouble sleeping through the night in her baby cot, and would wake up in the middle of the night every night to come sleep on my bed.
After a week of this happening, my wife Amilee and I deduced that she didn't want to sleep in a cot anymore and wanted to transition from her cot to a toddler bed.
It could be due to her being taller now than before and when her legs kicked the side of the cot, it would annoy and wake her.
Initially we were nervous about the idea of transitioning her from a cot to a toddler bed - "What if she wakes up before us, runs out of the room and gets injured, or worse?".
We brainstormed ideas on how to prepare for Mae's first night in toddler bed, executed the plan, and everything was very successful -
Mae slept soundly through the night (If you're interested, click here to read my post about how we helped Mae to sleep through the night) and woke up safely the next morning, climbed onto my chest and shook me awake.
The first thing I saw when I opened my eyes was Mae smiling at me :)
In this post, I would like to share with you the safety measures that we put into place to prepare for Mae's first night in toddler bed - to clarify, Mae is sleeping on a single sized adult bed.
