If your child is ready for a big boy or big girl room, here are some of our tried and tested tips to make the transition easier.

Moving your child out of a cot and into a big bed or aging up a nursery that has been outgrown can be a tumultuous time. Not least because it means your little one is growing up! If your child is ready for a big boy or big girl room, here are some of our tried and tested tips to make the transition easier.

  1. Give positive reinforcement

When moving to a bed, it’s important to let your child be somewhat involved in the process. Let them choose sheets and blankets. Make sure the new bed is well-stocked with comfort items like soft toys or a special blanket to help them feel more assured.

  1. Small decorative touches

Changing the aesthetic of your nursery doesn’t need to be drastic or time-consuming. Completely altering the room isn’t a good idea – instead, add small decorative touches and remove any unused toys or objects.

RoomMates wall decals are the perfect way to instantly transform any room and they have a range of colours and designs suitable for most age groups. Simply stick on and transform a space. They won’t pull away paint when removing them and they can be moved and reapplied without losing stick.

  1. Stick to a routine

Moving out of a cot and into a bed can be a pretty big deal for young children. For this reason, keeping routine and other bedtime activities the same is really important. If your child becomes unsettled or worried in the new bed, stay consistent and reassuring. Getting out of bed is normal, after all after sleeping in a cot for so long they haven’t had the freedom of getting up and down. A good tip is to try installing a night-light to add some comfort and take away any scared of the dark tendencies. Check out our Go Glows from Worlds Apart!
