How to Make Transitioning Your Baby Into Their Own Room Easier

Try Transitioning Baby to Their Own Room During Nap Time

As a parent, you must decide when it is best to transition your baby into their own room.  Most babies feel a sense of comfort when they know that someone is near, so when they begin sleeping in their own room they may feel lonely.  Nap time is a great way to start transitioning your  baby into his or her own room, because you can easily check on them while they are sleeping.  It also allows your baby to become familiar with the new surroundings when it isn’t quite as dark in their room.  This will make nighttime transition go much smoother, when you are ready to completely transition your baby out of your bedroom at night.

Alternative Ways to Ensure that Your Baby Is Warm While Sleeping Without Using a Blanket

Using a [amazon_link id=”B003E6OBMA” target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow” ]sleep sack[/amazon_link] or heavy pajamas will keep your baby warm during the middle of the night, so that you don’t have to put a blanket on them while they are sleeping.  If you cover them with a blanket, make sure that it is a thin blanket so that they can still breath if they accidentally cover up their face with it.  Another great option to wrap your baby in a sleep blanket that is designed to keep them safe while covering them up.

    Great tips! I love that room too, so adorable! I would have liked to do something like that with my childrens’ rooms when they were little.

    It took me awhile to get my daughter into her own room. I felt the need to check on her so many times a night! Then we regressed several times but finally it stuck!
