Transitioning from a Crib to a Big Kid Bed
There are few sweeter rites of passage kids experience than transitioning to a big kid bed! There are many ways to get your little one excited about transitioning, including talking it up, counting down the days, redecorating their room and - of course - getting a beautiful, exciting bed for them to look forward to! Only you and your little one will know when the time is finally right, and as exciting as it may seem, it can also be a little unexpectedly scary. Suddenly, you’ll notice your child is convinced that monsters live under the bed and in the closet. Since children feel much more exposed than they used to in their crib, some sleep regression might happen. Luckily, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite Milo & Gabby products to make the switch from crib to bed as exciting and fun as possible so they’ll never want to get out!
